Built for exploration and adventure, TRITON, a 163-foot massive expedition yacht with full ABS classification, features a 31-foot 8-inch beam and 9-foot draft. Powered by Twin Caterpillar 3508 engines, the yacht has a 6,000-nautical-mile range at 13 knots. The Delta Design Group used their years of experience in composite construction to develop an advanced hull laminate schedule utilizing carbon fiber for extra strength and durability. To provide the owner the ultimate in sound and vibration control, the engines were soft-mounted. In addition to a zero-speed stabilizer system, all her interior spaces are floating.
The interior, also designed by the Delta Design Group, features a full-width master stateroom forward on the main deck with sitting room, library, office, his/her heads and expansive closet space. Hardwood floors accent the main salon and dining area, and an elevator transports guests from the lower deck to the flybridge. Brilliant features abound, including a large walk-in refrigerator and freezer, a spacious gym aft of the engine room, and ingenious televisions that flip down from the ceiling. Also of note, she houses an underwater camera in the bulbous bow and underwater lights at the stern to provide guests front-row seats for observing the ocean’s mysteries.
TRITON is equipped with a sophisticated dive compressor with Nitrox and Tri-Mix capability, and a dive platform at the transom for ease of entry and exit from the water. A state-of-the-art sonar and bottom-mapping system by Simrad photographs the bottom of the ocean beneath the yacht and stores the information as 3-D maps ideal for pinpointing wrecks or reefs for diving.
On the main deck, two 24-foot tenders are stowed aft, deployed with overhead gantry cranes. The upper deck is equipped with an additional three-ton capacity knuckle-boom crane to lift tenders or load heavy items onboard in port, as well as a helicopter-landing pad. The flybridge features a hot tub for relaxing, and one of two elevators takes guests safely to the crow’s nest for spotting fish. All outdoor areas were designed with ample room for dining and entertaining. With four decks of living and entertaining areas, this yacht has all the accoutrements necessary for worldwide cruising, deep-sea fishing, reef-diving—and high seas enjoyment—in the world’s most remote and exotic locales.
