Broker's Comments

The Trident 24 is a "Proper Little Ship" in the classic tradition. This example benefits from a meticulous owner who has maintained and updated her over the last four years of, mainly, singlehanded sailing. She is very well presented and is ready to sail, having been prepared for the new season. Her sails, while not new, are perfectly serviceable and her reliable and powerful little Dolphin engine is well matched to the hull. Interestingly, Des Sleightholme, author, long-time editor of Yachting Monthly and "yacht cruising Guru" owned a Trident 24 named "Tinker Liz" in which he enjoyed many years of extensive cruising!
