Owner says:

Made by Astus in Brittany, NW France. They have made over 200 of this length, this being version 2, with hugely improved floats and rig. The manufacturer is very active and sells spares/sails as required. I’ve sailed her in the summers, and she’s been stored in a shed every winter.

Performance is great, a family cruiser rather than all out sport boat she hits 9-12 knots without any work, and I’ve seen 15 knots. Boat is comfortable under full rig up to 20 knots true wind, then I reef. I don’t go sailing if it’s f6 or higher, the boat could take it, but I’m a fair weather sailor!

In light winds she sails really well, you’ll easily get higher than wind speed off the wind with the A sail (as everything furls she’s easy to sail solo)

Upwind performance is good, easily 6 knots.

Loads of storage space including a separate anchor locker, v berth and room for loads of kit or kids to hide out.

Launch and retrieval is easy on your own, using the included mast raising gin pole, and “Break back” trailer (tip, using waders make it even easier!)

Only selling to get a bigger trimaran!

It's too late to CALL Steve Walker, on 07985 043 981 to buy the blue boat pictured below as it is SOLD already.

the new owner drove to Sicily for an all too brief holiday there and then towed it home!

The asking price was €13,300 euro or £9,500 GBpounds, which was very reasonable for such a well equipped trimaran in the most beautiful colours that VirusBoats ever used.

If you want to get a feeling of the fun you can have with a boat like this then check out all the entries I have made in my sailing blog. When I look myself at that long list of entries I am flabbergasted actually. So talk with me if you want answers to any questions.


Spec. as follows:
  • Fully battened, mainsail with reef.
  • Lazybag helps reduce the time it takes to get sailing if you leave your boat on a mooring or on hard standing with the mast up.
  • Jib and forestay mounted on furler.
  • Jib cover, providing additional protection from UV for the jib, which should already have a sacrificial strip on it.
  • The mast is easy to step and lift into place, even when you are on your own.
  • Gennaker (a very useful sail) mounted on a continuous loop furler so you never run out of rope no matter how tightly this lightweight sail is furled.
  • Assymetric Spinnaker (pictured).
  • Clam cleats for spinnaker guys.
  • Optimum size 5HP outboard motor. The early boats were usually fitted with 9.8HP 2 stroke engines but these are no longer permitted. But too powerful an engine makes it difficult to control the boat at slow speeds without continually knocking it out of gear so the 5HP is great and will still give 7.5knots, which is plenty.
  • Mainsheet tackle and mainsheet traveller.
  • Two telescopic tiller extensions.
  • Unbraked road trailer which means minimum maintenance and it can be towed by any car weighing more than 1300kg.
  • Lying in Sicily.
