Trintella 29 built in 1968 by Tyler Mouldings Ltd to a Van de Stadt design. White GRP hull with teak toerails, white painted GRP coachroof and grey painted non-slip decks. Encapsulated iron ballast in long keel. Tiller steering to keel hung rudder. Self draining cockpit.
'Fettler' is likely to be one of the best Trintella 29s in existence, having been heavily upgraded over the last ten years and maintained to a high standard. They make an excellent go anywhere cruising yacht, offering impressive sea keeping yet having a moderate draft ideal for exploring shallow anchorages. As a class, they are considered to be one of the best all-round designs from the now legendary Van de Stadt stable. During her previous ownership she travelled extensively around Europe and is now ready for new adventures!
