With unrivaled seakeeping for a vessel of this size the Azzum 12m trimaran will be used by her owner-builder as a seriously capable pleasure boat that will maintain its speed in conditions that would keep most other boats at home. Powering is from twin Yanmar 370Hp diesel inboards running through custom designed and built surface drives. Top speed will be in the order of 40 knots. A sea water ballast tank is fitted in the stem to provide extra inertia to punch the bow into waves in a head sea or to reduce displacement and fly the bow in a following sea.
Accomodations provide sleeping for 4 adults (6 with a squeeze), a spacious cockpit, saloon, galley, enclosed bridge with seating for four and a huge shower and head compartment forward. A large volume cockpit storage area is located beneath the deck.
The vessel is constructed from medium tech e-glass, foam and balsa composites utilising carbon fibre where appropriate.
