Looks like we have already sold the last of them. We don't know of a dealer in the US that would have one in stock new.

Matt - the LAST one? are they no longer in production then?

By the way, I looked into buying one a year and a half ago - it was about $13,500.

Yep... discontinued. We have not built a TriFoiler in some time.

Yeah - good question. I mean they were expensive as all get-out so that may have held back purchases from people like myself. But, darn it, one day I may be able to afford one. So why were they discontinued?

Is there anything else like it on the market?

Something like it? Not really. The is the Rave, but I think it is no longer made either.

The boat wasn't selling well. Thats it. It was expensive, highly technical and has a narrow condition element. Likes 10-20 knots and no more than 3 foot chop. Can sail in rougher conditions and more wind, but is best as described. Rigging failures were devestating do to the high speeds.
