New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Discovery 21

The latest trimaran from multihull guru Chris White is debuting at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis. This go-fast daysailer is made by Aquidneck Custom Composites in Bristol, Rhode Island. The vacuum-bagged honeycomb cored parts are also available in kit form for owners looking to complete the work themselves. This boat is very light, with a generous sailplan. White says that an auxiliary motor is not necessary in most situations. The crossbeams fold up for trailering or storage, making this a unique multihull in most circles. LOA 21’3”; Beam 8’6” to 15’9”; Draft 10” to 4’; Displ. 1,400 lbs., Sail area 279 sq. ft., www.aquidneckcustom.com. Price: $64,000
