This is hull T-052 and is the second and final hull project to be auctioned off in the last 90 days and this is the final Trinity from the original shipyard.
There is a recent yacht survey in the past 60 days available on request by a top surveyor who inspected the aluminum and the structure and included equipment.
Detailed photos are available.
The price includes hull and superstructure modules, 2- 130kw Northern lights generators (new), bow thruster, Quantum central hydraulic system, fins, (but missing rams), and a complete design and engineering package valued at $1.0 million.
This luxury five-stateroom Aluminum Motoryacht was constructed under ABS Classification and supervision at one of the top shipyards in North America. She is nearly 20% complete and available well below the actual cost invested to date and well below the recent appraisal and survey that is available upon request.
This is an opportunity for the right buyer or shipyard looking for an exciting project.

HERE IS THE UPSIDE TO THIS PROJECT
SAVING TIME AND MONEY –
When you look at the cost estimates to complete this yacht you’ll see savings in both time and money. We are getting estimates from qualified shipyards that would like to be selected to finish the project (USA, Greece, and Turkey). We believe the savings will be at least $10-$15 million less than starting from scratch based on what yachts in this size range are actually selling for on the open market today.
A RESPECTED GLOBAL BRAND –
If you are not familiar with the Trinity brand they have built over 60 megayachts over the past 30 years and you will find them cruising everywhere in the world. They have attracted owners from industry, sports, and even royalty, and over 60% of their clients at one point were a repeat owner which says a lot about how much fun the design and building process was at Trinity.
GLOBAL RESALE & CHARTER –
Wherever you look up the Trinity brand on the internet (Google, YouTube, Multiple Listing Systems) you will find Trinity yachts. They are offered for sale by the best brokers in the world and you will see sisterships successfully chartering in every major port, and most important for the buyer, you will see a solid resale history of Trinity yachts in both the North American and European markets.
COMPANY HISTORY BROCHURE -
If you are not familiar with the company you can learn a lot more about the history of Trinity in the attached brochure which even includes their connection to W.W. II when they took over the J.C. Higgins factory in New Orleans. General Eisenhower once made the observation the Higgins boats were critical to winning the war!
A TRULY CUSTOM DESIGN -
All Trinity Yachts were fully custom-designed projects. For this yacht, we have several floorplan arrangements available. This is not like some of the well-known production brands you’ve heard of where there are a dozen or more identical yachts out there on the high seas. When you own a Trinity you own a signature piece, not another “me too” yacht.
YES, YOU CAN MAKE CHANGES –
The construction is still at a point when you can make some changes depending on personal preference. The designer Geoff Van Aller can tell you what changes you can make and still preserve the full design and engineering package included in this offering.
STABILITY & PERFORMANCE –
This yacht has a projected top speed of 18.7 knots if you use 2,250 hp Cat 3512B engines based on the proven design, and you will see Trinity sisterships of similar length that confirm it. In achieving that speed the design team managed to also deliver a hull shape that is comfortable in all sea conditions which is not always the case with fast yachts in this size range. Even just looking at the profile you can see the yacht is well balanced in the design of the upper structure which plays a big role in stability in heavy seas. Some of those “far out” designs you see in all the magazines today need special handling when the seas begin to build.
SPACIOUS CONTEMPORARY DESIGN –
We have recommended the five-stateroom floorplan attached to this because it works well for family use but is also highly desirable in the world of charter yachts. If you go with that layout then all of the engineering drawings are completed. The design can obviously be modified for an additional engineering charge.
HERE’S WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW
FULL DOCUMENTATION OF THE PROJECT
We have full documentation for this project and where it stands at the moment. This is not some abandoned yacht in the back of some boatyard with no one to help. The yacht has been securely and properly maintained from the moment that production stopped.
RECENT INSPECTION OF THE YACHT
Since the yachts have been stored on land for years, one of the questions we have been asked is what about the condition of the aluminum and the welds. The yacht was inspected in February 2023 by Fort Lauderdale-based world Yacht Survey / Pliske Marine, Inc. inspector (and qualified surveyor) who is available to confirm that this yacht is ready to go back into production and there are no issues with the aluminum.
SUPPORT TEAM OPTIONS
One of the concerns people have when taking over any yacht project like this that has been shut down for years is who do I get to help me get the yacht finished including design work and the actual construction? We have the right answers and we have the right people - Designers, engineers, and project managers.
DESIGN & ENGINEERING –
You’ll be glad to know that the original team that designed this particular yacht and the other Trinities is available to help complete the remaining drawings if you want to change the design. If you like this exact layout all the engineering is complete. Everyone who was involved in this yacht from the CEO on down wants to see this yacht successfully completed and be part of the history of Trinity. Whatever help you need you’ll find the right people are available to help you get this boat back into production as fast as possible regardless of where you decide to send the yacht for completion.
INTERIOR DESIGNER –
Some of the best interior design firms in the world have worked on Trinity yachts over the years and they would all be happy to talk to you about completing the project. In addition, depending on the location of the yard that will be completing the yacht, they may have some design firms they work closely with that you might want to consider.
The strongest interest and the best pricing that we received in bidding out a sistership hull T-056 all came from overseas yards and we will be happy to share that information with you. We can present you with information on the yards that have expressed interest so far in completing the yacht. You’re talking about a project in the $15-$20 million range so this is a huge opportunity for the right facility. The fact that the yacht can go back into production as soon as it arrives makes it even more desirable for the right yard.
The strongest interest we had when bidding out a sistership hull T-056 came from shipyards in Turkey and Greece.
We also have updated shipping costs for transporting the yacht to the yards that are currently interested.
The company originally started in the commercial craft segment and when there was a major slowdown in that industry they had hundreds of highly skilled aluminum workers, designers, and engineers about to be unemployed. They decided to shift gears and go into the yacht-building industry in 1988 and created the Trinity brand. After decades of success, the custom yacht-building industry faced a major slowdown and so the company shifted back to commercial and military contracts and was doing $75,000,000 a year in that part of the marine industry when the company was sold in 2015 by the founders.
This yacht is stored in Gulfport, Mississippi. It is secure and checked regularly. The yacht can remain in its current location while you make the arrangements for completion.
