Sea Pearl Tri, 21, 2012/17, sailboat for sale

  • (trimaran) the last hull made?
  • $18,250

  • 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 cover
  • bimini top
  • custom cabin tent with screen
  • tiller cover
  • 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.
