A trimaran as swift as the wind
It is well known that the Dragonfly 28 Sport trimaran can do 20 knots and the recipe is quickly revealed: Light, hydrodynamically shaped hulls, little payload, a high performance rig with a carbon fibre mast and membrane sails of ample area. To be honest, Danes, unlike us, like to sail above the reef limit). The easiest way to reach double-digit speeds under gennaker is with a medium wind. Even in light winds the boat goes “like the devil” under code zero (© Yachtrevue).
European Yacht of the year
Surprisingly, however, the question “Is the new Tri the perfect cruising boat?” was asked by the German “Yacht” when testing the DRAGONFLY 28 SPORT and even more so the Conclusio:
“If you like to sail really fast and sporty and can pay the price, the Dragonfly 28 is the better cruising boat overall. No less.”
The test reports of other yacht magazines and the “European Yacht of the Year” award underline this.
For the certified suitability for touring, the shipyard has reached deep into its bag of tricks and widened the narrow hull above it at the waterline considerably. The narrow interior space is used so cleverly that even four people can travel comfortably. In good weather the trampolines provide 10m2 of sunbathing space and the bimini provides shade in the cockpit. In bad weather you will be delighted with the thermostatically controlled heating, the sprayhood and the cockpit tent which doubles the living space.
The boat has a complete touring equipment in Scandinavian finish. We have not only ticked all the options, but also invented additional ones such as bivalent hot water preparation. We pay attention to every kilo. We have, for example, replaced the heavy teak tabletop in the cockpit with the plug bulkhead on a swivel support, so that you can eat and drink there even while sailing.
The unique Swing Wing System reduces the width in the harbour by 60%.
Swinging centreboard and Kick Up rudder make berths accessible which remain closed to others. The Bombard AX2, inflatable with a battery compressor, dinghy with the Torqeedo Travel 1003 electric outboard motor, is stored in the float.
The Raymarine network with 4 instruments and AIS transceiver leaves nothing to be desired.
As we invest in our fleet rather than in sales commissions you will contract directly with the boat owner. We look forward to your charter request for the DRAGONFLY 28 SPORT.
