About this Boat

The Farrier F-33 is a technically advanced trimaran design built to very high  standards. It is a fast and comfortable cruiser, fully trailerable but yet has ocean-going capability. The F-33 trailers at 9' 6" wide, which will require a simple yearly permit in most areas. Advanced design construction techniques are employed to ensure the highest strength to weight ratio and efficient hull shapes, making the F-33 an exhilarating performer and among the fastest in its class to be found anywhere.

Grey Hound was built in Australia by Keals Marine under the strict control of Ian Farrier himself and delivered via a container to the USA.  Her maiden launch was in May 2005 with Ian Farrier present. 
Check out the link below for delivery and launching pictures.

Grey Hound is probably the best equipped F33 for cruising and the occasional beer can race. Cruise in comfort but also enjoy speeds above 20 knots without any anxiety. The Generation 3 floats and beams keep the boat dry and safe. She boat has been sailed seasonally on an inland lake in Illinois for the last 7 years.

Additional Details

Construction and technical Details

The F-33 design utilizes an improved Farrier Folding System with an integrated structural support system. Beams are shaped to direct any water down and under the boat, while also being slim and high at outer ends for less drag. The inner beam end to main hull connections are external, for easier setup and maintenance, which also allows shorter beams for a lower trailering height, and resulting in reduced wind resistance when on the road. Trailering width is 9' 6" (2.9m).

The F-33 has epoxy foam core hulls, carbon/glass fiber beams, all extensively vacuum bagged, and finished with a two pack linear polyurethane (LP) finish.

The F-33 float bow tips are designed to be sacrificial, and will absorb any float bow heavy impact, to help prevent more extensive damage that can result from collisions. The floats remain watertight, and still sailable in most collision situations.
ockpit seating area is high to give better visibility forward, and more room underneath, but still low enough so that one still has a good sense of security from sitting more in the boat rather than on it.
