The Gwahir was built as our own first racing micromultihull back in 1982. We sailed our Gwahir for three seasons and found it to be exceptionally fast and responsive. It is more sophisticated than our other micros and is only suitable for experienced multihull sailors.

Interior space is limited. Even so, we spent up to 3 weeks living on board when cruising and racing in the English Channel.

Gwahir is now also available with several options:

  • A Square Top rig set on an 11m mast.
  • Aluminium beams
  • Double chine hulls instead of round bilge
