The Trident 24′ is a robust strong and elegant small cruiser, and referred to by Yachts and Yachting as “Undoubtedly one of the most comfortable small yachts we have tested”. It’s sailing performance is comparable with and better than many contemporary rivals and the class is affectionately known by many as ‘a proper little yacht’. This Trident 24′, ‘Shambles’ is anything but! She has been well kept and is highly presentable both inside and out. This Trident 24′ also has a distinct advantage of being a lifting keel version and therefore, suitable for Estuary and Shallow Coastal Cruising. Previous owners have looked after her well and key equipment, engine, sails, and electronic gear has been kept well up to date. ‘Shambles’ is priced to include a substantial braked road trailer, which has remained dry throughout its life and not been used as a launching vehicle. Like the boat, the trailer is in good condition and certainly fit for road usage, and at an asking price of £4,750 with trailer, this really represents outstanding value. A brand new [unused] two person inflatable dinghy is available as an optional extra at £250.
