Is this the story behind the trimaran “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”?

At some stage in the mid 1970’s, Richard Bach either had a trimaran designed and built for him, or purchased it already built.

We are still researching the history behind these photographs, but this may be the story (we will update this when we get more details.) :

We believe this is a trimaran designed and built by Bent Quorning, a revolutionary and renowned Danish trimaran builder of that era who was establishing a growing boat building business with his older brother Børge in the small fishing village of Skærbæk, Denmark, building trimarans.
(Ref: https://dragonfly.dk/trimarams/our-story )

It appears that Richard Bach named his boat “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”, and at one point it was kept at Daytona Beach, Florida, about two hours drive from Richard’s home in Winter Haven. We believe he used the boat to sail along the Florida coast and perhaps to the Bahamas.
We have found various mentions of his trimaran in articles that were written around that time, as follows –
Ref 1: https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/trimaran-lost.45027/ (not sure if this was in fact his boat, we are continuing our research.)
Ref 2: http://gacooarlocks.com/guns.pdf

We may post additional information here as we find it. (as of June 20th 2019).

The photographs being sold here are photos of Richard Bach’s trimaran, and these photos hung in his Florida home for many years.
