29' SLOOP IN SF MARINA

Steve,
I don't know if you're trying to be helpful or ???  The Triton is widely acknowledged to be a classic.  It has not
been made since the 60s.  Modern economics will not allow its hand-laid, heavy fiberglass to be used again,
and the dozens of Tritons that are always circumnavigating the globe attests to its seaworthiness.  Like all
classics, the price ranges widely.  The '68 Mercedes Convertible, for example, ranges from a few hundred
dollars to $125,000 depending on condition.  So the statement that your friend got a Triton as a "freebie"
thrown in for the purchase of a piece of furling gear is about as meaningful as saying I got a '68 Mercedes
thrown in for purchase of a set of tires.  The recent National Triton Newsletter lists 10 Tritons for sale,
ranging from $7500 to $25,500.  What does that mean?  It means the price has to do with condition, location,
sail complement, and hundreds of other factors.  Our Triton is race-equipped, racing for over 20 years,
consistently in the top four or five in an area where 25 knot-winds are routine, and berthed in a prime location
in SF that most people can only dream about.  Anyone in the SF area interested in a charter, partnership or
purchase of an elegant but tough lady of the sea can contact me at (415) 851-2200.  Alex Cheng.
