The Rapido 50 is a folding trimaran designed for ocean crossings, offering maximum safety, stability and comfort. The construction is fiberglass/carbon foam sandwich and has multiple water-tight compartments, including the engine, which is in its own water tight compartment and transducers are in water tight wells. The length to displacement ratio / righting moment is amazing making the Rapido 50 incredibly stable and safe. The shape of the hulls and weight advantage means that for those interested in electric propulsion, this trimaran will double the nautical miles under power compared with an equivalent sized cat.
From concept to production - Rapido 50 Center Hull - early June
Rapido 50 Floats - end April
The combination of safety, performance and comfort put the Rapido in a league of its own.
