The Trintel, designed by Van de Stadt, was build in steel, with a mahogany superstructure and a teakdeck, and with a simple masttop rigging. The first Trintel l had a square stern and a stem rudder. The Trintel la followed quickly in 1961 and was designed as a transom stern with trough-hull rudder.The third build Trintel , a Trintel with yardnumber 222 from 1961, is the of an English owner.
