Obviously, the water technology market will be different in the coming season from the previous one. The changes largely related to the economic situation. But there is another factor: the fishing on the 'dinghies' had 'grown up' and now they want to change not only on larger boats, but on the vessel really reliable, safe, seaworthy, comfortable for travel and weekend, and for serious travel considerable distances. New requirements was inspired by the St. Petersburg shipyard TRIDENT to make changes in model aluminum cabin boats Solo 900 and 720 CT Indigo...
I have clear view about fiberglass. Understand all its advantages, but be worried all the time about rocks under hull at the Ladoga Lake... I had seen my aim perfectly.

Guests often look to our office - authors, colleagues, readers. And recently, the man entered, to whom the magazine has paved the way to the water-motor transport.

Of course, the TRIDENT boats can also be found in the south of Russia (on the Black and Caspian Seas), and it is still the majority of TRIDENT customers - are residents of northern latitudes with a harsh climate, and exactly their requests have formed the main features of the company's model series.
Going on a boat test never know how it will be. One thing is for sure: not do without surprises
To buy or not to buy a boat - the philosophical question. But if buying - a reliable, high-quality, durably.

History of the appearing of this model boats is revealing one. Not the first year the St. Petersburg company Trident Aluminium Boats manufactures aluminum cabin boats of length 6.2 and 7.2 m and more options 'C' and 'CT '. With similar hulls and layout with closed wheelhouse and bow cockpit, they differ in the details, nuances of appearance and general layout.

TRIDENT Piton 720. Come and conquer. Team Trident was the only Russian crew in the race Liquid Quarter Mile, in which their aluminum boat RIB Piton 720 unexpectedly selected victory at venerable rivals and won the sympathy of the public.
We talk a lot about boats between ourselves and on the pages of magazines. What can boats tell about themselves and about us?
We with Petrovich adore fishing on Obi. And not just stand there with a fishing rod near the shore, catching any hutchlings, and get out on the most middle of river where the best bite. With overnight and meeting the morning dawn.
Name Alugator consists of 'ALU' (aluminum), because its body is made of aluminum and magnesium alloy (AMG) and the «gator» («alligator»). Alugator - aluminum alligator.
One of the key qualities of the St. Petersburg shipyard TRIDENT is a constant attention to the safety of their products, increasing product reliability, improvement their propulsion. Not surprisingly, TRIDENT - one of the few companies representing niche of small-size vessels shipbuilding is involved in such a large and serious exhibition as the International Maritime Defence Show (IMDS). And the status of these activities will surely make all the guests of shipyard constantly move forward.
'Anyone who does not want to - look for an excuse, whoever wants - looking for an opportunity.' This famous aphorism best characterizes the policy of 'Trident' in developing new models of boats, which must be as safe as possible, have excellent driving characteristics and at the same time be affordable, and thus become popular and mass courts.
From 19 to 27 January in Germany a traditional Boot Show Dusseldorf was held. Nearly two dozens of exhibition halls were occupied by 1674 exhibitors from 64 countries. Proved to be the most representative delegation from the Netherlands, it was followed by Italy, France, UK, Spain and Poland. Number of visitors exceeded 50,000 people. The team of the magazine devoted several days working on this show and is ready to share his assessment of what he saw.
Anyone who has ever encountered in his life with a choice of a motor boat for themselves under their specific conditions and desires, while being very limited budget buying, perfectly understand me. I should add that it is a choice of aluminum boats because, in my opinion, to discuss the reliability of the aluminum case is not necessary.
In the spring 2012 on 'Moscow Boat Show ' we had a very interesting conversation with one of the visitors , who, along with his family went on the show and chose his boat. Approaching the stand of our journal, he had a long conversation with us, discussing what criteria is better choose their boat. Then we agreed that finding 'that unique', he wrote us a letter to the editor and tell us about their choices. Letter story over time really has come, and today we publish it.
If you ever find yourself on the American side of the Bering Sea, you will be surprised to find that among the boats seen, whether it is a 7-meter shorty or bigger, then dominated exclusively of aluminum hard workers with more angular layout and design. There's nothing to be done - first, the northern latitudes of the Pacific do not tolerate foppish relationship, and secondly, to such projects worth exclusively utilitarian task - hunting , fishing and more time fishing!
Once I became unwitting witness to a curious scene happened to me in the train.
At the next editorial meeting, which was focused on the top navigation, test drives and boat trips and addresses in the coming months, was raised a very important question of systemic testing of small boats.
When an amateur sailor differs from a professional? Amateur, leaving the pier in the morning and when he saw the white horses sea foam, covered with a purple thunderclouds can safely go home to drink tea with bagels. Professionals for whom it is some important task set is obliged to enter the water at all times, dayly and nightly.
After the completion of my service in the Pacific Fleet in 1994 many years have passed, and I feel that the desire to return to the sea didn't disappeared, but opposite has strengthened. Acquired experience, communicating with colleagues traveled to the regions and regular visiting exhibitions, constantly studies of changing legislation, new boats and their technical equipment - all this only burn my passion.
Times, which seems to us difficult and obscure, are the most favorable for search of new ideas, areas of work, to start off, they also offer hope for a more stable future.
Our first encounter with this novelty Petersburg company 'Trident' was held 'static' - at last year's St. Petersburg Boat Show, now existing under the name 'The Baltic Sea Festival.' Standing at the exhibition berth boat immediately attracted us with its unusually high and narrow silhouette 'full-face'. Then it seemed to us that the desire of developers was to create quite a large vessel with a high solid superstructure in the 'trailer' marker can cause problems with the stability ... But the test conducted under the curtain of the previous season, completely denied such speculation.
Boat with 7.2-meters hull of Petersburg shipyard «Trident» is not the first, which was on our 'measured mile' (see number 229). This model is available today in two versions, and both can be safely attributed to the category of 'professional', which highlights such a characteristic feature as 'trawler' slope of windows.
One says «fashion». Another «convenience and practicality». And both are in their own right. Indeed, in recent yachting world swept fashion for 'professional style.' Increasingly, in marinas and harbors more private pleasure craft can be seen 'pretending' to look like workers or fishing, and windows with trawler slope have recently become a kind of symbol.
Fall is time of decline in consumer activity and time to summarize the results of the year for enterprises in small-vessels shipbuilding sector.
