Trimaran Multi 23
About this Boat
A very well maintained Multi 23 with everything needed to go sailing. This example of the popular Multi 23 began its life in California, but was sailed mostly in fresh water on Lake Erie. Its present owner in Fort Lauderdale has sailed it no more than 3 times since purchasing it in 2016 but has looked after it very well and added some nice features.

The Multi 23 trimaran, conceived and designed by the legendary French designers Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prevost. VPLP Yacht Design is famous for their ORMA 60, MOD 70 and Ultime high performance ocean racing trimarans, and the around the world speed record machines such as Groupama and Banque Populaire.
Intended as a fast day racer, “Nice Pear” received an extensive professional refit in 2016/2017, in preparation for the Race to Alaska (R2AK), transforming it into a highly competitive Raid-style expedition boat, without sacrificing regatta performance (PHRFNW +3).
The boat is extremely quick, upwind and down, but also very easy to sail fast thanks to the full bow sections in the floats, and substantial dihedral.
