Post by BeaconMarineBob »

TriCabin /Trifly History

The Tri Cabin was made in Canada at the Trojan facility of Shepherd Boats. She started out as a 36’ Sea Raider Tri-Cabin which was a fiberglass hull, teak forward deck, side decks, aft deck and deck hatches. The cabin top was wood covered fiberglass. The engines were located in the aft state room with Walters V drives 1969 -1971.

1972 she became the F-36 Tri-Cabin model 440 all fiberglass with a teak aft deck and Flybridge top. Engines were located in the aft with Walter V drives.

In 1976 the Tri-Cabin Flybrige model came into production known as the Tri-Fly model 360, V drive configuration.

1978 - 1979 the production of Tri Cabin 440 and the Tri Fly 360 were moved to the Lancaster, PA plant. The teak decks were replaced with a all fiberglass deck.

The 440 became the 361 and the engines were moved from the aft state room to under the salon becoming a straight drive boat.

The 360 Tri Fly remained a V drive boat with engines and V drives in aft cabin.

There were several configurations on the Tri-cabin Model 361, 363, 364, 365
The last Tri-Cabin and Tri-Fly was around 1989.
