Trinity motor yacht Carpe Diem II sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in aluminium by US yard Trinity Yachts, Carpe Diem II was delivered in 2002 and benefitted from a $1.5 million refit in 2015, along with several upgrades since. Neutral furnishings and rich mahogany joinery by Carol Williamson offer generous accommodation for up to 11 guests in five cabins. These include a full-beam master suite on the main deck and a full-beam convertible VIP suite on the lower deck, featuring a connected lounge area that can become a twin cabin. All guest cabins have entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities.
The main saloon is well-appointed and fastidiously decorated with sleek woods and sumptuous, inviting upholstery, while the exterior spaces are perfect for al fresco parties and gentle relaxation in the sun. The expansive sundeck is finished with marble features, stainless steel furniture and fixtures, a generous bar, and a forward situated Jacuzzi that provides excellent views over the water. This deck is also complemented by outdoor seating areas on the main deck and both fore and aft of the bridge deck.
Twin 2,250hp Caterpillar diesel engines allow a cruising speed of 16 knots, topping out at 20 knots.
Carpe Diem II was asking $12,900,000.
