The Association for Trintel and Trintella lovers all over the world.
The shared feeling of friendship and pride of our ships is important. The TFA is actively gathering knowledge on several different Trintel and Trintella vessels.
We welcome anyone who is interested in the - now classic - steel Trintels and polyester Trintellas or the newer aluminium and composite types.
As a member, you will receive a newsletter twice a year.
We also organise gatherings twice a year that members are invited to take part in. The Federation of Polyclassics also organises activities annually. The gatherings take place in spring and autumn. The first is usually by boat on the water while the latter is in a city in either the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany.
Finally, members receive passwords to access the digital archives on the website.

At the moment we are working on the update and improvement of this website. The most important things have already been finished but there can be some minor bugs left which we will work on as soon as possible.
Besides the update, there are several new functions. Those are still under construction and will take more time before they are completely up and running. On the Dutch site you will find, after logging in, a new item called "Vriendenboek" ( = book of friends/ picture gallery) which invites you to update your profile.
We ask you to bear with us while we continue work on the update of our website.
The sping meeting 2016 is early in the season this year.
The Ascension weekend in 2016 is early, namely from 5 till 8 May. It is going to be a varied and easygoing
meeting. All great reasons to work a little bit harder to get your boats ready for the water in time.
Port Zélande at the Grevelingemeer
This year our sping meeting is in the south: in and around Port Zélande at the Grevelingenmeer. Port Zélande is a recreational park in the area of Ouddorp and was originally designed to serve as a Mediterranean Fishing Village. It is located between the Grevelingenmeer and one of the most beautiful beaches on the North Sea.
We will stay in the same location for the whole weekend to make joining us easier for our members who come without their boat. The location is the Marina Port Zélande.
The Hostess and host for this year are respectively: Diana and Fons Nederhof (Pollux, Trintella IIIa).
They pepared a nice and varied program in the beautiful and surpising area of Port Zélande.
A well-received jubilee book was published in 2014, on behalf of the 50th anniversary of the Trintella. So far, the book has found its way to many interested people and can be found in the on-board library of Trintellas all over the world. Therefore it can be called a great success. The full colour, hard cover, and 225 pages have contributed to the renewed enthusiasm of the brand."
The TFA has a new project in addition to our normal activities, the objective being to increase the support to Trintel and Trintella owners when it comes to the maintenance and upkeep of their boat. The need for good maintenance is evident.
The photograps hereby show two ships with succesive constructionnumbers both from 1966. They show two extremes where maintenance is concerned.
The almost 1200 Trintels and Trintella's that were build by Anne Wever Shipyard are still beautifull sound ships and with the necessary upkeep can last many more years. The oldest ships of the fleet are a beautifull sight to see, but because the large amount of woodwork very vulnerable.
