Kurt Hughes Design: New Family Day Sailor CHS X19 (Screenshots)

Seems the US designer and naval architect Kurt Hughes has something new in the pipeline as seen on his FB page. 🙂 CHS stands for Charlotte Harbor Sails… the CHS X19 Trimaran is a family friendly, but high performant day sailor and can be ordered as sports model at a basic prize of $14,995 (plus tax, title, registration, rigging and transportation). A 2nd version as “super racer” is offered with carbon fibre construction.

  • It is a fast and comfortable day boat which will take you and up to 3 others for a thrill ride.
  • Overnight camping trips are also possible for those with enough tenacity and understanding partners!
  • The boat features a big compartment in the front, accessible through a deck hatch.
  • A smaller storage space is available behind the mast and can be easily accessed directly from the deck.
  • Side hulls slide to center hull to allow towing on the road.
