Admittedly, the best possible connection between the designs and the legendary Trintell1 is the white cabin roof or the love for quality in construction. The chunky designs of the Achterkastel designs are also not found in the pretty new Trintellas. But the love for the brand is there: "I grew up next to the shipyard," says Doomernik. "I saw the ships being built. And that's why I decided to become a boat builder myself."
It worked. In addition to legendary dragons, Doomernik also builds Wally Nanos. With one of these he lies on the jetty in St. Tropez. Coincidentally next to him: Germán Frers. The build quality of the Nano inspires. You start a conversation. And over a glass of wine, Doomernik shows the Argentine designer some sketches he has in mind for new Trintellas. He looks at the idea and immediately knows what to do. The Dutch boat builder had already secured the trademark rights. Incidentally, the inspiration for the first sketches was none other than John Lammerts van Bueren, who is known to wood lovers among sailors as a supplier of exquisite materials for yacht building.
So now the brand is starting its second life. Hulls and decks have a modern shape and are made of composite with carbon fiber components. The ships are consistently designed for two people, especially below deck. They are more like large daysailers than touring ships. The finest wood is used. The masts are made of coal, if desired, the drive comes from Yanmar.
It is still unclear when the first new Trintell swim will take place. According to the head of the shipyard, there is no question that there is interest.
