“An elite builder of custom superyachts in the United States, Trinity Yachts is located on the Gulf Coast with manufacturing facilities in Gulfport, Mississippi, and New Orleans, Louisiana. Created in 1988 by John Dane (former CEO of Halter Marine) and marketing genius Billy Smith, Trinity eventually brought on Felix Sabates (Victory Lane Enterprises) to complete the partnership. Constructing in steel and aluminum, up to 330 feet long, Trinity continues its tradition of exquisite craftsmanship, state-of-the-art construction and engineering techniques, and technology employed from Haltar’s ultra-fast, ultra-quiet military vessels. Trinity’s hallmarks include: beautiful exterior styling, spacious interiors, efficient sound reduction systems, seaworthiness, and powerful performance capabilities (they’re fast in relation to their size).
The first of the Trinity Legend Series motoryachts launched in 1997 with “Magic” (ex-“Noble House”), a 150-foot, tri-deck. She was joined by “Marsha Kay” in 1998, a 118-foot raised pilothouse. Other notable launches include the 156-foot motoryacht “Themis,” the 126-foot sportfishing motoryacht “Marlena,” and the 184-foot Global Explorer Yacht “Pangaea” (ex-“Dream”).
Trinity has since produced superyachts beyond 161 feet in length and currently has several under production, including “New Horizon,” a quad-deck motoryacht housing 242-feet of custom luxury afloat (Trinity’s largest to date). “New Horizon” was the largest megayacht manufactured on American soil to launch in 2011. With a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, she has a gym on the wheelhouse deck, an ample library/study off the entry to the full-beam master suite forward on the main deck. Tenders stowed up on deck free the transom for lounging. She boasts a 6,000 nautical mile range at 13 knots, and delivery is set for this year.
Trinity’s Sport Yacht Series (50 M, 55 M, and 63 M) was born from an inquiry from a potential buyer who wanted a luxurious dayboat that can cover a lot of ground quickly. Each design is offered in a variety of color combinations. The Trinity 50 M Sport Yacht (164 feet) has a hardtop partially shading a forward bridge. The Trinity 55 M Sport Yacht (180 feet) trades the hardtop for a stylish radar arch centered on the bi-level flying bridge. The Trinity 63 M Sport Yacht (206 feet) showcases a large sunpad on the foredeck, a vast swim platform, and accommodations for up to 18 guests in nine staterooms.”
