Trinity Yachts starts construction of first yacht in new series
Trinity Yachts, LLC, New Orleans, announced it has begun construction on a 157 ft. (47.8m) tri-deck motoryacht, "RELENTLESS". Delivery is scheduled for early Spring 2005.
It will be Trinity's first endeavor with London based designer Evan K. Marshall.
"Evan has brought many new features into our yachts. We are pleased to have the opportunity to utilize his knowledge of space planning and decor aboard our Trinity yachts," said Felix Sabates, chairman of Trinity Yachts, LLC.
Drawing on past experience in constructing yachts in this size range that are operating very successfully, Trinity has incorporated a number of advanced design elements into this yacht that will take it to a new level.
It will be powered by two (2) Caterpillar 3516 Series II HD marine engines developing 3,380 hp each at 1,800 rpm.
The yacht will be fully classed by ABS and will be MCA compliant.
The yacht will be capable of a maximum speed of 25 knots at trial load and a cruise of 22 knots. Its draft of 7 ft. 6 inch (2.28m) will allow it to cruise many shallow areas normally not accessible to a yacht of this size while maintaining transatlantic capability.
RELENTLESS will carry approximately 16,700 gallons (63,405 L) of fuel and have a fresh water capacity of approximately 2,700 gallons (10,220 L).
RELENTLESS can accommodate an Owner's party of ten (10) guests in five staterooms. The Owner's suite is designed as a split-level master suite that features separate lounging and study spaces with panoramic view and forward facing king bed on the upper level. Three of the four guest staterooms are outfitted with king beds. The fourth is a twin stateroom with a Pullman berth. All have ensuite bath accommodations. The passageway from lower crew area to guest area allows for discrete service while guest are onboard.
A central spiral staircase connecting all guest decks graces the main entry foyer. The dining room sits aft of the entry foyer and is separated from the main saloon with a clear glass partition, etched with a decorative border, allowing for an uninterrupted view from the main entrance to the aft end of the main saloon, some 45 ft. With a flick of a switch and with the closing of two etched glass pocket doors, these two spaces can be elegantly separated. A full beam sky lounge joined by an elegant foyer with marble floor and artwork niches is a superb entertainment sanctuary. A large "L" shaped sofa, a full feature bar with seating for four people, as well as a large card table offers an intimate entertainment space for guests while onboard.
The exterior styling by Trinity naval architect, Geoff van Aller, shows sleek lines and maximizes the view from each window of the yacht. Curved aft main deck and pilothouse deck polished stainless electric sliding doors give an enhanced view of the cruising area as guests enjoy the comfort of the main saloon and sky lounge.
A Van Cappellen insulation design package will be installed to create quieter onboard experience. A large lazarette includes commercial icemaker, washer/dryer, freezer and separate dive equipment storage.
M/Y RELENTLESS is currently under construction at Trinity Yachts in New Orleans and is scheduled for delivery in early spring 2005.
