Tripp Lentsch number 1!

Teal; yard number 5265; probably the oldest Tripp Lentsch on the water; she has an electric motor

De yardplate of Jeanne Elise of Floris Draaijer

Flying Yorkshoreman , Antony d'Andrea

Strange, the plate of Teal is not the usual plate but a universal boatyard plate. Why? A mistery

The Jeanne Elise, built at Verhagen boatyard, so it's calle Tripp Verhagen in stead of Tripp Lentsch

Hoeveel Tripp-Lentsch' zijn  nog te bewonderen op de wereldzeeen?
Weet u het?
How many Tripp Lentsch can still be admired on the world seas?
Do you know? Me neither.
That's why I try to find as much boats as possible, and it would be nice to have a list of them all.  I hope you are prepared to give information and join the list.
In that case, send me an email and I'll put your yacht on the list.
The list can also be used as an unofficial owners association.
We could exchange info, help each other out with our experience and maybe later, even a TrippLentsch meeting,  who knows.
boatnames, their owners names, homeharbour and country.
emailaddress is optional.

Look at the picture above.

The yard plate has a building number that corresponds with number 2, but there is no boat number on it.    

Is there somebody out there with an explanation?
