Brilliantly designed by the late Earl Edwards, MIT-trained aeronautical engineer, 114’ Rave presents an unrivaled addition to the luxury trimaran or charter markets. Every inch of this sleek, hand-crafted composite tri wants to fly.
Worthy of her own novel, Rave’s story began at the mouth of the Nawiliwili river on the island of Kauai, over twenty years ago. Built entirely by hand by Edwards and his co-owner, Jodi Gardner, Rave is a legend in the waters off Lihue with tourists and locals alike long-marveling at her evolution. After the death of Edwards in 2014, Gardner completed one of the final components of making her sea-worthy: the incredible 140’ carbon-plank mast.
The next chapter of her remarkable story is yet to be written.
USCG permitted for 49 passengers and four crew, Rave’s chartering opportunities represent a substantial revenue stream. Alternatively, she could be finished as an elite luxury craft capable of world-wide travel in unsurpassed style with unbelievable speed. Gardner will entertain various models for Rave’s future, including investing partnerships or direct sale.
