Astus Makes Owning A Small Tri Easy.
Portable and Robust
The Astus 16.5 has dismountable beams which means that it can easily be consolidated to a narrower width.
The narrower width allows for a small storage footprint on land and an easily trailerable package to take with you to distant waterways only reachable by highway.
Trimarans are very stable boats making it less likely for crew to trip or fall.
The Astus 16.5 is unsinkable with multiple buoyant chambers.
The 16.5 is a coastal capable camp/day-sailer that is ready to make memories that will last a lifetime!
This boat has a much more comfortable ride than beach cats and other sub 16' trimarans on the market.
Trimarans are fast. The Astus 16.5 is designed and built to make it fast and responsive. With a centerboard and artisanally designed chines, this boat is designed to be driven hard on any point of sail and canvassed to provide all the power you could need to beat the weather or your fellow club mates.
Easy to Transport
The Astus 16.5 is both lightweight and easy to collapse which makes this boat a dream to transport.
Easily rigged on the trailer, and light enough to tow behind any car!
Easy to Rig
The French are at the bleeding edge of quality and technology in the sailing industry. In addition to this, they are also not known for being the biggest statured people, on average. This means Astus needed to design a boat that can easily be rigged by one person in a reasonable amount of time, and they've done just that!
Fun for the Whole Family
The biggest issue with a small sailboat is...it is small, there's no room for kids to be kids. The Astus 16.5 solves this problem with its large amount of deck space. There is a dry storage for food and supplies and the boat is buoyant enough for the whole family to enjoy a day on the water!
