A Triple Play for Trinity

  • Danielle Cutler Wallin

Louisiana-based Trinity Yachts has unveiled the 142-foot Big Zip, the 164-foot Imagine, and the 190-foot Mi Sueño. Big Zip and Imagine emerged out of the builder’s New Orleans yard, and Mi Sueño came from the company’s Gulfport, Mississippi, location.

Big Zip is a sister ship to Big City, which launched in 2009. Trinity’s naval architect Geoff Van Aller designed both Big Zip and Imagine, each of which is built in aluminum. Evan Marshall designed Big Zip’s interior, and Sylvie Charest created Imagine’s. Both Big Zip and Imagine sleep 10 guests in five staterooms. Big Zip rides on two Caterpillar C32Es with 1,825 hp each, and Imagine sports two 2,250 hp Caterpillar 3512Bs. Imagine tops out at 20 knots and cruises at 18, with a 4,000 nautical mile range. Both yachts are ABS classed and MCA compliant. Imagine will be delivered to a repeat client this month, and Big Zip is scheduled for June delivery.

Also built in aluminum, the 190-foot Mi Sueño features a Patrick Knowles interior and accommodates 14 guests in seven staterooms. All three of its decks can be accessed via elevator. Space on the flybridge makes way for touch-and-go helicopter operations. A 5,000-pound davit launches tenders from the garage, and a bow davit and flybridge davit take care of the rescue tender and water toys. Two Caterpillar 3516 HD engines give Mi Sueño a maximum speed of 20 knots and a 17-knot cruise speed, and the vessel’s range is 4,000 nautical miles at 10 knots. The MCA-compliant and ABS-classed Mi Sueño is being delivered this month. (228.276.1000, www.trinityyachts.com)
