An entirely new TELSTAR model (2003). (An earlier TELSTAR 9M was also designed and built by Tony Smith until about 1980.)
This version is 'foldable' reducing the beam from 16.0'/4.8m to 8.5'/2.6 m) for road transport and easier mooring where space is restricted. The Double-hinged beams swivel the amas alongside the main hull without extending the boat's overall length.
