Sea Pearl Tri, 21, 2012/17, sailboat for sale
(trimaran) the last hull made?
21 foot cat, ketch trimaran
Built in 2012 and refurbished in 2017
Magic Tilt trailer
5 HP two stroke Mercury (2019 low hours)
Many extras, including:
custom cabin tent with screen
cushions on all seats
trampolines for akas
Made by Marine Concepts starting in the early 1980’s.
The owner stopped production in 2012 and shifted focus to refurbishing older hulls
Most Sea Pearls were single hull with different versions — some with ballast, centreboard
Only a dozen or so trimarans and fewer tri-sport models made.
We believe ours was the last Sea Pearl built, in May 2012. Hull # 473.
The Sea Pearl is a one-of-a kind craft, capable of sailing in 18 inches of water fully loaded.
Sails remarkably well towards the wind, easily hitting 10 knots in medium winds
She can be single-handed with experience
Tiller can be freed to point to windward while you take a break to eat lunch
The draft with leeboards up is 8 inches, and beach-able with overnight on-board capability.
She is extremely light weight at about 900 pounds
We replaced the carpet on the trailer beams with starboard
Goes back on the ‘magic-tilt’ trailer just as easily in about a foot of water
There are no electronics.
She has leeboards and no centreboard
Plenty room for seating and storage in the cabin
Amas/pontoons can be pushed in for docking and trailering
Everything in great shape except I should have polished before I waxed and the teak needs refreshing.
We purchased through Marine Concepts in fall of 2017
the sale price after tax was $30,418
included $12,500 in extensive refurbishments
copy of all invoices available
shipping and duty into The Bahamas added another $4,700
we added a new 5 HP Mercury two stroke bringing our total cost to $36,500
The newest Sea Pearl and a facelift to be younger still.
So why are we selling?
In March of 2018 we were both in a serious accident and now have physical limitations
The accident happened only a month after we got her
We lost most of 2018 sailing season and then COVID
We are in Gregory Town, Eleuthera, Bahamas area until mid June when we return to Nova Scotia.
