We're. So. Excited. We've been exploding waiting to tell you the massive news now that it's official: LA VAGA III has begun. It's been a real labour of love to find our new home. It's something that we're really looking forward to and something we're really confident we're gonna love. We want to take you inside our new home, what it looks like.... hypothetically. Yes, we haven't built it yet, so this is as big a journey as ever for us.

It's clean and green, it's a super stable and fast trimaran that we've always dreamed of. As our family is getting bigger, these things have got that all-important storm-dodging speed and an insane level of stability. The guys at really know what they're doing with these beautiful boats and we're so glad to be with them.

Follow us on this brand new stage of our journey. For our existing patrons, thank you so much for being part of this incredible journey. If you haven't already, head on over to our Patreon page to get the inside info first:

    It's been 7 months since you made a video about Eleyna not wanting to sail anymore, and you go and buy a boat like this? I mean, it's an amazing toy, but a horrible family boat, I genuinely don't understand the line of thinking here. Eleyna is going to hate this before the maiden voyage is over.

    I think you will have problems keeping batteries charged after using the engine. Say its a 25 hp (20kw) and you use it for 10 minuets, that's about 3kwhrs. I cannot see you having more than 500 watts of solar on a boat of that size, even if they worked at maximum efficiency that's about 6 hours to recharge, even if your motor could work in reverse and and produce 10 amps, whilst charging your batteries its unlikely you will have spare power for such things as fridge and cooker. And if you have to use the motor for even half a day you are stuffed unless you have a portable generator to charge the batteries.

    Personally this would not be my choice for a growing family. Not only does it decrease comfort and living space but it significantly increases safety risks due to the flying hull and seperate disconnected cabins. As a Mom of two there is absolutely no way I would choose that boat!! Not to late to change your minds, we will still watch!!

    Considering where they are wanting to focus on sailing next speed would be a big benefit!!!! The waters of Southeast Asia are some of the most dangerous in the world they are also home to the largest shipping lanes in the world. If you factor in that element yeah speed out weights an extra bedroom..........and before you go why in the world would they want to go there. From what I understand pirate Hotspot are well documented there. As long as you are smart about it and can move through areas pretty fast and aren't a sit duck the risk factors go way down!!! The move to a faster boat makes complete sense given where they hope to travel next.

    I love the new boat!! Reading the comments, A lot of people are making it sound like this was a bad choice for your growing family..... but I think it will be amazing!!
    With that said I was really disappointed to hear Elayna say that the new boat was " The first really good cruising trimaran out there"
    I think the new boat is going to preform spectacularly and I'm so excited to see the family on it but at the same time there are other cruising trimarans out there that have been around a long time and logged a lot more nautical miles...Rapido is new and relatively untested and even though they have amazing design elements you never know how that is going to translate to a finished boat being build in a "boutique" shipyard in Vietnam
    Once again I'm SUPER EXCITED about the decision...I just don't think that comment was helpful, necessary, or intelligent

    Be very interesting to follow this project. A coupla three questions if you guys have the time
    Based on experiences more than 45 years ago (the last time I was on a tri)
    - how well does it point?
    - how does it turn (tack or gybe)
    - how is it’s performance affected when the boat is at passage weight?
    An old sailor said to me a long time ago “a fast trip is a safe trip”. This boat will certainly fit that particular bill.

    In my opinion only, you proved what a safe and stable the French catamaran boat was by some of the storms you went through Out on the Ocean, oh, I don't think this boat has been proven as safe and stable as the French catamaran, in my opinion, I would have stayed with French catamaran.

    • kvalvagnes


      Day ago

      @angela1984a Yes that is correct - initially the trimaran has greater stability bec its so wide. If you put load on it the stability will increase more than on the cat -for the same reason.

    • angela1984a


      Day ago

      According to Riley this trimaran has safer sailing characteristics than any Catamaran. The physics of the thing makes it easier to feel when it's beginning to get overpowered. Physics will always make it a lot harder to feel when a Catamaran begins to get overpowered.

    It doesn't makes sense at all. As a sailor and father of 3 I don't see how it makes for a good family boat for long distance cruising. The kids won't have their own cabin or they will have it outside, where you can't hear them. On the other hand dark interior with raw carbon fiber, "racing boat"-like accommodations won't make it a place where you will want to be for long periods of time. I hope I will be proven wrong but I think this is a huge mistake. Sorry.
