Trinity Yachts pens contract for 59M superyacht
Published: Friday, 08 March 2013
Trinity Yachts has revealed that a loyal client has embarked on his next Trinity, a 59m tri-deck custom-built aluminum superyacht with a 10.2-metre beam. The yacht will be built in Trinity's New Orleans, Louisiana, shipyard by the same staff that built the owner's previous yachts.
With accommodation for 12 guests, the new yacht will have a total of six staterooms, as well as a spa with a full bath below decks. Although not for charter, she will be ABS classed and MCA compliant as for yachts over 500GT.
A rendering of what the new boat will look like on the water
This new yacht is significantly larger than the client's previous Trinity yachts while still meeting his requirements to be able to cruise his favourite spots in the Bahamas but still have a good turn of speed when necessary.
With 2.4m (8ft) of draft in normal operation and a top speed of over 19 knots, the client's cruising expectations have been met. The yacht's exterior styling will be executed by Geoff van Aller, Trinity's in-house naval architect who will get significant input from the client. Interior design will be by the same designer that worked on the previous yachts.
Crew comfort, privacy and accessibility have also been taken into consideration in the design process. Four crew cabins are below deck and forward, two cabins below deck and aft, and the captain's cabin is aft of the pilothouse.
There are also separate crew companionways to all decks, enabling the crew to service all areas of the yacht efficiently without disruption to the owner and guests.
The aft main deck has air conditioning over the raised seating area and the sundeck has full height sliding glass doors to block the wind when necessary.
A diesel powered Novurania tender—capable of carrying the entire owner's party ashore—will be housed in a garage at the yacht’s stern. The garage door will fold down and the entire area will double as a "beach club" when the tender is deployed.
Two Caterpillars 3516Cs, producing 3,386 bhp each at 1,800 rpm, will enable a top speed of around 19 knots. The range is 4,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Delivery is currently slated for 2015.
