New F-45RC Now Building!

Will Be The New Cheekee Monkee

A truly exciting new development: Construction has commenced on the new "Cheekee Monkee" at Multihull Direct's factory in the Philippines. Kim Alfreds, the original owner and developer of the highly modified F-31 which morphed from a fully equipped cruising tri to an all out very successful foiling racer, has ordered an F-45RC, which is the all new carbon racing version of the F-45. Keep an eye out for the list of creative performance enhancements that the new Cheekee Monkee will be sporting. Curved foils, electric drives, thin film solar technology, tall rig and a powerful sail plan will ensure many more fun and interesting adventures for the new Cheekee Monkee!

The all epoxy F-45RC has a tall 69' mast, along with curved foils, and while super fast it will still
have a comfortable and cruising capable interior.
