Rapido 40 #7 “NullEins”

"Rapido 40 #07 "NullEins" with its all-electric Oceanvolt motor - and helm wheel - is going through its final testing before being shipped to New Zealand. It's a busy finish to 2023 and an energetic beginning to 2024!" – Rapido Trimarans

The SAIL Magazine’s “Top 10 Best Boats” for 2024 nominated Rapido 40 is a high tech, all-carbon, performance cruiser with a self-tacking jib, carbon spreaderless mast and an option for a roller furling boom. The interiors have super lightweight, strong, custom made furniture; even the countertops and drawers are carbon!
