The Trinka 12

The new Trinka 12 footer is the third dinghy in the Trinka line. As the "queen of the fleet", the 12 footer features a full size "sit in" cockpit and a hull shape that nicely combines competitive performance with graceful traditional appearance.

Designer Bruce Kirby (of Laser and America's Cup fame) has designed a hull with traditional and classic looks that will plane readily, is comfortable to sail, surprisingly seaworthy, and easy to right in case of capsize. The self-draining cockpit quickly eliminates water and makes it possible to leave the Trinka 12 safely unattended at a mooring.

This new 12 footer maintains the Trinka traditional appearance, complete with bold sheer, efficient rig and finished in tasteful teak trim. A sturdy transom supports an outboard engine. The Trinka 12 is notably well-built and offers exceptional style.
