A classic van de Stadt design from the late 60's. Long keel passage-maker with an enviable reputation, with all the attributes the long distance sailor needs. The steel hull add to the capability of a proven round the world safe cruiser.
Whilst only offering modest accommodation by modern standards, the traditional layout is practical and well proven.
About 120 of the Trintel 1 and Trintel 1A were built starting in 1960. The Trintel models built in steel were the predesessors of the Trintella line built in GRP.
Not only nice to look at, this classic design still have a really good sailing reputation, in Europe, today.
The rigging were replaced in 2007 and still have 7 years warranty, the hull was sandblasted and repainted in january 2009.

A bit of history:
From those humble beginnings in 1953, Anne Weber came into contact with Dutch master designer Van de Stadt, and the drawings for the first yacht were born. Named the Trintel, after a sandbank off Enkhuizen on the IJsselmeer, the steel-hulled cruiser with mahogany cabin top was built in a 7.5m, 8.5m and 9.5m version and proved an instant hit.
From the success of the original Trintels I and II, Anne built up a family business with a reputation for personal service, seamanlike yachts and the quality building of the highest standard.
In 1961 they became the first yard in Europe to use the GRP construction methods. The resulting 8.5m yacht, another Van de Stadt design, was launched in 1964 and marked the birth of the Trintella name.
