“The owner is hopeful that the design and performance of this yacht will inspire other American yachtsmen to step forward and place orders now so that manufacturing jobs can be kept in the United States during these difficult times for the yachting industry,” the company said in a statement.

This newest Trinity will have a contemporary exterior and will be classed by ABS with a top speed of 24 knots; its range will exceed 2,500 miles at 10 knots.

With the normal cruising grounds being the U.S. East Coast and the Bahamas, the yacht’s draft is being designed to be 5 feet, 5 inches in half-load condition. The owner also is a racing enthusiast, and the port-specific draft design will allow the vessel to berth in Daytona Beach, Fla., when the owner is attending events at Daytona International Speedway.
