----- >> There are two excellent articles about the Contour 34 SC, one on Boats.com by Bob Perry and another by John Kretschmer in Sailing Magazine that are highly recommended. Please e-mail for the links. From CONTOUR 34SC by John Kretschmer in Sailing Magazine, August 7, 1998: Contour Yachts President Paul Contouris insists that each new boat developed by his Erin, Ontario, firm "represents a big step forward. This is critical," he said, "because there are only a few major players in the trailerable trimaran market." There is no disputing that Contour's new 34 SC (sport cruiser) has upped the ante and probably changed the trailerable trimaran market forever. No longer do these boats have to be made with Spartan, plastic tunnel interiors just because they sail like the wind and can be shoehorned onto a trailer. Great performance is no longer enough. With the introduction of the 34 SC, trailerable trimarans have come of age. The success of its previous big boat, the Contour 30 MK II, convinced Contour Yachts that there was a market for a larger, oceangoing folding trimaran. Once again, Cole Beadon was commissioned to design the new boat. Contouris and associate Rob Lambden had several key design priorities that made Beadon's task challenging. They wanted the 34 SC to be the largest trailerable trimaran available with viable accommodations for extended cruising. The 34 SC had to also be a legitimate offshore yacht with transoceanic capabilities, and the swing-wing retractable ama system had to have the structural integrity of a fixed-beam system. They also recognized the need to develop an easy rigging system to keep the boat manageable for a couple to trailer. launch. And, while they wanted the boat to be set up for singlehanded sailing, with all controls led to the cockpit, they insisted that Beadon not compromise the mantra of pure performance. Trailerability When you first see the 34 SC charging along, leaving a rooster tail astern, you would never suspect that at the end of the day it will cruise over to the small-boat launching ramp and be hauled onto a trailer. And while this is surprisingly easy to do, it is not really the intent. Taking advantage of conventional dockage with the 12-foot, 6-inch folded beam, most 34 SC owners leave the boat in the water all season. The trailer is convenient for hauling the boat behind a sport utility vehicle on a winter trip to Florida and practical for storing the boat in the driveway instead of paying off-season storage fees. An important design factor of the swing-wing system is that the amas stay on the same horizontal plane when collapsed. In fact, while slowly motoring, the amas can be winched in or out, which takes only a minute or two. As another development, the 34 SC akas (the arms that attach the amas to the main hull) extend well inboard when rotated to their sailing position and create a very rigid structure on the water when securely bolted in place. Although all three hulls are proportionately narrow (using a DWL of 23.18 feet, the beam-to-length ratio of the main hull is 7-to-1), the overall beam of 24 feet, 4 inches makes the 34 SC seem huge when sailing. Each hull has a fine entry and a plumb bow. The amas are elliptically shaped for low wetted surface with a high prismatic coefficient. Therefore, as speed increases and the leeward ama immerses, the longitudinal center of buoyancy moves forward, preventing the bow from burying. The akas are also supported by stays to the main hull. The main hull has flattish sections, especially aft, and a wide stern to promote early planing. A sleek, rounded cabintrunk blends handsomely into the main hull. When you consider the varied applications of the boat, from surviving on the interstate to weathering gales at sea, it becomes obvious that a high level of engineering expertise was required to build the 34 SC. "Not long ago it simply was not possible to build a folding tri of this size," Contouri
