Finally. Unlike the earlier 3 Meter, it will be able to exceed its hull speed. The 3 Meter main hull was so fat that it could not exceed its hull speed of 4.23 knots. I recall Marples always called it speedy. When I looked at that, I came up with the 12′ tri which could go much faster than hull speed. I will never forget a wonderful afternoon zipping around on Roger Strube’s beautiful customized 12.
