Dick Newick History:
Dick Newick, who has been designing multihulls since 1960, has won long-standing acclaim for the independence of his approach, the success of his boats in competition, and the elegance of the craft he draws. From the start of his career he has made a substantial contribution to the evolution of the multihull, with innovative designs that look beautiful and sail fast. Dick Newick boats have been particularly impressive in ocean races, where they have been formidably competitive over many years.

There are about 130 Newick designs [2004], over 100 of which have been built. Most are light, slim-hulled trimarans with speed and seaworthiness priorities over accommodation volume and cruising facilities with their inevitable burdensome weight. His first design, which he built mostly by himself in the Caribbean in the 1950s, was a 40 ft (12.2 m) catamaran. However, his second design was a trimaran.

Responding to Arthur Piver's claims of the superiority of three hulls over two, he designed a boat to test the configuration for himself, and launched the 32 ft (9.7 m) TRINE in 1960, which is still in service [2004]. He found that trimarans were more stable due to their greater beam, and more manoeuverable, and he has subsequently remained convinced they have the advantage over cats.

Other than his initial catamaran and the many trimarans, Dick Newick has designed several proas. The most notable is the 40 ft (12.2 m) innovative 'Atlantic' proa CHEERS which, to widespread amazement, finished 3rd in the 1968 OSTAR (Observer Single Handed Race). CHEERS has been restored in France and was designated a French Monument Historique.

The most popular design is the 23 ft 6 in (7.3 m) Tremolino, of which over 300 have been built.

Fuel burn is ~7 miles/gal @ cruise
