"One of the best tris I’ve ever sailed": the words are those of her builder, Darren Newton (a.k.a. "Daz"), managing director of Multimarine Manufacturing and famous for his racing multihulls.

The Ninja 8 is a "one-off" trimaran, built by the Dazcat yard in 1997. Combining top-notch sailing performance with a surprisingly generous living space for her 28 ft (8,65 m) size, she is ideal for coastal cruisers with a taste for speed and pure sailing pleasure. The boat comfortably accommodates a crew of three, but can sleep up to five people.

Last appraised in 2016 and subsequently refitted and continuously maintained, the boat is in perfect condition. She needs no repairs or work, you can hoist the sails and go.

The Ninja 8 can be seen in Cherbourg (Port Chantereyne).
