38' Harris, foam core,cruising trimaran FS PRICE REDUCED $20,000 off original price, now $32,900..I have owned her 7 years and it is time to let her free.This is not a amateur built boat, she was built by a boat builder for himself and the Craftsmanship is seen throughout. This is a foam core, offshore cruiser. She has a comfortable aft cabin, two sets of bunkbeds forward,huge cockpit, very wide CANTED amas with a walkway forward. Her sails have very little use and she spent 20 years in fresh water at Toronto Multihull, Club. She has US papers but was built in Canada, so she was registered in Canada for those years. . She has newer pictures on you tube under Harris and can be found by searching for Harris trimaran. There isn't a trimaran under a $100,000 that will hold a candle to her and she is priced much less. She has a survey by multihull surveyor "John Marples" with a current market value of $65k and is currently insured. Includes never started 3 cly yanmar diesel ($8000), I have removed the old engine and prepped the engine compartment for the new diesel

The vessel had been stored for an extended time at the marine yard prior to this survey. The boat was a SUNDOWNER design and was fitted with a fixed keel and had an aft cabin . The forward aka had stainless rods (photo 2 & 3), welded to chainplates, through the aka with a link plate, tightened with nuts over the top. The reason for and condition of the rods is unknown. The interior was small and contained only within the main hull, without wing pods or extensions. The gear stowed below made it difficult to assess the available space and the utility of arrangement. The engine was mounted in an open space with a cover, which was heavy and awkward to move for access to the engine. Steering cables, also in that area, were exposed and should be covered. The rigging cables were very heavy for a boat of this size and weight. If the vessel sails at the design displacement of 8100 lbs., the Bruce No. is 1.27 which indicates a good Page 4 of 12 Survey Harris 38 WINGS August 14, 2011 file Harris38Mar811 performance potential. The boat was a good example of the type and after completion and repairs recommended below, should be capable of performing the service for which it was intended. STANDARDS OF INSPECTION 1. STANDARDS AND RECOMMENDED PRACTICES FOR SMALL CRAFT, published by American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), 3090 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater, Md. 21037-1416 ABYC standards are the product of a consensus of representatives of government, industry and public sectors. It is intended solely as a guide to aid the manufacturer, the consumer and the general public in the design, construction and equipage and maintenance of small craft.

They are guides to achieving a specific level of design or performance, and are not intended to preclude attainment of desired results by other means. The ABYC standards are subject to periodic review and updating. Their use is endorsed by virtually all financial and insurance companies.

The first edition of these standards were adopted in 1937, the most recent in 1998.

Many of these standards are very similar in scope and practice to the ABYC standards.

SUMMATION Subject to the preceding recommendations and the correction of the noted deficiencies, WINGS was found to be in generally good condition and should be deemed to be an acceptable risk for its intended use and route in the hands of an experienced crew under reasonable operating conditions. It should be noted that it is the responsibility of the owner and operator to be familiar with the safety systems aboard and be prepared to use them if necessary. The Estimated Market Value of this vessel was determined through consideration of several factors. The most current published listings, Internet resources and yacht brokers were used to determine the recent selling prices of similar vessels of the same age and type. The condition of the vessel at the time of survey and the extent of her equipment had considerable influence, as did the popularity and marketability of the particular type of vessel in this geographic area. The Estimated Replacement Cost is the estimated cost of a new vessel of similar size, type and quality.
