Trinity Yachts signs contract for new 59m motor yacht Hull T-062

February 28, 2013

The prestigious US shipyard, Trinity Yachts, is delighted to announce that long-time Trinity clients have embarked on their next Trinity, the 193′ (59m) motor yacht Hull T-062. Scheduled for delivery in 2015, the impressive Trinity superyacht Hull T-062 is a beautiful tri-deck custom built aluminium vessel, boasting a generous 33,5’ (10,2m) beam.

Luxury yacht Hull T-062 will be built in Trinity’s New Orleans, Louisiana shipyard by the same experts that have built this repeat owner’s previous yachts. Trinity’s entire staff and shipyard tradesmen are looking forward to starting this new project and appreciate the expertise the owner’s experienced team brings to the project.

The new Hull T-062 yacht will have a total of six staterooms for the owner and guests as well as a spa with a full bath below decks. Although the yacht will not charter, she will be ABS classed and MCA compliant for yachts over 500 IGT.

The new Trinity superyacht Hull T-062 is significantly larger than their previous Trinity yachts while still meeting the owner’s requirements to be able to still cruise their favorite spots in the Bahamas and also have a good turn of speed when necessary. With 8’ (2.4m) of draft in normal operation and a top speed of more than 19 knots, the operating parameters to meet the client’s cruising expectations are satisfied.

The Hull T-062 yacht’s striking exterior styling is being executed by Geoff van Aller, Trinity’s in house naval architect with significant input from the clients. The interior design will be created by the same designer that produced their previous yacht’s world-acclaimed interior design.

Crew comfort, privacy and accessibility have also been taken into consideration during the design process. With four crew cabins below deck forward, two cabins below deck aft, and the captain’s cabin aft of the pilothouse, the crew will find the new Trinity Hull T-062 yacht exceptionally spacious and comfortable. 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.

Exterior areas of the Hull T-062 superyacht are designed to be comfortable and versatile as is evident by the layout. 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—capable of carrying the entire owner’s party ashore—will be housed in a garage located in the stern of the 59m motor yacht Hull T-062. The garage door will fold down and the entire area will double as a “beach club” when the tender is deployed.

All the employees at Trinity Yachts are proud to have been selected to build another yacht for this family.

The event, organised by Dubai World Trade Centre, will be held at the Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi from March 5-9.

Dubai International Boat Show 2012

Dubai International Boat Show 2012

The 21st edition of the Dubai International Boat Show will see 11 prominent Super Yacht Experience members taking part with two new superyacht builders, Mondo Marine and Palmer Johnson, attending this year. Prized Super Yacht Experience members taking part this year include: AMELS, Benetti, CRN, Fincantieri, Heesen, Lürssen, Mondo Marine, Oceanco, Palmer Johnson, Sanlorenzo and Trinity. For the first time, Sanlorenzo will showcase one of its luxurious superyachts on water at the Dubai International Boat Show.

Super Yacht Experience newcomer Mondo Marine is located in the popular yacht building area of Savona, Italy, with the expertise and facilities to build luxury superyachts from light alloy and steel ranging from 29 metres to over 50 metres in length. American superyacht builder and newcomer Palmer Johnson specialises in the construction of luxury high-performance superyachts and are contributing to a generation carbon fibre yachts with a revolutionary hull design that are faster, more efficient, stable and spacious.

“As Trinity Yachts continues to expand its global reach, the Dubai International Boat Show provides an ideal platform to tap into the Middle East luxury boating market and build relationships with potential buyers. We have gained recognition as one of the world’s elite builders of custom superyachts of high quality craftsmanship, state-of-the-art construction and engineering techniques acquired from many years of experience in the industry. We anticipate a strong response from potential buyers in the region this year,” said Jimmy Rivers, Vice President of Trinity Yachts.

The Middle East has long been associated with the world’s most luxurious superyachts. According to’s 2013 forecast, 60% of the Top 100 superyachts are owned by Middle East residents. In addition, 55% of the Top 20 superyachts in the world currently have Middle East owners.

“The Dubai International Boat Show is synonymous with luxury yachting, and is the perfect opportunity for superyacht builders to market their high-end products to a burgeoning audience. The development of the Super Yacht Experience pavilion supports the growing demand for superyachts in this lucrative market from regional buyers,” said Trixee Loh, Senior Vice President of Dubai World Trade Centre, organiser of Dubai International Boat Show.

