The Dragonfly 28 is the latest Swing Wing triamaran from Quorning Boats, which benefits from 20 years of experience building boats with retractable outer hulls. This boat has five berths, a separate head and full galley yet weighs just 3700 lbs, retracts to a beam of 8.4' and can go from behind your car to blasting across the bay in about 40 minutes. The Swing Wing feature also means that you can use normal marina slips since you can swing in the hulls from the comfort of the cockpit, without tools, in about 2 minutes and you still have a boat you can maneuver under power.
