DRAGONFLY 28 trimaran
The Dragonfly 28 trimaran is designed from conception as a groundbreaking trailer-sailor trimaran. After more than one year in the design and construction phase, Jens Quorning and Steen Olsen have managed to design a trailable Swing Wing version of the popular Dragonfly range, which can fold directly into a trailer with a beam of only 2.55 m. The Dragonfly 28 trimaran has five berths of each 2 m, a separate toilet, full galley and a big open cockpit, as well as a big companionway which offers easy access and good light in the boat. The boat will be available in two different versions: a standard Touring version with 12.0 m aluminum mast and a Sport version with 13.5 m carbon rigging and high-tech sails.
As a new feature, the boat will have big asymmetric floats with 140% volume. When sailing the floats are 1′ longer than the main hull to give maximums diagonal stability when reaching downwind. Folded in the boat is 9.99 m long and the weight of the basic standard boat is 1,650 kg calculated.
I.e. including trailer the total towing weight will be approximately 2,200 kg. Although the trailer will be designed for a total weight of 2,500 kg.
The set-up time for the DF28 on trailer will be about 30 to 40 minutes. The boat can stay folded in a slip with no fouling problems on the floats. The boat has been equipped with the unique Quorning designed Swing Wing system, which means that folding either in or out takes less than 2 minutes in total – using no tools.
