This 40’ Piver Victress Trimaran 1969 is located in Rock Hall, Md. You don't see many of these around anymore, but it is a great live-aboard boat! With oodles of storage and plenty of room due to her amazing 23’ beam she is sure to offer many options for conversion and customization. Designed by the legendary multi-hull boat builder Arthur Piver this vessel represents the sweetest facets of the Trimaran design. She is stable and proud with on-deck space that serves as a platform for hours of fun topside and ease of handling for a vessel her size.
The boat needs some cosmetic TLC and there are some soft-spots in the deck, but overall she is in good shape with no leaks. Very restorable! The owners have lived aboard for the past 16 years and have gone for the no-nonsense life with solar panels, wind generator, expanded water capacity and a Honda EU generator all tied into a substantial house battery bank. She can stay away from shore for extended periods of time. Ketch rigged or run via the Suzuki 50hp outboard this boat offers amazing economy and potential. They don’t make ‘em like they used to as they say! Showings are by appointment only.
