That boat was just written up in Seahorse, along with two other 50s.

unlike previous iren's designs(i think)

these 3 new 50's have no centerboards

instead relying on bigger ama daggers......

perhaps they beefed up the daggers and wells but not the aka to ama area

sure they'll be burning the midnight oil on this one

bmwo have gone the same way with dogzilla

light air, no probs......

Wont a trimaran without a centerboard be harder to tack?

It happened to my boat one time. The front fell off after hitting a wave.

I'm fairly sure Nacra designs it's boats to the highest maritime standards. :))
