The Trident 24 was designed by Alan Hill,

and built between 1962 and 1976 by
Marine Construction Ltd., in Southampton.
The hulls were moulded to Lloyd’s
specifications, and the first few built were
of composite construction, with GRP hull
and a ply deck and coach roof, about
250 were built in total.
With its traditionally stepped coach roof,
the Trident looks like a 'proper yacht'.
Tridents have a good reputation for
seaworthiness, at least one having
crossed the Atlantic singlehanded.
The design was originally as a lift-keeled
(230lb ½” hot-dipped galvanized
steel plate) which is raised and lowered
by a stainless steel wire attached to a
cockpit winch.
(No 1’s is mounted to port inside
the saloon on the cockpit bulkhead.
It is operated by a handle on the
outside in the cockpit).
With the steel plate down it draws up to
5’9″ (1.75m). But with it raised it will
float in just 2’1″ of water.
‘Trident’ (No 1) has been in my
ownership for 15 years, during which
time she has been sailed every season,
and wintered ashore. She has proved
to be a most competent ‘racer’, winning
most of the races in her class.
She has sailed many miles in the
Medway, Thames, and East Coast
estuaries, where her lifting keel has
proved invaluable.
Throughout my ownership I have
modified and upgraded ‘Trident’ to
keep her competitive, safe and reliable.
