Paul Bury of Bury Design has send us details about his latest project, the Triton95. The Triton 95 is a 28.95 metre support vessel commissioned by well known US submarine builder Triton Submarines. Conceived along a different route to most offshore cruising powerboats, her brief was simple: a robust, efficient vessel to carry a crew and a Triton 3300/2 submarine around the world.
Influenced by extensive experience in sailing boat design this design evolved into a long, lean, streamlined vessel, heavily orientated towards efficiency and sea-keeping ability. The narrow hull form coupled with a long water line length gives exceptional performance figures with extremely low power requirements and ocean spanning range. The hull geometry and the gyroscopic stabilisation system combine to provide an incomparable ride quality and safety in even extreme conditions.
This vessel is designed specifically to carry and support a Triton 3300/2 personal submarine, which is stowed in a separate compartment aft of the machinery area, accessible through large deck hatches as well as through personnel hatches fore and aft. The submarine is launched using twin, hydraulically actuated rotating arms.
The vessel is suited for extended period cruising with 2 or 3 couples with or without crew. The main two guest cabins are located centrally for comfort at sea and both feature ensuites.
