The Trintels were originally built by the Anne Wever yard in Den Bosch, The Netherlands.
Initially, Anne was the harbourmaster at the Yachtclub “De Viking” and he started building yachts in his spare time in 1953. His father, who had been the skipper of the large sailing yacht Idunia, taught Anne that the perfect finishing of ships was essential to success.

Anne asked legendary yacht designer E.G. Van de Stadt to create his own exclusive yacht. This became the Trintel I, named after a sandbank in the IJsselmeer. The Trintel 1 was the very first model of what became the exclusive Trintella range of yachts. Johanna is one of the early examples-later Trintel 1s for example, while still having the steel hulls, had an aluminium mast before eventually, GRP construction became standard.

Approximately 120 Trintel 1’s were built many of which continue to be sailed actively around the world, supported by a dedicated Owner’s Association.
