Finish Line, hull T-058, is a custom designed raised pilothouse superyacht, with an aluminium hull and superstructure and her sleek naval architecture is by the in house team at Trinity Yachts. With her normal cruising grounds set to be around American’s east coast and the Bahamas, her draught has been designed to be 1.7m in half load condition, and the shallowness also allows her to access ports including Daytona Beach, Florida.
Accommodation for owners and guests consists of a full beam owners’ cabin, with his and hers en suite bathrooms, and three guest staterooms divided into two queen and one twin. Joanne Lockhart of YachtNext designed the interior. Three crew cabins are provided for a crew of five.
Power and ship systems are described as ‘state of the art’ and access to the lazarette and engine room is through the transom, but they can also be accessed from the main deck port side when Finish Line is at sea. Able to clock approximately 23 knots at top speed she is powered by two MTU 16V 2000 main engines, rated at 1,938kW each.
“Finish Line has been a deeply gratifying build for us,” said John Dane, president of Trinity. “Her owner, truly an American patriot, built the yacht here in the US both to realise the benefits of American craftsmen—whose skills are unsurpassed—and to create jobs. Over the life of the yacht, additional skilled labourer jobs will be created and will perpetuate the economic value that all yachts bring local communities,” he concluded.
Finish Line will be at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), which takes place between 31 October and 4 November.
