Scarab 22 folding trimaran

See build pictures of this design.

The Scarab 22 was developed from the 670 but is quite different. It is slightly bigger all round and wider in the stern sections. The float construction and beam supports are different from the 670 and there are no centreboards in the floats, the board is housed in the starboard settee riser. There is more room inside and has a larger cockpit with accomodation for 4.

This boat was built by Olivier Blanc in Canada using foam composite and epoxy resin.
See more details of this boat build on Olivier's web site.

Scarab 22

The boats above were built in foam composite and epoxy (Ray's) and plywood composite and epoxy (Peter's). Although the boat is the same length as the Scarab 670 it has more room inside, larger cockpit, and is easier to build. There is no building frame for the floats.
The float construction has been modified to speed up the building process, the beam folding arms are now connected to a support beam which is made from plywood and triaxial fibreglass instead of a fabricated aluminium ring frame.

Approximate cost to build in Australia up to painting stage is $15,000 AUD (Klegecell foam composite) and $12,000 AUD (plywood composite panels) if you make your own panels.
