Telstar Trimaran

Over 200 Telstar Trimarans were built between 1973 and 1981. The Telstar is a very popular multihull due to its low cost and fiberglass construction.

Here are some notes and photographs which will help prospective Telstar buyers and current owners.

Joe is currently cruising around Western Australia on his Seawind 1000. Have a look at his website for a very interesting description of that part of the world. As usual, he has many general and Seawind specific sailing tips. Keep up the good work, Joe!

Thank you to Brian Thorpe for giving me the basis of this site. Brian is currently working on a website for his new boat, a Newick Native 38´ trimaran.

If you are a current Telstar or Newick trimaran owner, please e-mail any relevant information and photographs which would like to share with others to me.
