Boat of the year 2019 Foiler – TF10 Foiling Trimaran judged by Sailing World!
“You might get a little wet,” Malcolm Gefter says. “But it will be possible for each of you to foil from the helm on your first go.”
He watches his 35-foot trimaran stream across the horizon, hovering 3 or 4 feet above the water with plumes of spray spitting from its rudders.
We’re chasing them in our RIB, the big diesel outboard humming at full speed. On board the trimaran is one experienced pro and three of our Boat of the Year personnel. The three of them have zero foiling experience and less than 30 minutes on this boat.
Sailing world judge Tom Rich agrees, adding that the TF10 checked all its boxes: It’s very well-built, sails great and meets its design criteria. “They guaranteed foiling, and we did,” he says. “The speed numbers Malcolm quoted about when the boat would do certain things was right on. It went upwind amazingly well too.
We were flying upwind at 15 knots at pretty high angles.”
