The Rapido 50 – The World’s Ultimate Folding Cruising Trimarans
Rapido Trimarans is delighted to unveil the pioneering folding mechanism that we will use on our all-new, Rapido 50 Trimaran, designed by Morrelli & Melvin Design & Engineering Inc. (concept by Paul Koch, Australia Patent Application No. 2019902014).The Rapido 50's folding mechanism allows owners to moor in a single-berth at a marina, saving costs. Additionally, by folding the floats in the upright position, say goodbye to the barnacles growing up the side of the float (as can be the case with other folding mechanisms in the market).Welcome to the all new Rapido 50. A new future!Leave your comments below!ENQUIRIESTo discuss further, email co founder of Rapido Trimarans, Paul Koch: firstname.lastname@example.org

When the idea to make the Rapido 50 a folding trimaran was first suggested, our initial reaction was, “ARE YOU CRAZY??”.
But after consulting with Pete Melvin from our designers, Morelli & Melvin, we thought, “Why not!”. After all, our management team has built more folding trimarans than anyone else in the world and if anyone understands the challenges and how to do it right, we do!
The folding mechanism will add a small amount to the initial cost but the ability to park the boat in any marina that accepts monohulls will make it all worthwhile and the payback will be huge!

Further details – Rapido 50
Trimarans are safe, powerful and fast as demonstrated by the fact that they consistently win races and hold the solo speed record for circumnavigating the world.
Safety at sea is the No. 1 priority and this thinking is reflected throughout the design and construction of the Rapido.
The Rapido has some truly amazing living spaces which provide more open, private and intimate areas than monohulls or catamarans.
Trimarans are comfortable on all points of sail.
The combination of safety, performance and comfort put the Rapido in a league of its own. The enormous trampoline nets add fun and excitement as you watch the blue water rush underneath you - or as you lounge on the nets while gently floating over a reef. You will be instantly hooked.
