At 60.40 metre, Trinity’s newest superyacht, Areti launched last week as the longest aluminium yacht to date from the renowned American boatbuilder. With considerable fanfare, owner’s representative, Captain Ted Kavalieros and Billy Smith met on board to celebrate her move from land to water; final outfitting will be completed in coming months with her delivery date scheduled for early summer 2011.
This stunning yacht, the newest Areti in her owner’s succession of so-named yachts, is custom designed and articulates Trinity’s acclaimed naval architectural and exterior styling. A critical specification was for versatility as Areti will enjoy the waters of the Bahamas and the Mediterranean equally. To meet this challenge, Trinity’s aluminium construction allows the yacht to reduce draft to less than 2.4 metre, making her one of the largest yachts in the world capable of accessing the myriad Bahamian islands and harbours her owner so enjoys.
Her interior is designed by Patrick Knowles Designs. From her full beam elevated master suite, with two ensuite master heads located a level down via sweeping staircases, featuring full forward panoramic views and six guest staterooms to her large sky lounge and flybridge with custom hot tub, Areti offers maximum appreciation of oceans and ports.
Her interior features mahogany wood veneered panels with cherry burl inlays, the beautiful Pacific Northwest Madrone (with pink-orange burl accents) and redwood while her mosaic of marbles (including onyx and granite) are arranged in a stunning combination of colours and tones in impressive inlay patterns. Like all Patrick Knowles interiors, Areti is at once a plush place of comfort and a most visually stunning environment.
Including a two-person elevator with access for all decks, Areti accommodates a total of 13 in seven staterooms. For her active owner and guests, she houses a gymnasium, steam room and sauna, change rooms and a full head. She’s also well equipped for full enjoyment of sea and surf. Waverunners, water toys, bicycle storage, slings, tie downs, covers, cradles, a rescue tender with CISR-approved equipment and even a bow davit for temporary toy storage allow for full days in port.
Operation of the yacht is also well conceived with a total of nine cabins for 18 crew and a galley with large walk-in refrigerator and freezer. Ship’s systems incorporate the best technological advances in the marketplace today and a cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles allows for extended uninterrupted voyaging.
