A Trimaran is defined as a multi-hulled boat consisting of main hull, also known as vaka, and smaller outrigger hulls, familiarly known as amas. The history of the first Trimarans dates back approximately 4,000 years ago when they were built by indigenous Polynesians and other Pacific islanders. This rich heritage is also reflected nowadays when the names for the Trimaran components are derived from the original proa which used to be constructed by these people.

The name Trimaran is derived from the word tri which means ‘three’ and ‘maran’, meaning wood in Tamil language. The modern Trimarans as the one offered by Premier Ship models began to appear in 1960s. The specific design of Trimarans is becoming more widespread as a passenger ferry. One of the examples of passenger ferry Trimarans, a 127 metre long Benchijigua Express, is capable of carrying 1,280 passengers and 340 cars!
