Though young, Tsumat is a real yacht

ADVERTISEMENT

A boat show is always a place to find new boats. We think we just might have found the newest of them all.

M/Y Tsumat turned eight days old yesterday.

Launched last Saturday from the Trinity shipyard in Gulfport, Miss., the 164-foot tri-deck still has that new-boat smell, even in the engine room.

“We tested it a bit on the trip down because we had some big seas,” said Capt. Peter Nord, who has been with the owner six years and previously ran M/Y Tajin. “She’s rides beautifully,” he said of the new yacht.

The silver-hulled Tsumat cruised much of the way at 18 knots, making it to Ft. Lauderdale in less than 48 hours.

The twin 3516 Caterpillar engines performed well, he said, and are “huge, fast and fuel efficient.” With sea trials both in Mississippi and in Florida, the engines now have about 65 hours on them.

Tsumat means princess in one of the native Mexican languages. Hints of the owner’s heritage are throughout the yacht, including the leather on the wall panels, covering the doors and inlaid into the floor.

Each head and bar area has a unique stone wash basin, including one operated by a sensor in the floor.

The yacht has four guest cabins, a VIP and a main-deck master. A cream-colored onyx is incorporated in the floor, counters and formal dining table. At the touch on a button, a window in the master instantly fogs to become opaque.

“It’s nice to be on a real yacht for a change instead of a unique fixer-upper.”
