What Industry Publications Say

This is an exhilarating boat which is even more than what the builder and designer wanted. It is quick, it is fun to sail, it is easy to launch and retrieve. It will make a great day sailor. It will be a good camper sailor for the adventurous.

- Sailing Breezes

The Windrider 17’ is certainly one of the most versatile little nautical machines: you can sail as two adults, or one adult and three children; the cockpit is adjustable and the deck plan can be organized so that the crew can participate!

– Multihulls World

The WindRider is excellent for teaching or rental fleets in that it is so safe, responsive and forgiving. A non-sailor can do no more harm than go in circle or stop abruptly. Its ruggedness stands up well to bouncing off docks, channel markers, trees.

- Southwinds



The premier WindRider Trimaran is the most fun you'll have on the water.

Down by the bay or out on the ocean, a WindRider 17 is your first-class ticket to fast and easy sailing. Enthusiasts of all ages and capabilities can rig and launch it. The mast weighs just 35 lbs for easy lifting, or can be raised with our exclusive pulley system (purchased separately). No more excuses… just get everyone together and get out there!

• Stable, comfortable ride holds up to 2 people in the cockpit and up to 3 on the trampolines
• Convenient storage anywhere: outside, moored, or on a beach or a trailer
• Nearly impossible to capsize

Purchase includes everything you need to sail: seats and cushions; rotating mast and main sail; roller furling jib sail; built-in, hand-operated bilge pump; 2 trampolines (one for each side of the main hull); plus all necessary rigging, hardware and control lines.

The most common accessories purchased with the WindRider 17 Trimaran are the trailer and motor mount. Additional recommended options include the reacher kit, windshield, mid-boom sheeting, center foot steering, lazy jack, and center-hand steering.

The WindRider 17 gives you these standard WindRider features:
