Blind Date

    The owners of Trinity Yachts’ 161-foot Blind Date (228.?276.1000, www.trinityyachts.com; available for charter through Peter Insull, +33.493.34.22.42, www.insull.com) met on, yes, a blind date 20 years ago. After chartering yachts for 10 years, the couple knew exactly what they wanted in a boat, including a wide-open sundeck for sunning and lounging. To accommodate such a space, Trinity designed Blind Date so that tenders are stored aft of the salon on the main deck, rather than on the sundeck, and lowered into the water via a gantry-crane system. This setup allows for a sprawling sundeck, which, as envisioned, is the place to be on board, with a large hot tub and plenty of room for entertaining.

    For Blind Date’s Patrick Knowles–designed interiors, the owners prescribed a theme of "Live, Laugh, Love," a motif that is not only spelled out in decorative letters in the main salon, but also readily apparent throughout the yacht. Whimsical photos pair with Pucci prints to create a playful ambience, while novel textures and finishes, including one the owners call "fostrich" (faux ostrich), add depth and personality.

    Blind Date, which launched last summer, accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms and has space for 10 crew. Tenders and toys include an 18-foot Nautica inflatable boat, two Sea-Doo personal watercraft, and snorkeling gear.
