About Weta Trimaran Class of North America

Weta is a 14.5 foot trimaran used for day sailing with family and children as well as one-design racing.
With its sleek design and lightweight tech materials, speeds of 20 knots can be reached. Due to the Weta’s ease of handling, it’s perfect for the enthusiastic novice or seasoned skipper. It brings the best of both worlds together since it handles like a Monohull with the speed of a Multihull.
