Astus Makes Owning A Small Tri Easy.
The Astus 20.5 has telescopic beams which means that it can easily be collapsed to a narrower width. This makes finding a slip or moorage both easy and affordable. The bottoms of the hulls stay the bottom of the hulls when folded, unlike Corsair's folding design, so you needn't worry about a scum line after being left in the water while folded.
Many marinas have shallow, close to shore, slips available at discount as they are hard to rent. The Astus 20.5 can easily be docked at a slip suited for a boat as small as a Potter or Compac!
Trimarans are very stable boats making it less likely for crew to trip or fall.
The Astus 20.5 is unsinkable with multiple buoyant chambers.
The 20.5 is a coastal weekender or daysailer that is ready to make memories that will last a lifetime without the risks involved with sailing a monohull or catamaran!
Trimarans are fast. The Astus 20.5 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 20.5 is both lightweight and easy to collapse which makes this boat a dream to transport.
You can tow this boat with a Subaru Outback and many other small cars! The lightweight construction of the boat will allow this boat to be pulled by even the lightest weight cars on the road. The amas can be collapsed with 1 person, on the water, in only a few minutes and without any tools!
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 an easy way to step the mast and with an optional mast stepping rig, you can easily step the mast of this boat (on land or on water) with only 1 person in no time flat!
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 20.5 solves this problem with its nearly 300 square feet of deck area! In addition to the large deck space, there is a small cabin capable of sleeping a family of 4 if needed or for the kids to escape the elements on an overly sunny or rainy day.
