Famed American Yard Launches Luxury Motor Yacht Tsumat

Posted on

American superyacht builder, Trinity Yachts has launched their first yacht of 2012, the 49.90 meter motor yacht TSUMAT.  The yacht features an interior by Dutch designer René van der Velden.

Similar in looks to Trinity yacht charter stalwart, motor yacht WHEELS, M/Y TSUMAT offers accommodations for 10 to 12 guests.  The master stateroom is positioned on the main deck, with 4 guests cabins located on the lower deck, and a convertible sixth cabin on the bridge deck.
The yacht is powered by twin 2250 hp Caterpillar 3512B engines. She features a signature oversized Trinity swim platform, that will be large enough to store two waverunners. Up on the Sun Deck, those ten or twelve guests can all fit into the large Jacuzzi tub that is flanked by comfortable sun pads and an adjoining bar. Aft of the hot tub there is plenty of space for furniture.
Below on the bridge deck, there is a sky lounge with bar and plenty of seating for entertainment. Down on the main deck, there is symmetrically-styled seating in the main saloon. Forward of this area is the formal dining room providing seating for up to twelve. 
Other yachts launched by this builder and currently available for hire include motoryacht CARPE DIEM, motor yacht SKYFALL, and the yacht MINE GAMES featuring a mini submarine.
Fans of the Trinity line of luxury yachts are hopeful to see this new yacht enter the charter market by summer, 2012.

Posted on

Whoo hoo!  The yacht’s representative contacted us to announce newly reduced rates for the popular 191 foot motor yacht CARPE DIEM for  the remainder of the spring in the Bahamas.  Her weekly rate has been reduced from $395,000 per week to $375,000 per week.

Additionally, the yacht is now accepting advanced reservations for the summer in the Med.

Motoryacht Carpe Diem underway - facing right

The 191′ (58.23 meter) Trinity yacht CARPE DIEM is well known and instantly recognizable in the Bahamas.  Captain Ryan Butterwick and his crew of 11 have been offering Bahamas yacht charter vacations to affluent travelers for the past three seasons.  Most yachts of this size are based further south in the Caribbean during the winter – in St. Martin and St Barts.  Captain Butterwick and the yacht’s owner saw an opportunity to be one of the very few large private yacht charter vessels to choose the Bahamas as their home port for the winter and spring.



The representative describes the yacht as,

“…an objet d’art all her own. Her signature interior by Carol Williamson and Associates simultaneously creates a sense of both drama and balance. There is a marvelous display of juxtaposition of design elements, joining opposing materials of Madagascar ebony wood with white onyx stone, varying textures of velvet, satin, and embossed Paltrona Frau leather. Showcased throughout the yacht are vintage fashion photographs, art deco antiques, and lavish furnishings.”


Offering accommodations for 12 guests, the acclaimed charter yacht was a finalist for 2012 World Superyacht Awards for Best Tri-Deck Semi-Displacement Yacht, and the 2012 Showboats Design Awards for Best Interior Design.