“The lure of seeing these multi-million dollar superyachts at close range appeals to a range of leisure boating enthusiasts, whether they are a high-end prospective buyer or a first-time visitor,” Loh added.

Marcel Onkenhout, Chief Executive Officer of Oceanco – one of the world’s finest luxury large yacht builders with the distinction of having built the largest yachts in Holland and having several 80 to 110m projects under construction – said: “Dubai International Boat Show’s exclusive location, select set-up and high profile visitors afford us the opportunity to promote our yachts and reach local and worldwide potential buyers. Oceanco has a strong order book and when the new facility is completed, we will be able to double our build capacity.”

World renowned superyacht manufacturer, Lürssen, is among the makers of some of the world’s largest yachts including the 155 metre-long motor yacht ‘Al Said’, owned by Sultan Qaboos bin Said of Oman.

Four guest staterooms are located below and one VIP guest stateroom on the 01 deck. The interior, by Patrick Knowles Yacht Design, is rich in Anigre, mahogany and harmonizing burl finishes.

For optimal outdoor living and world class views, Lady Sura superyacht’s sky lounge is panoramic and her flybridge features a hot tub, numerous sunpads and lounge seating aft. A large tender garage aft provides ample storage for the tender, jet skis and water toys.

Luxury yacht Lady Sura has a top speed of over 19 knots with a 4,000 nautical mile range at displacement speeds for extended cruising. Her draft of 7’8” (2.4m) enables Lady Sura to frequent shallow water harbors and ports, making island hopping easy and accessible.

Trinity Yachts delivers 50m superyacht TSUMAT

December 18, 2012

Trinity Yachts is proud to present the delivery of motor yacht Tsumat (T057) to its repeat customer whose family has enjoyed yachting for many years. Featuring aluminium hull as well as superstructure, the 50-metre superyacht Tsumat is a breathtaking Tri-Deck custom built vessel.

Representing quintessential Trinity Yachts design, naval architecture and exterior styling and a breathtaking interior design developed by Ramon Alonso of Loguer Design and J.C. Espinosa of Espinosa, Inc. Tsumat superyacht embodies state-of-the-art engineering and yacht building technologies with interior simplicity, contrast, warmth, consistency and comfort.

Tsumat, from an ancient Mexican dialect, means “beautiful girl” or “princess.” Subtle in meaning and strong in phonetics, her very name challenged all involved in her build and design to unite the power of the ocean with the grace of a superyacht. Contemporary and comfortable, luxury yacht Tsumat sets a high standard by making use of every inch of space, resulting in an overall sense of spaciousness, warmth and refinement that is felt throughout the vessel. Her layout includes six staterooms and a tender garage — allowing for an oversized sundeck complete with workout stations and ample relaxation options — while Tsumat is intended to provide every amenity for her active owners, family and their guests.

“Tsumat is the result of our passion for architecture, translated into the world of yacht design,” says Ramon Alonso of Loguer Design. “The design team’s Latin and European influences and the use of select materials and elements historically found in Mexican architecture such as walnut lattices, solid blocks of stone and hand-stitched leather details with a high level of craftsmanship were the key ingredients in the creation of Tsumat’s interiors. Coupled with the design concept centered on comfort, attention to detail and simplicity, Tsumat blends natural and high-end materials with the latest technology thus creating functional spaces of great elegance,” he adds.

Simplicity and contrast is achieved by the consistent use of neutral tones found in open-grain walnut and dark oak veneer accents, brown and beige leathers, wool carpets, and light textured suede. Natural granite and onyx slabs as well as different marble blocks were hand selected and imported from Mexican quarries to emphasize the purity of the design. Stainless steel fixtures and hardware were selected from the finest European manufacturers. The cabinetry throughout the yacht was designed using the same wood species and stones.

A six stateroom all ensuite layout includes a full-width main deck owner’s king master suite—with wrap around forward facing windows providing 180-degree panoramic views — with an adjacent owner’s study and walk up ensuite His and Her heads, featuring custom-made orange onyx sinks with stainless steel fixtures over Thassos marble countertops with walls covered with horizontal textured stone tiles. The shared shower is made with full slabs of white Thassos marble on floors, walls and ceiling, all enclosed in frosted glass. The master suite is spacious enough for seating, ample storage and a 42” pop-up plasma TV.

