Broker's Comments

This Trintella is testament to the way boats used to be built in the 1960's. She has not long come out of an extensive refit, including complete awlgrip treatment,engine overhaul/service, new rudder stock, new dodgers, new No 1 Genoa (Arun), all canvass serviced/cleaned. The hull has a deep lustre and looks wonderful. This has to be one of the best Trintella's on the water today.

This boat has pretty, traditional lines and the deep blue colour of the hull makes her stand out. The single berths are larger than one would expect and the generous headroom makes the saloon comforatble. The nav' station has been well thought out and has everything within arms reach.

This Trintella will suit a couple, or a single handed sailer, who are looking for a boat with good performance and excellent sea keeping qualities. With the investment that has been made in her, she looks set to be still sailing in another 30 years.
