Trinity's longest aluminum yacht to date - the 198-foot trideck motoryacht Areti - launched last week in Gulfport, Miss.


The owner's representative, Capt. Ted Kavalieros, and Billy Smith met on board to celebrate the boat's move from land to water; final outfitting will be completed in the coming months. The delivery date will be in the early summer.

The yacht - the newest Areti in the owner's succession of so-named yachts - is custom-designed. 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 aluminum construction allows the yacht to reduce draft to less than 8 feet, making it one of the largest yachts in the world capable of accessing the Bahamian islands and harbors that the owner enjoys, according to the builders.

The interior is designed by Patrick Knowles Designs and it features two en suite master heads one level down via sweeping staircases, a large sky lounge and flybridge with a custom hot tub, and a two-person elevator with access for all decks.

Areti accommodates 13 people in seven staterooms. It has a gymnasium, steam room and sauna, change rooms and a full head. It also has Waverunners, water toys, bicycle storage, slings, tie-downs, covers, cradles and a rescue tender.
