Astus 16.5

Astus 16.5 Trimaran


The Astus 16.5 is the first of the Astus Boat range that was developed in collaboration with VPLP design. The Astus 16.5 has a modern hull shape and sails stable thanks to the 500 L floats. The Astus 16.5 combines the benefits of sporty sailing, easy transportation and simple rigging. The floats can be extended and retracted by telescopic beams and therefore do not need to be disassembled for transport. The club version is sailed without boom for increased safety. Cockpit and trampolines together form a platform of 8m2. Originally, the Astus 16.5 comes with a fixed centerboard, but since 2018 is also available with a pivoting* centerboard. Due to the limited draft, the Astus 16.5 can easily be launched from a slipway or the beach. Sailing gear can be stored in the front storage locker. The sport* version can be equipped with options such as Mylar mainsail and jib with 17 m2 larger sail area, boom, gennaker with furler, carbon bowsprit, traveler and telescopic tiller.
