WHY BUY THIS YACHT?
Savings in Time & Money – When you look at the cost estimates we have received in recent months to complete this yacht you’ll see savings in both time and money. It is approximately 40% complete already, and we have received bids from qualified yards in the US, Greece, and Turkey.
Properly managed, this project should be completed for under $25 million including purchasing the yacht, and based on recent sales, that price should be $10 million or more below the current price for new and late model yachts in this size range with similar engines and equipment.
The Trinity Brand – If you are not familiar with the Trinity brand they have built over 60 totally custom megayachts over the past 20 years and you will find them cruising around the world. Trinity attracted owners from industry, sports, and even royalty, and over 60% of their clients at one point were repeat owners which says a lot about how much fun the design and building process was at Trinity. You can learn a lot more about the history of Trinity and see a selection of completed yachts in the attached brochure.
Global Resale & Charter Market – Wherever you look up the Trinity brand on the internet (Google, YouTube, Multiple Listing Systems) you will find Trinity yachts showcased. They are offered for sale by the best brokers in the world and you will see sisterships successfully chartering at premium prices in every major port, and most important for any potential buyer, you will see a solid resale history of Trinity yachts in both the North American and in European markets.
Modern Styling – When you look at the exterior styling in the drawings and the renderings for this yacht it is current in today’s world and there is nothing dated about it. The construction is still at a point when you can make some changes depending on personal preference.
Speed and Performance – This yacht has a projected top speed of 24 knots based on the proven design, and you will see Trinity sisterships of similar length that confirm it. In achieving that speed the design team managed to also deliver a hull shape that is comfortable in all sea conditions which is not always the case with fast yachts in this size range.
Contemporary Interior Design – While we have recommended the six stateroom floorplan that is included in this listing because of what we know about the resale market, you still have time to customize and make key changes for your particular needs.

One of the concerns people have when taking over any yacht project like this that has been shut down is who do I get to help me get the yacht finished including design work and the actual construction? We have the right answers.
Design and Engineering – You’ll be glad to know that the original team that designed this particular yacht and the other Trinity’s as well is available to help complete the remaining drawings. Everyone who was involved in this yacht from the CEO on down wants to see this yacht successfully completed and be part of the history of Trinity. We can provide whatever help you need to find the right people to get this boat back into production as fast as possible regardless of where you decide to send the yacht for completion.
Interior Designer – Some of the best interior design firms in the world have worked on Trinity yachts over the years and they will take the time to create any drawings needed to complete the yacht.
Completion Options - We have received bid proposals from five qualified shipyards that are interested in making a final presentation to a buyer and we have focused on yards with proven experience in this size range that are located in areas that have the key suppliers needed to make it all happen. The yards are located in the US, Greece, and Turkey. You’re talking about a project in the $15-20 million range so this is a huge opportunity in the refit market for the right facility. The fact that the yacht can go back into production as soon as it arrives makes it even more desirable for the right yard.
The yacht is in storage in Gulfport, Mississippi. It is secure and checked regularly. The MTU engines are serviced and under full new warranty coverage that begins when the yacht is completed. The yacht can remain in its current location as long as necessary for you to make the arrangements for completion.
The seller’s only request is that we take the time to make sure any offers received are from qualified applicants who meet the three obvious criteria – they have the money to complete the project properly, they understand the completion process, and they have a plan to make it a success.
The last thing we want is to see someone get in over their head. The owner is prepared to do everything possible on his end to make this a success for everyone involved.
One thing we can assure you, you won’t find yourself standing alone wondering how you got into this project. Some amazing people are on standby to help you!
