One of the most exciting yachts to bring to market, NO BAD IDEAS represents an incredible opportunity to purchase the most thoroughly updated Trinity in existence. Following an extensive 2-year, $20 million refit where every detail was carefully assessed and either replaced or renewed, this yacht now stands as a turn-key masterpiece awaiting its next owner.

With a thoughtfully designed layout, NO BAD IDEAS comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests across 6 staterooms. This includes an on-deck master suite, an on-deck VIP cabin, and four king staterooms below deck, two of which can be converted into twin accommodations.

Renowned for its opulent interiors, A La Mer tastefully redesigned NO BAD IDEAS with the focus extended to the exterior spaces of the yacht as well. From the expansive seating area forward of the bridge featuring a fire pit, to the revamped flybridge equipped with a spacious bar and a ten-person jacuzzi, to the 10-foot extension on the stern that creates a remarkable water-level lounging space complete with a second ten-person jacuzzi.

When considering its charter potential, NO BAD IDEAS emerges as a standout option in its size range, offering a peerless platform for unforgettable experiences. The owner is open to selling a 50% ownership share to potential buyers.

Moving forward through the automatic sliding doors into the main salon you are immediately made aware of the extent of the interior refit completed aboard NO BAD IDEAS. A large L-shaped couch is to port, with four occasional chairs, as well as a large TV to starboard. The aft floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as the new, light interior decor, make this a very inviting room.


Forward in the Main Salon is the formal dining for 12 guests. Continuing down the starboard corridor, you come to the extremely custom on-deck VIP stateroom, complete with a large ensuite bathroom, this room was built to easily conform to a spa room, with a custom bed that transforms into a massage table. Moving forward you find the 400-bottle glass wine cellar located under the stairs leading to the skylounge and a day head located on the starboard side before the master stateroom entrance.   

Further forward is the on-deck master which features a desk, sitting area, sofas both port and starboard, and an 85” TV. Two large walk-in closets forward, and a massive walkthrough ensuite bathroom aft with shower, tub, dual vanities, and custom stonework throughout. 


Down a set of curved stairs, you walk into the lower foyer with four guest staterooms: Two large VIPs feature king beds and ensuite bathrooms with dual vanities. Two large, ensuite king rooms which can easily be converted to twins if desired. 


The Skylounge on the bridge deck is the perfect entertainment and relaxation area. It features a full-service bar, an 85” TV, four bar stools, an L-shaped sofa, and 3 club chairs. A baby grand player-piano and arcade system round out this incredible room.

The bridge deck aft is accessed by automatic sliding doors from the Skylounge and features protected and shaded seating, as well as a dining table for 12 guests. Along with an expansive settee that wraps the entire aft section of the bridge deck. Forward of the pilothouse on the Portuguese deck features custom seating for 12, surrounding a gas fire pit. Along with 2 sunbeds that flank the walkway to the bow where 2 more Seadoo Jetskis are stowed while underway.  


The expansive sun deck includes a 10-person Jacuzzi forward with lounging pads on either side. Two chaise loungers and a dining table for 12 are to starboard, with a massive custom bar featuring 6 teak barstools to port. Behind the fully stocked wet bar is a large Sunbright TV, BBQ, and Green Egg built-in.
