Trident No 1: Eric White at helm

The Marcon Trident 24 was designed by Alan F Hill, one of Britain’s most prolific and innovative yacht designers. The first Trident (Number 1 called Trident) was launched in 1960 and around 250 were moulded by Marine Construction (Marcon), the company founded by the Trident’s builder Eric White.

The Trident was Marcon’s first cruiser and, as builder and designer, Eric and Alan went on to develop the Sabre, Cutlass, Striker, Tomahawk, Claymore and Halerberdier.  Marcon also moulded Peter Brett’s Rival yachts and Fred Parker’s Javelin.  [Click on thumbnails to see full images]
