Notes

As a very general rule, the Crowther trimaran designs of this period known as Kraken's, were fixed beam, more racing oriented craft than the Buccaneers, which were designed with aluminum cross beams and intended to be 'de-mountable'. As a former owner of a KRAKEN 33, I can only comment that it is a truly fine yacht, with few vices and, way ahead of it's time. Shown here is the KRAKEN 33 Mk IV.
