Trinity’s newest superyacht, the 19-ft tri-deck motoryacht Carpe Diem, has delivered to her owner, a repeat Trinity client. Featuring a 33-ft beam — the second hull in the new series — Carpe Diem’s exterior styling represents a new design for the acclaimed builder, one which keeps the promise Trinity delivers to all clients: to build a yacht as specified by her owner.
From her Trinity-designed naval architecture and styling and her interior design by Carol Williamson & Associates (CW+A) — to her large sky lounge and swim platform and customized “tenders and toys” for outdoors enjoyment, Carpe Diem is the embodiment of both flexibility and ability to access exotic destinations. With a cruising speed averaging 18.5 knots, she reaches destinations quickly. Her 8-ft draft enables her to access shallow water settings more readily than yachts of a similar length and width.
Carpe Diem features a main deck full-beam king master suite with walk-in closet, sofa and arm chairs, and ensuite his shower/her Jacuzzi and shower. Guests luxuriate in the full-width aft king VIP lower deck stateroom with four additional staterooms. For flexibility the two forward guest staterooms are easily converted to an additional full-width forward king VIP; if used as twins, one easily converts to a gym. Crew quarters provide direct access to guest staterooms and a private crew stairway leads to the galley and the pilothouse level. With dumbwaiter, pantry and galley designed specifically for ease of use by crew, Carpe Diem’s owner and guests are treated to impeccable, seamless service.
Carol Williamson’s touch is evident throughout the interior, is rich with the masculinity of hand-wrought hard woods and urbane with the femininity of light soft goods and stylish accents. While Carpe Diem ‘fully incorporates the careful play of architecture, light and complex sophisticated color’ CW+A is widely recognized for, she also boasts tremendous living space featuring a magnificent main salon, expansive dining salon, main aft deck with wet bar and air conditioning, dual staircase to her extended swim platform and passerelle—which even includes modular furniture—a full-width sky lounge, upper aft deck, Portuguese bridge and sun deck.
All-teak decks, stainless steel and plenty of alfresco relaxation and dining spaces are paired brilliantly with an interior color scheme perfectly complemented with striking black and white photography and priceless art throughout. Technology for owner and guests features the most relevant products available today with Kaleidescape, WiFi, iPod docking and multi-system surround sound throughout.
For day excursions, Carpe Diem comes fully equipped for elaborate beach outings and port visits. With three custom tenders, beach landing craft and even a tent with draw curtains, parties on the beach are a regular pastime. Four waverunners and SCUBA gear are available and two hidden life rafts (above her sun deck) are standard.
Carpe Diem accommodates an owner’s party of twelve (12) in six (6) staterooms and twelve (12) crew in six (6) cabins. She is also available for charter.
