This Trintella 49a is the most perfect example of this classic Van de Stadt design you will ever see. Sailed part time, for 20 years, she has visited 3 continents and has been meticulously cared for at all times; wintering indoors for many seasons and fully covered for all others.
Her simple sail plan is deceptively fast and responsive - easily averaging 7 knots and managing 28 degrees to the apparent wind. With her shallow draft swing keel (5.5 ft up, 10 ft down), this yacht can perform brilliantly offshore and still tuck into secure anchorages that yachts of a similar size would not attempt. The sail plan, hydraulics, and cockpit layout make her perfect for a couple interested in long range cruising. Safety features like oversized hardware and strategic handholds throughout the yacht, will give you the confidence to tackle offshore passages.
The fully enclosed doghouse and steering station allows for comfortable passage making in all weather and the large wheel in the rear cockpit allows for a clear view on any tack.
A huge freezer and refrigerator along with ample storage space means fewer provisioning trips. The water maker and large fuel and water tanks let you travel confidently to remote locations and spend weeks or months on the hook.
RobinLeigh excels in the area of comfort and entertainment. With seating for 8+ in the doghouse AND the salon, there's room for everyone. The surround sound system and stereo can play music from CD or any Bluetooth device and the DVD player also takes advantage of the surround sound system for a theater experience. The HD television can be extended on the arm for viewing at any angle.
This yacht is the perfect vessel to take you to the Bahamas or around the world!
