New 36m raised pilothouse superyacht ordered at Trinity Yachts
by Raphael Montigneaux
May 2011 continues to be a good month for new orders, the latest one being a 36.60m motor yacht ordered at Trinity Yachts. The American yard announces this new contract has been signed by a repeat and experienced client.
ABS classed, this raised pilothouse yacht is entirely built in aluminium. The naval architecture and the exterior design come from the in-house team, while the interior designer is not known for the moment. The layout is classical for a raised pilothouse, a large galley being forward on the main deck with guest accommodation on the lower deck. A total of nine guests will be hosted in four staterooms: a full-beam master suite, two doubles and a twin cabin plus a Pullman berth.
This US client is a racing enthusiast and his yacht will mainly cruise between the Bahamas and Daytona Beach. He has stipulated a yacht with a shallow draft of 1.67m, and the possibility to reach 24 knots thanks to twin 2,600hp MTU engines. The range is also extensive at 2,500 nautical miles at 10 knots thanks to 36,000 litres of fuel.
The Trinity 120 RPH will be delivered in 2013.
