RV Triton

Triton, a prototype British tri-maran which is a scaled-down model of a future frigate. The Triton name is presumably a deliberate reference to the maritime god incorporating the prefix "tri" which relates well to the three parallel hulls. The outer hulls or stabilisers are thinner and much shorter than the dominant central hull.

Reports as of March 2004 indicate the ship is to be sold after failing to attract the expected level of interest from world Navies
