FREE 3 Meter trimaran sailboat

A Marples Searunner Constant Camber 3M trimaran is available for FREE.  The boat is located in the Illahee area of Bremerton.

Please call or text Eric Kuhner at 206-371-2135 to view.

My father, Ben Kuhner, built this boat about 20 or so years ago, but it has not been sailed in more than a decade. It has been tarped and is complete except for the mast. It is in good condition, but will need attention to all rigging, etc plus construction of a new mast. The mast requires the purchase of a simple aluminum tube plus the addition of some simple hardware as specified by Marple's plans which are available from a local owner of another of these 3 meter class boats.  There are several other owners of these 3 meter sailboats in the area so there is the possibility of class racing as was very popular a number of years ago. There is a trailer and a wheeled cart to enable one person to move these boats—my dad was able to carry one in the bed of his pickup and one on a trailer behind to tow for meet-ups and races. The condition of the trailer and cart is ok but tires are tbd but likely poor.

This would make a great project for someone who would like to learn to sail in a very immediate and fun way, and to potentially race or as a parent/child project.

As I’m sure many of you know, John Marples designed the Constant Camber 3-meter sailboat as a racing class for solo sailors.  More info here: CC 3M Trimaran
