Dragonfly 28 trimaran

The Dragonfly 28 folding trimaran is a high-performance trailer-sailer, which folds to within the EU trailer width limit on the water, allowing a very quick transition from trailer to sailing. After more than 160 of this model built since 2009, we still believe this innovative yacht is the most advanced and versatile trailerable trimaran on the market.

 

The unique Quorning Swing Wing system allows the Dragonfly 28 trimaran to fold within two minutes (using no tools) to berth in a single marina berth with the outriggers upright and only the antifouling in the water. Advanced 3D CAD design of the folding system and complex computer-cut tooling allows the beams and outriggers to be recessed beneath the main hull when folded for marina or trailer.

 

The powerful, high-volume outriggers extend forward of the centre hull for maximum diagonal stability when reaching, and their unique asymmetric form generates lift to windward for exceptional upwind performance. The new hull shapes plus large, curved sprayrails and raised wings create an astonishingly dry ride for such a fast boat:

Dragonfly 28 saloon

The large cockpit offers generous seating with clear visibility and as with all Dragonfly trimarans, all sailing controls including reefing lines are led to the cockpit for ease of use and crew safety. The boat's security is further enhanced by the foam sandwich construction and the multiple watertight compartments in the outriggers, which make a Dragonfly trimaran completely unsinkable.

 

Down below, the Dragonfly 28 is remarkably spacious with five comfortable berths, each 2m long. The enclosed heads is full width and also offers a private changing space for the forward cabin. The galley is positioned aft and a large companionway hatch and new larger cabin windows from 2016 offer exceptional natural light. When cruising, the (optional) sprayhood and cockpit tent quickly convert the cockpit into a second saloon.

Dragonfly 28 interior plan

From 2016, the Dragonfly 28 is offered in three versions:

Touring with a 12m alloy rig

Sport version with a 13.5m carbon mast and high-tech sails as standard

NEW Performance for experienced sailors and racers, with new larger wave-piercing outriggers with distinctive reverse bows. These create more righting moment and power, for increased speeds in higher winds

 

Prices for a 2017 Dragonfly 28 sailaway boat start from EUR 134,700+VAT.
