This large cruising trimaran was the collaboration of two long time friends and coworkers at Western Boatworks of California. Jay Kantola typically provided the designs for the firm and Richard Barrie oversaw the construction. If you saw the 1997 movie Titanic then you have already seen one of their collaborations. Kantola designed, and Barrie then constructed, the scale model Titanic used during the filming.
When Barrie was approaching retirement, he consulted with Kantola and asked him to design a large trimaran so he and his wife could enjoy sailing the Pacific. The Barries named the vessel Windswept and launched her in 2000. (Note: US Coastguard paperwork indicates the construction date as 1998.) Windswept was the 2nd trimaran Kantola designed for the Barrie couple. It is 19.8m (65ft) long and 12.2m (40ft) wide. It is believed to be the largest Kantola's designed.
The husband/wife team sailed Windswept for approximately 8 years. They crossed the Pacific from California to Australia and were on their way back to California and got as far as the Marshall Islands. There, owing in large part to the declining health of Richard, they sold the trimaran in 2009 to the current owner.

Closed circuit cooled with large seawater heat exchanger. Hoses were replaced and the heat exchanger was cleaned in 2017. Coupled to the engine is a new damper plate installed in 2017. Borg Warner Velvet Drive 71C transmission. All exchangers, as well as the wet exhaust muffler, are anode protected.
After the transmission, there is a universal joint and PSS drip-less shaft seal, followed by three cutlass bearings replaced in 2010.
Large bronze prop and Max-prop folding prop.
The engine powers the vessel up to 13 knots. Best fuel economy is at about 5.5-6.5 knots.
The engine room is located below the cockpit and is big. You can walk around three sides of the engine and there is plenty of room to store tools and supplies. Access to the room is via a hallway connecting the front and back half of the vessel. Alternately, the floor of the cockpit lifts up and away.
Air supply is via two blowers and a Walker Airsep that reduces engine room odors.
All fuel stored in the 250 liter starboard tank is polished before it reaches the 250 liter port tank. The polishing system employs a high speed transfer pump and Parker Hannaford 2 micron filter. Fuel from the port tank is then filtered with an additional R510 Racor 2 micron filter.
Batteries used to start the engine can be charged with solar panels, portable genertor, or the smart engine driven alternator.
The engine driven watermaker was replaced in 2016 with a Spectra watermaker that runs from the solar panels.
Spares include: Starter motor, raw water pump, alternator, damper plate, anodes, belts and filters.
When Kantola drafted this trimaran, he was able to draw upon his prior 30 years of trimaran design experience. Windchime SV is a ketch and one of his earlier trimaran designs and has been in service since 1973.
Kantola trimarans have two box walls that support the two ama. These box walls can also support masts. Therefore, it is possible to use a single forward mast, two masts, or an aft-mast configuration.
This trimaran is believed to be the largest that Kantola designed. The two ama are large enough to convert into crew quarters and could house as many as 10 crew members. The connection arms (aka) that join the center hull to the two ama contain multiple vented compartments. These are great for storing fuel and propane.
In total, there are over 100 storage areas.
Barrie selected two primary materials to build this vessel from. West System epoxy and Duracore engineered end-grain epoxy planks. When these planks were laid up, and then sealed between layers of fiberglass and epoxy the result was an extremely strong and light construction.
Importantly, for the current owner this was also a construction technique that made vessel maintenance easy. All decks were painted in 2017 with two pack epoxy paint.
Bottom paint for most vessels is an absolute necessity. However, for an epoxy vessel that is totally impervious to water, bottom paint is simply a convenience to reduce marine growth. Since the vessel is in Langkawi where the vessel can be easily hauled, a fresh coating of bottom paint can be applied.
Beginning at the bow there is a large cabin with one queen sized bunk. This cabin has storage lockers, shelving, and large volumes of room below the bunk. Under the floor there is a large storage tank built into the hull that has never been placed into service.
Moving from this cabin towards the stern, we come to two bunks on the starboard side. These large bunks have storage compartments and a large shelf under the lower bunk. On the port side, is a large head with walk in shower and full size sink. Below the floor of the head there is a 70 gallon black water tank. The wall between the two areas is the dagger board trunk. 6 storage compartments are located in the head.
Continuing towards the stern you have to duck your head to get through the forward box wall. This is one of two box walls that join the main hull (the Wa'a) to the two ama. The Thai painting you see in the photo below was painted onto the forward box wall.
Not shown is the Yamaha CLP-320 full size keyboard on the starboard side. Above that is the Sony 600 Watt Marine Amplifier. The galley is on the left of this photo and the range and sink are not in view. Port side counter tops are Corian. The oven, located on the starboard side, is a new full size Italian Ariston stainless steel oven. The oven is built into the navigation desk not shown.
A hallway leads to the back of the boat and leads past the engine room.
Ducking your head a second time you have now passed by the second box wall. That second box wall enables the boat to be utilized with a single mast in the front or back, or a configuration with two masts.
The area you first enter is a large head. There is one wall hung sink, and one large shower with a privacy surround. The toilet is located within the shower area and privacy surround.
Opposite the head there is a cabin area with two bunks. Storage in the walls and below the lower bunk an below the floor.
The very stern of the boat is the large owner's suite. It has a king sized bed and storage below and to the side.
The insides of the two ama were modified in 2010 and 2016 in anticipation of turning them into crew quarters. Ventilation needs to be installed before they can be occupied by crew.
If the vessel becomes a day sailing boat for tourists, the two rear trampolines can be easily be converted to solid deck surfaces with seating for 20 passengers each side. These areas can also be shaded.
The current owner can make modifications for you or participate in your plans to use the vessel for pleasure or business.

The current sail plan is designed for comfortable cruising and/or safe tourist operation.
Sails are light, easy to remove from the mast, and can be stowed out of the elements when not in use.
A gaff rig doesn't doesn't require batons in the main sail. The gaff pole is fiberglass and rides up and down the mast in the mast track.
The sails were recut in 2016 by Hyde Sails in Cebu.
Rigging hardware includes:

The fiberglass sailing dinghy included with the vessel along with it's outboard is considered by some agencies as an acceptable alternate means of engine propulsion and escape.
Unlike the Titanic, there is enough net positive floatation associated with the core within the hulls and decks to keep the vessel afloat.
• 75 lb CQR anchor
• 150 lb Rocna style anchor
There are two companion ways to exit the boat and cabins have overhead escape hatches.
