Dick Newick Trimaran
Construction is underway on a Dick Newick Trimaran.
This is a very special project for Lifestyle Yachts.
The Tri is being constructed as a passenger-cargo vessel to service the Niua islands of Tonga some of which may only get a boat delivery every six months.
The Project is being fund raised by the Talanoa & Development Project group.
There has been donations from all over the world. The project is being wached very closely by may other areas of the pacific and around the world which have the same problem with access to there more remote island groups.
The aim is to provide a sustainable, economical, safe and regular form of transport which the locals can maintain and run them selves with out needing a lot of outside help and funding.
More information and photos of the construction can be viewed at www.talanoa.org

Just the deck gear to go on and the vessel is all ready to go.
