Ed Horstman designs started in 1960 with the TRI-STAR 40. TRI-STAR 40 was the first Trimaran to race in the Multihull Transpack race to Hawaii in 1966; taking second place. TORTUGA TOO, a TRI-STAR 39 was the first Trimaran (Sept 1979) to sail from east to west around Cape Horn, experiencing 100 mph winds. Crewed by Husband and Wife who previously build a TRI-STAR 35 and sailed it to Africa and decided to build the first and larger TRI-STAR 39. Today Tri-Star plans come from 18ft. to 104ft.
Tristar are designed to be build using Double Diagonal Plywood (DDP) or Foam Fiberglass Sandwich Construction (FFGC). Beachouse was build using Foam Fiberglass Sandwich Construction (FFGC). There are TRI-STAR designs sailing today that were build in late 60,s and 70,s using both methods of construction that still impress their new owners (most I know of is 4) with their performance and as always their accommodations.
