It is a great shame that Weta Marine and TC Design / Tim Clissold the designer of the Weta parted company as one would have expected perhaps a big brother to the Weta to come on the scene at some stage offering more speed and thrills for those looking for a bigger boat from the same designer.
Today I came across that TC Design / Tim Clissold Weta big brother but it’s from another builder, it’s the Siam Cat Trimaran TC 627 (21 feet) by the Andaman Boatyard and it has just gone into production. Have just one picture. Looking forward to the sea trials!
a search turns up this for the TC627 - FOB Price: US $ 50,000 / Unit
which means it's going to end up more expensive than a corsair sprint or F22...Specifications new composite trimaran 6,27 mt (21 ft)new composite trimaran 6,27 mt (21 ft) but built to be containerable (20 ft container - 3 pcs) - right now in construction in our yard and booking order for 20122 open - promotional price on order right now - enquiries welcome to website andaman boatyard dot com http://www.alibaba.c...imaran_627.html
distribution networks for expensive new boats are always a headache so you never know
weta marine could already be secretly be developing it
or in talks to badge it as a weta21 if there is sufficient interest/demand
but at the moment
there don't appear to be many weta owners clamoring for a US$60,000? upgrade
yes, the floats do look to fold up, which would make speedy trailering and solo swing-down/ fold-up possible
presumably water-stays under the beams to lock them down?
if that's the carbon mast behind it, with diamonds, it presumably is 1 piece like a beachcat mast
so solo setup and ramp launch from a trailer with winch should be similar to a farrier
but probably no beach launch
