Slingshot 19 Trimaran

The‘Slingshot 19’ is basically a 2-seat version of the ‘Slingshot 16’ trimaran. We offer plans for this 19′ boat because we have received so many requests for a 2-seater. It is approximately 15% bigger in all dimensions than the Slingshot 16, and is about 40% heavier. It has a wider beam if you go for the optional folding aka, and can carry significantly more sail.
