Bill Tripp 39 MARINA

 Yachts /


MARINA is a special yacht with a very special story. The current owner is keen to pass on MARINA to a new owner who will care and respect her as he has done throughout her entire 56 year history. Since launching in Argentina 1967, the one (and still current) owner has clocked up over 120,000 miles cruising the world. During the 1960s, William H. Tripp Jr. was one of America’s most successful yacht designers, drawing custom ocean racers for a distinguished clientele and smaller boats for production builders like Seafarer and Columbia Yachts. His Bermuda 40 for the Henry R. Hinckley Co. is considered by many to be one of the prettiest boats of the era. She is built from 5 year seasoned strip Paraguan cedar, so tight that no caulking is required! The beautifully crafted timber interior is truly unique, in fact – this is a unique and rare opportunity to secure an exceptionally well equipped offshore cruising yacht at a bargain price!
