The Association for Trintel and Trintella lovers all over the world.
The shared feeling of friendship and pride on our ships is important. The TFA is actively gathering knowledge on several different Trintel and Trintella vessels.
We welcome anyone who is interested in the, now classic, steel Trintel, and polyester Trintellas or the newer aluminium and composite types.
As a member, you will receive a newsletter twice a year.
We also organise gatherings twice yearly that members are invited to take part in. The Federation of Polyclassics also organises activities annually. The gatherings take place in spring and autumn. The first is usually by boat on the water while the latter is in a city in either the Netherlands, Belgium of Germany.
Finally, members receive passwords to access the digital archives on the website.

De TVK gaat zich, naast de bestaande activiteiten, sterker richten op het ondersteunen van Trintel en Trintella eigenaren bij het in goede staat brengen en houden van hun schepen. De noodzaak van goed onderhoud is evident.
Hiernaast staande recente foto’s van twee schepen met een opeenvolgend bouwnummer, beide uit 1966, laten wat dat betreft de uitersten zien.
De bijna 1200 Trintels en Trintella's die op de werf van Anne Wever zijn gebouwd zijn fraaie en degelijke schepen en kunnen, mits goed onderhouden, nog vele generaties mee. Het oudste deel van de vloot is met zijn klassieke lijnen een lust voor het oog, maar door hun vele houtwerk ook het meest kwetsbaar.
On Boxing Day the Trintella 44 "Bastiaantje M." is rescued by the KNRM Lifeboat of Hoek van Holland and towed into the emergency harbour. Probably by dirty diesel the motor stopped.
There was no wind and a nasty swell. The owner/skipper hat bought the boat a week before and was on his first trip.
See the pictures and two video's on the KNRM site:
The new book: Trintella Yachts, Holland’s splendour from Brabant, depicts a wonderful image of the developments of a shipyard in ‘s Hertogenbosch. They have built sea worthy, luxurious sailing yachts since 1952, with a lot of passion and workmanship. Although the activities of the yard ceased in 2002, the brand name Trintella will live on while we maintain these durable yachts.
The Trintella name was conceived of in 1964, with the rise of mass production in polyester. The book is used to show a sketch of the historical development of the shipyard and the many Trintellas that were built there. It is being published now because of the 50th anniversary of the name giving.
It will feature many charming restoration projects as well as Trintella sailors who were willing to share their amazing experiences.
The over 225 pages thick book is printed in full colour and holds many lovely photographs and drawings. It will be published as a hardcover book.

The autumnmeeting in Gent ( Belgium) on saturday 22 november was in nice sunny weather a big succes. Eighty members had a great day , with a walking tour through the beauttifull city, a boattour on the wather of the Leie in the afternoon and a dinner in the evening after the members meeting.
Thanks to our hosts are Chris van den Broeck and Dirk Hertecant (Odin, Trintella 4).
Our new committee "Maintanance and technics" edits technical information brochures . The first one with guidelines about the shape, size and placement of the Trintella logo is published.
