Hull Design and Performance
Learn about the MEERMARK M17 hull design
The M17 is easily launched from a beach or boat ramp and because you are sitting in the center hull, the M17 provides a stable and safe way to enjoy sailing. No hiking out on a trapeze or sliding from one side of the boat to the other while you worry about keeping it upright.
Many (if not most) of today’s sailing speed records are held by trimarans, so, while the M17 was designed to be simple, you’ll be surprised at the exhilarating speeds!
If you are looking for another way to get out and play on the water, but it’s not your idea of fun to learn how to right an overturned dinghy or beach catamaran in the middle of a lake or bay on your 1st day out, or you are an experienced sailors looking to just get “back to basics”, the M17 is right for you.
