She will be operated by a crew of 12 for up to 12 guests. Her full-beam master suite is spread over two levels, with panoramic forward views, she features a hot tub on the flybridge and a sizeable tender garage, said Trinity Yachts.
She is powered by twin 1,684kW diesel Caterpillar engines, and is expected to reach a top speed of 19 knots with a range of 4,000nm. She is flagged in George Town, Cayman Islands, has a gross tonnage of 485, and a displacement of 313.

Lady Sura’s construction contract was originally signed in December 2007. At the owner’s request, the project was postponed for a year in August 2009 by mutual agreement between the owner and Trinity Yachts, and work was resumed in October 2010.
Less than a week ago the Trinity Yachts facilities in New Orleans were facing power cuts caused by recent Hurricane Isaac, but luckily there was little damage to the yard other than a dry dock cover, and Lady Sura will be delivered to her owner shortly.
