Pravnava a very fast 38 foot trimaran for sale: Our commission goes right to our non profit WorldsAquarium

Pravnava is a 38 foot trimaran with a 25 beam and 50 foot stick that draws a fixed 4.5 feet of water. She is fast, very fast and was built for the 72 transpac race, and apparently also did the transpac in  74. Some documentation of the boat says that it was Robert Harris designed and that is what the previous owner believed.  Robert Harris was contacted and after he reviewed some pics of Pravnava he was sure it was not one of his designs. While doing some digging we were able to find out the the boat was built by Bill Morris in Multihull City in L.A. We spoke with the builders wife,and she claims that Bill designed it. It looks very much like a few Kantola’s and is possible the builder used some Kantola design’s as a basis.


Pravnava has been stored out of the water on it’s own custom trailer at the Marina San Carlos dry storage area since 2012.  There are some spare parts on the Yanmar 2gm diesel engine, which has a low 900 hours on it. The engine is raw water cooled and the cooling system needs to be flushed once in awhile.   A fresh water flush has always been administered to the engine before storage but the owner recommends that the raw water system be thoroughly checked by new owner to make sure there are no overheating issues.

It has a good main and jib and a large mylar genoa on it last leg. John Franta is the current owner of Pravnava and he cares greatly about Pravnava and wants to see her go to someone who will appreciate her. John is an engineer by trade and he currently owns Colligo Marine. John’s company specializes in synthetic rigging and he is also willing to work a great deal with for who ever purchases Pravnova and has graciously offered to supply a new set of Heat Stretched Dyneema standing rigging at his cost to the new owner of Pravnova!
