Trident

    Built at Feadship’s Royal Van Lent Shipyard in Holland, the 214-foot Trident (954.761.1830, www.feadship.com; available for charter through Feadship Charter, 954.761.1830, www.feadshipcharter.com) is the chameleon of the charter world. "Trident has the ability to adapt itself to the people on board and the occasion rather than the other way around," says Francois van Well, former president of Feadship America. "She never feels out of place, whether you are on a casual family holiday or hosting a state dinner."

    Trident’s rich and warm interiors, by Donald Starkey Designs, anchor the inviting atmosphere on board, where as many as 12 guests stay in seven staterooms while being served by a crew of 14. Passengers can enjoy casual meals aft, while more formal affairs take place in the main dining room, which the crew accesses via hidden passages that connect to the galley.

    For guests who want to hide out from the sun, Trident’s top deck features a retractable canopy and several chaise lounges. The yacht, which launched in May 2009 and was delivered in August, also offers myriad ways to embrace the outdoors, with tenders and toys that include a 22-foot Chris-Craft Corsair, a 22-foot Chris-Craft Launch bowrider, a 14-foot sailboat, a Yamaha SuperJet personal watercraft, and two kayaks.
