Dragonfly 25

The all-NEW Dragonfly 25 is a high-performance trailer-sailer, easy handling for camping and racing sailors looking for an exhilarating lightweight trimaran which retains comfortable accommodation for weekend cruising with family and friends.

The new Dragonfly 25 is available in two versions, a Touring version for family cruising and the more powerful and dynamic Sport version for racing in the fast lane. The boat is a multifunctional multihull and can easily be sailed and handled single-handed. You can keep the boat moored folded in a normal narrow marina slip or even drysail the boat. Set-up time for rigging up the boat on the trailer till you go sailing is 30 minutes for two persons.

Design & Performance

The new Dragonfly 25 is available in two versions, a Touring version and the more powerful and dynamic Sport version. The Dragonfly 25 Touring comes as standard with a 10.5 m single-spreader rotating alloy mast, furling self-tacking jib for ease of single-handing, and a fully-battened mainsail with mainsheet traveller in the cockpit. The Sport version has a taller 11.8 m full carbon rotating rig and carbon spreaders with Ronstan battencar system, a larger sail area with central rudder combined with a longer tiller extension. Both the Touring and the Sport versions have the same size hulls - it is exactly the same boat - the difference lies in mast, rig and sails.

The powerful, high-volume outriggers extend forward of the centre hull for maximum diagonal stability when reaching, and feature new wave piercing bows as developed on the latest racing multihulls, while the computer-optimised structure ensures a rigid platform for dynamic and responsive handling.

The Dragonfly 25 is easy to trailer and can be handled by any medium sized car due to its light weight of 1,600 kgs in total, incl. trailer. Setting the mast, using the mast setting kit, and launching the boat from the trailer, you will be out sailing in less than 30 minutes - even one person.

The boat offers two smaller cabins, where three adults can sleep - or, two adults and two smaller children. The draft of the boat is 35 cm only, which allows you to sail the boat up on a sandy beach or dry out - offering great fun for the whole family.

The Dragonfly 25 comes with the famous Swing Wing system, which Quorning Boats introduced more than 25 years ago. The beam of the boat can easily be reduced from 5.80 m to 2.30 m in a matter of seconds, which allows the boat to fit into any normal marina berth and even into a 40 ft container.
