The bench model Trimaran is a classic multi-hull sailboat designed to show off a great deal of details such as winches, rigging, and hulls, which makes her a very realistic miniature copy of real-life prototypes.
The body of the sailboat is made in the “skeleton” style to ensure good visibility of the mechanism and the design of the sailboat, including such details as bulkheads, frames and beams. The rear rudder blade is steered by the ropes connected through the pontoons to the master wheel on the stern. The hydro fins on the side of the pontoons make the model stable and steady while creating a visual effect of the elevation of the model. The side pontoons are attached to the main body with a load frame designed to match the style of the hulls.
The mainsail and fore staysail on the mast can be set or taken in, just like on real trimarans. The mainsail of the Trimaran Merihobus is set on the mast groove with the main top halliard. The staysail “rolls up” on a stay. At the front under the bowsprit you will find the staysail’s winch drum. Sail booms are operated by a lever that pulls the sheet of the boom.
