As one of the largest vessels ever delivered by Trinity Yachts in Mississippi, the 58.2-metre Carpe Diem was also designed by the shipyard’s in-house engineering team. She was launched in 2011 and has become a highly popular charter yacht in her size range today. Trinity worked together with designer Carol Williamson on the interior of the project which can accommodate up to 12 guests and 10 crew members across three decks.
The 63.5-metre Benetti yacht Moca was launched in 2015 as Chocolat, and was sold in 2019 as Waku to her current owner who renamed the vessel Moca. Moca features naval architecture and an exterior design by the Italian shipyard and an interior by FM Architettura. With expansive deck spaces, Moca is laid out to accommodate up to 14 guests in seven cabins and up to 15 crew members. Powered by twin 1850hp MTU 12V4000M53 diesel engines and equipped with Zero Speed Stabilisers, Moca is able to cruise at 15 knots or a maximum cruising range of 4,750nm when travelling at 12 knots. Her top speed is 16 knots.
