Accommodates up to 4 in an Awlgripped white interior. Aft there are two generous double berths in the wings with storage in large bins outboard. There is a single burner gimbaled propane stove that mounts under the companionway or can be shifted forward. (Perhaps the best sleeping is on the cockpit seats, almost 7' in length.) For cruising in cooler climes the boat was fitted with Espar diesel cabin heat in 2013
Next forward is a utility compartment/head which features a large well insulated ice box, single basin stainless steel sink with manual fresh water and manual salt water pumps, voluminous storage and the head. The W.C., with privacy curtain, is manual and is plumbed via a Y valve to the holding tank. There is a manual overboard pump for the waste tank as well as a deck pumpout.
Ventilation is via 3 large hatches and there is 12 volt lighting throughout. Newick
Sails & Rigging
A Gougeon Model C rotating wing mast 42.5' of composite construction ( wood and fiberglass) was overhauled by Greene Marine in 2000 and stiffened with carbon fiber at that time. Custom carbon fiber boom by Hall Spars & Perry Marine with 4:1/12:1 low/high mid boom sheeting by Harken. In 2008 the boom was lengthened 4' from original to support a 35% larger square top main to improve light air performance.
Greene Marine custom 5' carbon fiber bow sprit with Spectra bob stay articulates P&S new 2007.
The boat has been lightly used since the new sails were built and was not used in 2012 and only three weeks in 2013 so that sails have had much less use than age would indicate.

The vessel was leased with an option to purchase in 1/16, by a former boat builder who, along other vessels, built 11 multi-hulls over his career. He corrected all survey deficiencies, improved the engine installation, installed a new trunk seal, rebuilt the rudder and casette, had a rigger inspect and service all rigging, added ground tackle, installed the solar charging system, added the 2 burner propane stove, purchased galley ware and installed shelving with fiddles and brackets to hold it properly, installed new bilge pumps .
All told over $10,000 was spent on her not including the gentleman's time! Sadly due to an early forced retirement he is unable to continue with the lease program and ALEGRA is available again after his being able to sail her for just one summer.
For those who know Trimarans the name Dick Newick commands respect. This innovative designer created a number of great performing, easily sailed "tris". Her 2nd and current owner (since 1995) has enjoyed her immensely and in consultation with the designer and Walter Greene, owner of the yard that has stored and cared for her as well as being an equally knowledgeable tri designer, builder and sailor have made some modifications to improve her performance.
