The 24 is a compact, easily trailerable, folding trimaran that is ideal for cruising and level racing. With its roomy cabin and optional cruising amenities, the 24 also becomes a highly mobile pocket cruiser. But it's the amazing performance - with 20-knots plus speed capability - that sets the 24 apart. The 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 24 won the "Performance Multihull" title in Sailing World's 1996 Boat of the Year competition. The 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 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 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 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.
