The Simster

Tri-finned planing hull

The Simster was inspired by Simmons’ attempt to build a short, tri-finned planing hull for Bev Morgan seventy years ago. The Simster has the planing speed of a dual keel Mini-Simmons but with more directional control and maneuverability because of the small trailing fin. It features side fin keels that are designed for drive and long carves. These are placed next to a set of wings designed for maximum planing width. While this is a tri-fin board it has evolved from a Simmons lineage and has plenty planing and paddle speed.
