It is with great sadness that we report that Eric White, the builder of the Trident and founder of Marcon Yachts passed away on Monday 29 June 2015 peacefully in his sleep aged 91.

The funeral was held at Hedge End Crematorium followed by a memorial celebration at Warsash Sailing Club on Tuesday 14 July 2015.

You can read an article from Trident News here how about how Eric came to commission Alan Hill to design the Trident and so lay the foundations for the Marcon Yacht company.
