I designed an old trimaran a couple of weeks ago to accompany my frigate. Since the comments for it mainly said: nice but would be a better ship for the town-section, I took the time to rebuild it to make it look more to my liking. Now I'd like to present my first MOC for town since I was a child:

This small trimaran is not so much for regattas but more for recreational activities. I did not smoothen the amas as I haven't got enough blue studless bricks. Additionally I have to say that there are neither rigging nor sails. As it is only a side-project I might decide to work a bit more on it but for now I consider it to be complete.

Comments and criticism appreciated!

Very nice trimaran Horry! I sailed one a few years
ago they are very shifty. The supports on the edge are really cool but maybe make
them a little thicker. The platform is also great with the figs and the steering system.
And one last idea, what about a interior? I know this is a side project but it could be a bit better.
Very fantastic build! :classic:

Thank you all very much! A interior would be difficult and I left it out on purpose as those vessels are more for short trips. But now that you mentioned it I will try to do one anyway.  :sweet:

Brilliant MOC Horry! :thumbup:  The design is just awesome and will certainly stand out in the harbour.
The choice of colours are great too. Nice work.

Thanks for all the kind comments! I've proven two things now. The first thing is: bricks CAN float - and rather nicely. The second one: There's room for a small cabin. I added a sliding hatch to access it. Inside, there's room to store stuff and a little light.