Four guest staterooms — two king and two twins for children and their friends—are on the lower deck amidships. A fifth queen guest stateroom features breathtaking views from the pilothouse deck. Berths are framed in open-grain walnut and leather with waterfall edges, and flanked with hand-stitched leather wrapped nightstands. Large windows assure guests remarkable views.

The main deck is highlighted by wonderfully open space in the main and dining saloons including elegant seating for 12, a complete bar and wine cellar; a spacious galley with island bar seating for enjoying the preparation of sophisticated cuisine; and, a full beam al fresco lounge.

Oversized and comfortable sectionals and a custom made dining table with backlit onyx inserts provide a perfect setting. The interior design team’s Mexican architecture influence is reflected in the walnut wood lattice ceiling above and a terracotta fabric background is artfully emphasized through the use of indirect led lighting making the space more intimate.

Transitional areas like foyers and stairs are distinguished with chocolate tile leather floors and delicate leather covered railings. Wall and ceiling panels are upholstered in suede of contrasting colors and textures.

The warmth of the main deck flows into the sky lounge, providing a refined space for relaxation and amusement. The focal point of this spectacular space is the bar, which features a one-of-a-kind ocean inspired countertop and two amazing pieces of art from the owner’s private collection.

Tsumat yacht’s full-width skylounge also features seating for 12 to dine al fresco, the captain’s ensuite stateroom, pilot house, two sun pads, and, as noted, the fifth guest stateroom. Her sundeck is immense: hot tub, bar, dining for eight, quad chaise lounging, treadmills, weights, twin sun pads and still room for the rescue tender. Whether recreating or relaxing, Tsumat’s uppermost deck opens to the world’s oceans with unparalleled amenities and expanses.

“This is the second yacht I have designed for this particular client,” says JC Espinosa. “His request, as in the previous project, was for a clean, modern and elegant yacht. Since he always travels with family and friends, we provided large outdoor gathering spaces on all decks and an open interior plan with large spaces flowing together within the public areas,” says Espinosa. “We worked closely with Geoff van Aller of Trinity to make sure the end result would please our client. In my 25 years in the megayacht business, this is my first time working with Trinity and I must say they have delivered an outstanding yacht, Tsumat!”

With a draft of less than 8’ (<2.4m) at half load—one of Trinity Yachts marvels of superyacht engineering given a 164’ (49.9m) length — Tsumat superyacht maneuvers easily in shallow-water destinations while maintaining her transatlantic capabilities.

Simultaneously, Tsumat yacht’s 28’ (8.5m) beam creates exceptionally large living space and plentiful and comfortable room for crew: Tsumat accommodates 12 owners and guests, and 11 crew.

Trinity charter yacht MI SUENO – first superyacht hauled out by Rybovich on floating dry dock

November 20, 2012

Rybovich has successfully hauled out the beautiful 57-metre Trinity charter yacht Mi Sueno on its recently acquired 3000 ton Floating Dry Dock. The haul was executed in the Port of Palm Beach, conveniently situated across the inlet, where Mi Sueno superyacht will undertake routine maintenance work.

Captain Glynn Smith, a lifetime yachting professional with a history of servicing various yachts at Rybovich, was excited to learn that his schedule coincided with the prospect of being at the helm of the first Superyacht hauled on the new dry dock. “Rybovich achieved a flawless lift that seemed so routine as if they had been doing it for many years. This is a great step forward for the Superyacht service industry in South Florida,” said Captain Glynn.

Rybovich President, Wayne Huizenga Jr. was equally as excited. “The haul out of superyacht Mi Sueno on our new floating dry dock ushers in a new era of opportunity for Rybovich and the marine industry of South Florida. We feel very blessed to be at the center of this transformational event,” he said.

Rybovich introduced the new floating dry dock in September 2012 as a means to offer comprehensive solutions to the larger superyachts that previously could only be serviced in the water. Rybovich believes that the ability to haul out Superyachts will ultimately attract a growing number of yachts to the United States. “The response to the news of a floating dry dock was overwhelmingly positive and new service inquiries were almost immediate,” said Rybovich Vice President of Business Development, Francois van Well.
