Van de Stadt proved the construction of GRP sailingyachts in series. Anne Wever soon ordered the design of a GRP version of his steel Trintel I. The ship became a little wider and got more sail. Although it was constructed with high tech material for the time, the cabinnrooftop still was of traditional wood and the GRP deck recieved a 18mm (!) teak finish. The result of it all was a well sailing classic, with perfect lines and finishing. The first series were delivered with a wooden mast, the later series had an aluminium mast. The interior is traditional with a bench on each side.

ta1alp2Trintella Ia

The difference between the Ia and the I is the shape of the stern. The Ia has a rudder through the aftdeck, while the I has the rudder attached to the stern. The I and the Ia are probably the most successful ship of Trintella and they are still well appreciated by many sailors.
