The end of 2012 saw Trinity Yachts hand over the 164-foot (49.9-meter) Lady Sura, which launched at its Gulfport, Mississippi yard in September.
The all-aluminum, ABS-classed megayacht boasts about 5,060 square feet (about 470 square meters) of interior space, outfitted with a combination of anigre, mahogany, and burl woods thanks to the work of Patrick Knowles Designs. The 28-foot (8.5-meter) beam is customary for a megayacht of this LOA, as is the four-guest-stateroom arrangement below decks. A fifth stateroom, a VIP, is situated just forward and to starboard of the skylounge, a nice departure.
Also a departure from many other megayachts, and even from other Trinity deliveries, is the two-level master suite. Yes, a few Trinitys have a split master forward on the main deck, but they all position the sleeping area on the upper level. Lady Sura instead has the bed on the main level and a seating area up. It’s a welcome change. After all, it’s nice to wake up to a view out the wrap-around windows, but isn’t it nicer to enjoy the view more than mere moments a day?
Expect Lady Sura to visit some skinny-water areas, given her 7’8” (2.4-meter) draft. The megayacht totes a tender, PWCs, and more watertoys for these and other destinations. Also expect the megayacht to put her reported 4,000-nautical-mile range at 11 knots to good use. Top speed is said to be about 19 knots, with power courtesy of twin 2,250-hp Caterpillars.
