Dragonfly 1200

The Dragonfly 1200 is the flagship of the Dragonfly family of folding trimarans. The Dragonfly 1200 Ocean Cruiser was, as it says - designed for safe bluewater cruising and sailing.

Each boat manufactured has been custom-built  to meet the special ideas and demands of the owner. The Dragonfly 1200  has been designed for safe bluewater cruising and sailing. The boat accommodates 7 people in 3 cabins and is easy to sail - even singlehanded.

The Dragonfly 1200 occupies no more space than any conventional yacht of the same size in the marina, yet you retain the advantage of the features that a trimaran can give you at sea. Folding even this big trimaran is very easy with help from the standard electrical winches.

Dragonfly 1200 Swing Wing was built between 2000 - 2007. In total 18 boats were built.

Design & Performance

The cabin offers the finest Danish furniture design and craftmanshiop. Going into the boat, you will find a nice roomy center cabin with full standing headroom of 1.95 m. On your port side, a well functional galley with good storage, stove and oven, which is covered when not in use.

The roomy dinette area easily seats 8 persons and also be converted into bunks, if needed, offering a total of 7 berths. On the starboard side of the main cabin, we have placed a nice navstation with horizontal surface for better general use. Behind the navseat, the fridge is built into the bulkhead.

Going forward, you will find the spacious toilet/shower room with plenty of lockers. Further forward, the owner's cabin features a very comfortable kingsize V-berth with windows in the hull.

The aft cabin is separate, located back aft, and offers a nice doublebunk and a separate toilet, or, as an alternative, two single bunks with a head between.

The center cockpit is spacious and secure with 2.10 m seats in teakwood and wheel steering. Below the whole cockpit lies the engineering compartment, housing the engine, tanks and other technical devices. Access is very easy for servicing and most importantly, it is isolated from the cabins. The Dragonfly 1200 is for the top of the line cruising as regards comfort in all aspects - quality - and easy handling, even for one person.
