New Shuttleworth 40' racer/cruiser trimaran design

Well I wasn't planning on doing more updates here but sometimes I see some projects come over my desk that are so beautiful and worthy that they demand sharing.  One of these is a new trimaran design by the Shuttleworth design team for a UK client.  Intended to compete in the Round Britain and Ireland race but also provide reasonably comfortable accommodation for the crew whilst racing or cruising.

 It's in the early build stages in Asia construction method is foam/carbon.
