Remarks :
The Dragonfly is a tour trimaran offering great design and sailing qualities. Easy to sail single handedly or with a crew 2+2.  She is also fun to sail and very quick. Her accommodation makes her ideal for weekends away.  Can be easily trailed.

The boat is built by Quorning Boats of Denmark who introduced the new Swing Wing System in 1989 on the Dragonfly 800.  This innovation made the Dragonfly very versatile and more attractive.  When in port the boat also takes up less space and a lot easier to put on a trailer and transport.  From 1989 more than 150 boats have been built.

Owners Comments:
I bought the Dragonfly SW800 in Denmark in 2011 and she was delivered by road on its own purpose built Brenderup trailer which was supplied by Quorning Boats, as were all the fittings and packing pieces. 

I have sailed around the South East coast, Rye to Brighton and mid channel, mostly single handed.  I'm not so adventurous as Jen Quorning, the designer of Dragonfly, who competed in the Round Britain Race and the Ireland Two-handed Race.

I adapted the reefing system to twin line for each reef, all from the cockpit for comfort.  I re-ran the fore halliard for ease of hoisting the foresail cover single handed, it can be reverted. I changed the outboard to 6HP (recommended 4-6HP by Quorning) ultra-long shaft May 2012 due to the 4HP long-shaft either cavitating or swamping when heading for the harbour.  

Dragonfly was out of the water October 2016, the decals and signage was replaced.  The trampolines were serviced and fixings to the hull replaced at the same time.

The sprayhood was replaced August 2017, this zips onto the extension for a full cockpit cover.

Sails are Elvestrom Genesis jib and main and were maintained last year by the Elvestrom agent in Hamble. 

The other sails are a light Geniker on its own furling drum, which flies from the removable bowsprit and an asymmetrical chute.
