This Trintella is built like a brick outhouse. Built before the 1970,s Oil crisis when polyester resin was relatively cheap. The hull is really sturdy with an encapsulated long keelresult so the boat sits well in the water giving a feeling of safety. She had a favourable survey in 2008.
The underwater profile is a Long Keel with integrated rudder and Tiller steering
Ballast weight: 3,850 lbs.

She is in great order for her age. No pongs or rough edges. I have referred to her as six berh because the saloon backs convert to extra childrens or small adult berths. It is worth noting that there is plenty of space for storage too. The galley is situated on the portside as you come down the companionway on the portside and this allows for maximisation of the saloon area.
The upholstery still looks good and you can tell she has been a loved boat. We think that she only had one other owner.
