"Pados" is an elegant Creative 42 trimaran designed by multihull maven Dick Newick. The beautiful flowing lines, sterling sailing qualities and seaworthiness of the Creative 42 have made it one of Newick’s most popular and enduring designs. The wing-style akas greatly increase interior volume and cruising potential. “Pados” is unusual in that she has been fitted with a nicely finished and lightweight interior, which has transformed her into a true racer/cruiser.
“Pados” is perhaps the best example of the Creative 42 design and was carefully built in 1995 by a skilled craftsman to a very high standard. Under her current owner, “Pados” has become an even better yacht. For example, a galley was built and the interior upgraded by Buckingham Marine Interiors in 2008, always with an eye to light weight. “Pados” was rewired and new LED lighting was installed in 2008/2009. A new longer daggerboard was built in 2008 and new hydrofoils were made in 2009. A new and lighter weight carbon fiber boom was installed in 2009.
The rotating wing mast can be raised and lowered by one person, although the crowds this attracts always provide additional assistance! The designer reports that with 7 persons aboard, “Pados” sailed at well over the true wind speed in 10 knots of true wind. Maneuverability under power is excellent with twin outboards.
“Pados” is a stunningly beautiful yacht in excellent condition. She has always been sailed in the fresh waters of the Great Lakes basin. Her owner has reluctantly offered her for sale due to a change in plans. This is your chance to own a beautiful and functional marine work of art.
