Multihulls World magazine has tested the Rapido 40 in their May / July 2023 issue which is out now.

“Rapido entered the world of multihulls about ten years ago with the ambition of building high-performance ocean-going trimarans. After the 60 and 50, the shipyard unveiled the 40, a smaller model. This ‘small’ Rapido obviously keeps the DNA of its big siblings and features a folding structure that comes into its own when you’re in the marina.”

In the conclusion, the review team states of the Rapido 40 that:

  1. Its performance “exceeds expectations… It’s like a racecar that’s been approved for day use”. And for the best part, “It’s very easy to handle”;
  2. “It’s hard to imagine, looking at it from the pontoon, that it can accommodate 7 people for the night while keeping a functional galley and a large bathroom”.
  3. It’s foldable.
