!!!!!  MULTIHULL of the YEAR 2022 !!!!!


High speed and great comfort combined in a unique style!
Legendary race winner and great adventurer.

The Marlin trimarans are innovative and modern carbon multihulls. With sailing performance far above normal. Probably the fastest trailerable and foldable sailing racer-cruiser trimaran of the World. Perfectly made for single- and double-handed racing and cruising.
Great for team and family adventures.

The high volume in the amas (side hulls) allows flying the two windward hulls above the waves for maximum speed. The volume and design of the amas also provide great safety in strong winds against nose-dives. And the two rudders allow full safe control in all wind and wave conditions. 

The first "Black" Marlin trimaran with the designer, builder and sailor Jan Andersen is multiple winner of line honors (first ship home) and record holder at the World´s largest single-handed race “Silver Rudder” (Denmark, 450 yachts competing). With more victories at legendary races in Europe, the Marlin trimaran is a well-proved concept and design. 

With the comfort for a family, there is a standing headroom of 195cm in the salon and space for 8 at the table. Marlin trimarans are very simple to operate and can be sailed with one or two rudders to allows to manage from the pontoon. The flat deck offers and excellent visibility and overview.

The Marlin trimarans have kick-up centreboards and rudders.
This avoids major damage at the boards and hulls if you hit something in the water.
Perfect for sailing in archipelagos, fjords, rivers and bays with shallow and tidal waters.

The Marlin trimaran is self-sufficient in energy with a 450 W solar panel on the roof of the deckhouse, which supplies power for its electric motor, light and other equipment on board.

Last, and perhaps most importantly, is that Marlin trimaran racer-cruiser version can weight around 1.500 kg (see specifications) fully ready to sail. It can be done, because it is built with carbon laminates and epoxy infusion. This construction method make the boats fast and stable as possible for racing and cruising.

Test sailing session starts in spring 2022!

  • 7-axis CNC Kuka Robots on rails to cut plugs
  • 3-axis CNC Kuka Robots for cutting flat plates
  • Full vacuum and compressor installation
  • Spare generators so vacuum resin-infusions cannot never be disturbed
  • New floors with underfloor heating for constant temperature every day in the year
  • Solar panels on the giant building for ecopower
  • Insulated walls and roof 
  • Separately sections for painting
  • Seven rolling cranes, all around 10 tons

Special equipment for vacuum infusion flat panels, with a maximum surface area of 12 to 4m. We use only unidirectional lamination,  ideal for flat surfaces and bulkheads in one piece, lighter and stronger. Even vacuum compressed plates with both sides flat and gelcoated.

ELICA YARD can produce carbon pieces, such as carbon mast, booms, poles and ultralight settees. The parent company, ELICA PROcessing, has expertise in machine building and industrial solutions. The company is specialised in metal-working and small and big-part welding. With its experience, know-how and cutting-edge technology, ELICA PRO can provide high-quality mould bracing/reinforcements, assembly jigs for the yard. ELICA PRO also designs and produces equipment for the infusion process to minimise consumable materials, vacuum tables and CNC working tables to maximise the robots' capabilities.
