Years ago we bought a 28' steel-hulled dutch sloop from Anne Wever builders of Hertogenbosch Holland. Ot was absolutely gorgeous and sailed wonderfully. Everything was so solid and the interior was a masterpiece of joinerwork. Since then, Ron Holland in the United Kingdom has built Trintellas, although most are bigger, but it's worthwhile exploring on the used-boat market.
Unfortunately a used one was recently scrapped by the yard due to lack of interest in the boat. What a shame.
