I had a Lodestar 320 Trimax last year. It is a very well made boat with many design features that are only found on bigger craft. For example: Hot welded seams, large tube diameter, thicker material etc.

The Trimax 3D-V 320 cost about 1,100 new boat only, so you got an absolute steal. Roche Marine are the agents in the UK if you need spares. There's also an e.manual on their Website: www.rochemarine.co.uk

Well done!
