Yacht Spotting And New Launches

Trinity Yachts Delivers 164’ (50m) LADY SURA

Trinity Yachts is pleased to announce that following successful sea trials in December 2012, Lady Sura, its newest 164’ (49.9m) tri-deck custom-built superyacht with aluminum hull and superstructure, has been delivered to its new owners.

Features of this beautiful yacht include a full beam two-level master suite—to enjoy sleeping on the lower level and relaxing to the view on the upper—on the main deck with forward panoramic viewing windows. 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.

Lady_Sura,_Sea_Trial,_December_2012-1For optimal outdoor living and world-class views, LADY SURA’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.

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 her to frequent shallow water harbors and ports, making island hopping easy and accessible.

Lady Sura is every meter a Trinity and exemplifies what it means to build a custom yacht. So much so that over the course of her build, her owner asked Trinity for design modifications to the original contract, allowing her owner to take full advantage of the most up-to-date technologies available. More, this flexibility also illustrates the unique and winning collaboration between owner, builder and broker—as successfully managed by Jane Hardy of Peter Insull’s Yacht Marketing.
