Largest custom superyacht built by US builder Trinity Yachts to date, has been launched

The largest custom superyacht built by US superyacht builder Trinity Yachts to date, and the largest American built yacht this year has been launched.
The 73.8 metre New Horizon is a six-deck, full displacement steel hull took to the water in the middle of last month, and caps a good year for the U.S. builder.
Trinity Yachts remains the top U.S. builder with the 2011 launches of:
  • New Horizon
  • Lady Linda
  • Areti
and the deliveries of
  • Carpe Diem
  • Falcon
With an interior artfully designed by Evan Marshall, the new yachts 12.4 metre beam and six-deck volume allows her to, by nature, represent the finest aspects of superyachting.
Her main deck features an aft entertaining area, huge salon and dining area, full width master stateroom, office, study, His and Hers ensuite with wardrobes.
Her lower deck includes six guest staterooms all ensuite, eight crew cabins plus captain’s cabin also ensuite, and a sizeable lazarette.
Deck life aboard New Horizon is unrivalled and easily accessible by elevator.
The bridge deck includes twin davits for tenders, ample space for toys, a skylounge, an aft deck lounge with al fresco seating for 12 and twin side deck lounges; the observation deck with lounge is located above the pilothouse deck and features a gym, aft deck and hot tub; and, for those wishing a bird’s eye view of the sea, the upper deck offers unmatched visibility.
Sold by Bob Cury of RJC Yacht Sales for long-time repeat customers, the opportunity to bring to life a superlative yacht that is simultaneously the yard’s largest to date, is an engineering feat in six decks and meets with the exacting specifications of her owners.
