Yacht Spotting and New Launches

164’ (49.9m)
Tsumat Launched at Trinity Yachts

TSUMAT is bedecked with flags prior to her launching.

Trinity Yachts is pleased to announce its first launch of 2012: Tsumat, a 164’ (49.9m) Tri-Deck custom built superyacht with aluminum hull and superstructure. Representing quintessential Trinity Yachts design, naval architecture and exterior styling, Tsumat is the stuff dreams are made of for her owner, a repeat Trinity customer whose family has enjoyed yachting for many years. From her layout which includes six staterooms and a tender garage—allowing for an oversized sundeck compete with workout stations and ample relaxation options—Tsumat is intended to provide every amenity for her active owner family and their guests.

A proper christening for yet another spectacular Trinity megayacht.

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 maneuvers easily in shallow-water destinations. Simultaneously, Tsumat’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. Her inspired interior design—created by J. C. Espinosa of Espinosa, Inc. and Ramon Alonso of Museotec with dynamic input from her owners—provides modern appointments to Tsumat’s exceptional use of space.

A six stateroom all ensuite layout includes a full-width main deck owner’s king master suite with an adjacent owner’s study and walk up ensuite His and Her heads. There is room enough for seating, ample storage and a 42” plasma TV. Four guest staterooms—two queen and two twin for children and their friends—are on the lower deck amidships. A fifth queen guest stateroom features breathtaking views from the pilothouse deck.

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 elegant cuisine; and, a full beam al fresco lounge.

Tsumat’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. 

All Trinity custom superyachts represent a decidedly unique collaboration between owner and builder, engineering team and designers, captain, crew, family and friends. At launch—and upon final delivery in 2012—Tsumat exemplifies the very nature of what it means to own a Trinity Yacht:  the ability to have a yacht custom built for the particular needs and uniqueness of the individual.

Yacht Spotting and New Launches

242’ (73.8m) Six-Deck Project, New Horizon, Splashes at
Trinity Yachts

Largest American Built Superyacht to Launch in 2011

Trinity Yachts is pleased to announce that its largest custom superyacht to date—and the largest American built yacht in 2011—the 242’ (73.8m) six-deck, full displacement steel hull, New Horizon, launched in mid November 2011. The epitome of the design, naval architecture and engineering that Trinity Yachts incorporates in each meticulously custom superyacht built, New Horizon caps a remarkable year for the U.S. builder. Trinity remains the top U.S. builder with the 2011 launches of New Horizon, Lady Linda, Areti and the deliveries of Carpe Diem and Falcon.

With an interior artfully designed by Evan Marshall, New Horizon’s massive size in lineal feet, expansive 40’9” (12.4m) beam and six-deck volume allows her to, by nature, represent the very finest aspects of superyachting. Her main deck features a luxurious aft entertaining area, huge salon and dining area, full width master stateroom, office, study, His and Hers en suite with wardrobes. Her lower deck includes six guest staterooms all en suite, eight crew cabins plus captain’s cabin also en suite, and a vast lazarette.

Deck life aboard New Horizon is unrivalled and easily accessible by elevator. The pilothouse deck includes twin davits for tenders, ample space for toys, a skylounge, an aft deck lounge with al fresco seating for 12 and twin side deck lounges; the observation deck with lounge is located above the pilothouse deck and features a gym, aft deck and hot tub; and, for those wishing a bird’s eye view of the sea, the upper deck offers unmatched visibility.

New Horizon, like all Trinity Yachts, represents the fundamental tenet of this world-renowned builder: that a custom superyacht is best approached collaboratively. Sold by Bob Cury of RJC Yacht Sales for long-time repeat customers, the opportunity to bring to life a superlative yacht that is simultaneously the yard’s largest to date, is an engineering feat in six decks and meets with the exacting specifications of her owners, is a hallmark of Trinity Yachts’ boatbuilding prowess. New Horizon delivers in 2012.
