Trinity motor yacht Stay Salty finds new owner

15 March 2022• Written by Tom McGhie

The 49.07 metre tri-deck motor yacht Stay Salty, previously Hunter, has been sold by Kurt Bosshardt and Patrick Hopkins from Denison Yachting with Sean Doyle from Northrop & Johnson representing the buyer. 

Built in aluminium by US superyacht yard Trinity Yachts to ABS class, Stay Salty was delivered in 2008 as a tri-deck Trinity 161 model. Designed by Geoff Van Aller, her original interior is by Patrick Knowles and she underwent a complete interior refit in 2020 courtesy of Destry Darr Designs

The master suite is situated on the main deck and stretches across the full beam, with panoramic forward-facing windows, a private office, two settees, a king-size bed, and a full entertainment system with a 42-inch flat-screen television. Below, three double cabins have queen-sized beds and 26-inch flat-screen televisions, while a twin cabin has a Pullman berth and a 26-inch flat-screen television. All cabins have full en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for 10 crewmembers.

Immediately to port in the main saloon is a full wet bar with bar stools which can be connected to the outside bar on the aft deck when the window between the two bars is lowered. The décor contrasts subtle stonework with neutral, textured carpets and there is comfortable seating plus an entertainment centre including a television screen on a rise and fall mechanism in the cabinet dividing the lounge and dining areas. 

As the inside formal dining table was replaced by a roulette wheel in a recent fit, all dining aboard the yacht takes place either in the skylounge above, or at the al fresco table on the skylounge deck aft.

The skylounge is suitably comfortable with plush settees and chairs to port offering excellent views of the new 70-inch flat-screen television mounted on the forward bulkhead. Further aft to port is a games table, while to starboard is a full bar with bar stools.

In 2015 she received a new paint job and her main engines were overhauled. Twin 2,250hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 18 knots and she is fitted with zero-speed stabilisers.

Stay Salty was asking $17,950,000.
