The Magnum 18 trimaran made its debut at the RYA Dinghy Show last weekend.
She was one of the biggest boats there and definitely the widest. There were a few extreme catamarans with taller masts and bigger sails. There was also a good showing of trimarans. More than at any other show I have been to in the UK. Nothing compared to Paris, of course. The French have really taken to them.
I heard from a customer recently that in Florida, where he goes quite often, monohulls are not selling but multihulls are very popular. The world is waking up to the benefits of multihull sailing.
