Torpen Boats
Multi 23

The Multi 23 is a small trailerable trimaran made primarily for fun. She was designed by the specialists of high performance multihull: the duo Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prévost from VPLP office.

The idea and the realization are simple: 2 floats and 1 central hull (receiving all appendages) made of PVC / glass / Vinylester sandwich, 2 Carbon / Epoxy arms and spars in aluminium. The expensive materials are used only where they bring the most value. To further reduce costs this trimaran is produced in China.

By sailing she is reagent with highly reassuring response. It is possible to ride on a float but the absence of external rudder did not predispose her to this exercise. The internal compartment is perfect for the sails but too small to think to spend a night, trampolines are here for this purpose. The light weight and small footprint is also appreciated on trailer.
