The SeaCart 26 OD

What is the SeaCart 26 OD? Just a new trimaran that we can’t wait to jump on. This sailboat hold 3-4 comfortably as an inshore and coastal match racer. It has a good reefing system and hard wind sails that enable just two to handle the boat if necessary. Trimarans have been on the rise in popularity for racing because of their fast speeds. It’s no wonder that SeaCart wanted to create a boat that they like to label as “Changing the Game Again”.

  • Built with carbon fiber that’s durable light and manageable
  • Built to go fast and on the edge- there is a good chance you’ll be flying for a good portion of the time
