TrumpingImage_web.jpg

After a 35-year hiatus, the Trumpy name will soon grace the hull of a new motor yacht. Trumpy Yachts, now headed by former Alden Yachts executive Jim Ewing, is introducing the Trumpy 63 Flush Deck Motor Yacht, to be built by Vicem Yachts, builder of cold-molded yachts. “The Trumpy 63 has been designed from original Trumpy drawings, but enhanced with modern yacht systems, equipment and accessories,” Ewing said. "From the laying of the keel to sea trial, the build will be overseen by Johan Trumpy, the grandson of company founder John Trumpy, so the 63 will be a Trumpy in every way.” With a base price just under $3m, the Trumpy 63 will be fully equipped when ready for sea trials. Delivery time will be approximately 12 months from order. Trumpy 63 Flush Deck Motor Yacht Specifications: Length o.a.    63 ft Length waterline    59 ft 4 inches Beam    16ft 3 inches Draft    4 ft 10 inches Displacement    35 tons Fuel capacity    800 gal Available with a galley up or down layout
