Blind Date

Owners of Trinity Yachts’ Blind Date met, appropriately enough, on 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, which launched in summer 2009, 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. The owners prescribed an interior theme of “Live, Laugh, Love,” a motif of whimsical photos paired with Pucci prints to create a playful ambience, while novel textures and finishes, including one the owners call “fostrich” (faux ostrich), to add depth and personality. Tenders and toys include an 18-foot Nautica inflatable boat, two Sea-Doo personal watercraft, and snorkeling gear.
