Reluctantly I am selling Trident No.1.Two years of all-consuming family matters and this year’s restrictions have meant that the boat has been neglected and I’m not going to have the time to give it the attention needed. I have started to upgrade the electrics but haven’t got any further than stripping out the old installation. Time for someone else to take it on.
The boat sails beautifully and is a delight, but now in need of some TLC.
Proceeds of the sale will be donated to the RNLI, all reasonable offers will be considered
