     This custom built “40” foot trimaran sailboat was designed by John Marples specifically for blue water cruising.  She is fast, and easily handled  with live aboard accommodations for a couple.  There is additional space for crew and guests in a private aft cabin.  Kolea is the most recent of the Marples “Fast Cruiser” designs.  She is an updated and larger sister of the CC-37 FC (winner of the OSTAR).  The three monocoque wood epoxy hulls were vacuum bagged and cold molded utilizing WEST SYSTEM epoxy.  Her “Constant Camber” construction technique eliminates interior framing reducing weight and increasing strength.  Kolea was professionally built in Paul Rollins boat shop and first launched in 2019." ~ Owners Comments
     Kolea is a beautifully designed, exceptionally well constructed trimaran that is in like new condition. This is a fantastic opportunity to own one of these well respected designs today. Currently out of the water with her mast down allowing you to see the quality and care that went into this build process. Call to make an appointment to see Kolea, you will not be disappointed.
