Rapido 40

For Sailors. The Rapido 40 offers the benefits of the Rapido 60 – but only requires a single berth in a marina. And, the floats can be folded without barnacles growing on their side, thanks to our new, patented, folding mechanism. And from just USD395,000 ex factory. True!!

Advantages of the Rapido 40

Customers always have options in the market. We believe the Rapido 40 will capture the interest of this segment for the following reasons:

Lighter Faster Easier to handle Better accommodation and layout Far more competitively priced Higher tech build Stronger, safer folding system Better all-round offshore Better weight distribution with heavy items (eg engine) in the middle of the boat . More functional interior which will be very nicely finished in a style similar to that of the Rapido 60 And then, of course, there is the folding system…

Folding Features for the 21st Century

To enable easy and more affordable single-berthing at the marina, the R40 will be a folding trimaran (folding the outer floats (amas) up against the centre hull) – but with an important difference. The R40 will feature a folding mechanism for the 21st Century.

The R40 will introduce a remarkable engineering solution to two age-old problems typically associated with folding trimarans; namely, the folding mechanism will:

Not compromise the boat’s stability; and Actually keep the floats in the upright position. Say goodbye to weeds, algae and barnacles growing on the sides!

C Foil

The C foils will give the Rapido 40 a massive performance boost both upwind and downwind without adding a lot of complexity. For normal day sailing or cruising, both can be in the “down" position or one raised without adding material drag.

The Rapido 40’s tacking and upwind ability is expected to equal the Rapido 60’s excellent performance.

General Information

FAST AND POWERFUL Trimarans are safe, powerful and fast as demonstrated by the fact that they consistently win races and hold the solo speed record for circumnavigating the world.

SAFE Safety at sea is the No. 1 priority and this thinking is reflected throughout the design and construction of the Rapido.

SPACIOUS The Rapido 40 has some truly amazing living spaces which provide more open, private and intimate areas than monohulls or catamarans.

STABLE AND COMFORTABLE Trimarans are comfortable on all points of sail.

FUN The combination of safety, performance and comfort put the Rapido in a league of its own. The enormous trampoline nets add fun and excitement as you watch the blue water rush underneath you – or as you lounge on the nets while gently floating over a reef. You will be instantly hooked..
