Trinity Yachts signs contract for 36m superyacht
Trinity Yachts, LLC has announced a new construction contract for a high speed, 36.60 metre raised pilothouse motor yacht for an experienced American yachtsman. The owner, a patriot at heart, is hopeful that the design and performance of this superyacht will inspire other American yachtsmen to step forward and place orders now so that manufacturing jobs can be kept in the United States during these difficult times for the yachting industry.
This newest Trinity will have sleek, contemporary exterior styling and will be classed by ABS with a top speed of 24 knots; her range will exceed 2,500 miles at 10 knots.
With normal cruising grounds being the East Coast of the United States as well as the Bahamas, the superyacht’s draft is being specifically designed to be 5’5” (1.67m) in half-load condition. As the owner is also a racing enthusiast, the port-specific draft design will allow the vessel to berth in Daytona Beach, Florida when the owner is attending events at the Daytona International Speedway.
The engine room will house two MTU 16v2000 main engines rated at 2,600 hp each, driving 5-bladed propellers via 5” propeller shafts and ZF gearboxes. The hull design will be a modification and a further refinement of the 7.92 metre beam hull design that Trinity has used successfully on four previous yachts.
