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'. Randy Browning, creator of this site, was a former owner of a KRAKEN 33. He said, "I can only comment that it is a truly fine yacht, with few vices and way ahead of its time."
