Dragonfly 28 Tri Me

"Relaxing fast - Fast relaxing

I never thought it was possible, and I never quite believed the stories about sailing a Dragonfly to be true. But, they are indeed true.

We sailed the Tri Me 1 for a week with 4 persons on board, sailing from Middelfart to Dyvig and the lovely island of Lyø back through the Alssund to Skærbæk. The kids were sunbathing or even sleeping on the trampoline, while we were sailing into the sunset - it was unsurpassed relaxation and happiness. As soon as the wind picked up, she effortlessly started pushing forward without much heeling. And even though I have never sailed a multihull before, we managed 17.2 kn speed in 18.8 kn of true wind speed, holding the tiller with 2 fingers. Amazing, the kids were screaming. 

Compared to our own 40ft monohull, the space below deck is obviously limited, but so well thought through that we got used to it in no time. We appreciated most the light air in the salon. Sitting high at the table, you can overlook the life at the harbor just like you were sitting in a pilot salon yacht. It was the most impressive sailing experience I have had so far, offering relaxation and unknown speed at the same time. It was a pity to hand her back to Quorning Boats – but, we hope not for long."
