The F-24 Mk.II is a compact, easily trailerable, folding trimaran that is ideal for cruising and level racing. With its roomy cabin and optional cruising amenities, the F-24 also becomes a highly mobile pocket cruiser. But it's the amazing performance - with 20-knots plus speed capability - that sets the F-24 apart. The F-24 is a tough, lightweight sport boat that is exceptionally fast, responsive and safe to sail. In recognition of its versatility and broad-based appeal, the F-24 won the "Performance Multihull" title in Sailing World's 1996 Boat of the Year competition. The F-24 has a surprisingly large and roomy cabin. The large pop-top companionway hatch can be rigged with a weather enclosure fitted with either windows or screens. The F-24 converts easily into an overnight family cruiser. An optional galley module that includes a sink, stove, water tank and pump provides basic amenities, and there's also space for a portable head. When daysailing or racing, these units can be removed easily to save space and reduce weight. The two single settees in the cabin and a V-berth forward sleep four in comfort. The mast is easily raised or lowered by one person using the trailer winch or one of the jib sheet winches. The flexible sail plan gives the F-24 all-round performance in a wide range of conditions and is easy to handle. It sports a fully-battened, square-top mainsail, which places more sail area aloft to take best advantage of light air. The working jib may be either hank-on or roller furled. The F-24 employs a single, carbon-reinforced daggerboard situated in the main hull. This is an efficient foil of uniform section that minimizes drag while enhancing lift, boat speed and overall performance.
