"Kona Dream" was an active commercial sailing trimaran in Hawaii for years. She was sold and the owner took off the sailing rig. It may be possible to operate her as a USCG inspected charter vessel again. Current owners spent much time and money on the hull and deck and cabin superstructure. Their plans have now changed and we are looking for a new owner to finish the project.
Lots of uses for this vessel. Do you have a dream, for "Kona Dream"?
