Trinity signs 193-foot new build contract

Apr 1, 2013 by Guest Writer

Mississippi-based Trinity Yachts has signed a contract with long-time clients for a 193-foot (59m) tri-deck. The yacht will be built in Trinity’s New Orleans shipyard.

The new yacht will have six staterooms and a spa. Although the yacht will not charter, it will be ABS classed and MCA compliant for yachts over 500 IGT.

The 8-foot draft enables it to visit the owner’s favorite spots in the Bahamas. It will have a top speed of more than 19 knots.

The exterior will be designed in-house by Geoff van Aller.

It will have six crew cabins below decks and a captain’s cabin aft of the pilothouse, and separate crew companionways to all decks.

A diesel-powered Novurania — capable of carrying the entire owner’s party ashore — will be housed in a garage in the stern. The garage door will fold down to create a beach club when the tender is deployed.

The yacht is due for delivery in 2015.
