Trinity Launches the 198' Areti


Trinity Yachts recently launched the 198' Areti soon after delivering Carpe Diem to her owner. While vastly different yachts, these sisterships are based on a similar platform, and they are among the largest aluminum semi-planing hulls Trinity has built.

When asked specifically for versatility—the yacht will spend considerable time in both Caribbean and Mediterranean waters—the designers at Trinity met the challenge head on. The result? Areti, while very large, has a draft less than 8', making it possible for her owners to visit those hard-to-reach Caribbean islands they favor. Designer Patrick Knowles, known for his virtuosity with wood, worked with mahogany-veneered panels, cherry burl inlays, beautiful Pacific Northwest madrone and redwood to go along with marble mosaics in an impressive array of colors and patterns. The full-beam master suite is an elevated split level with his-and-hers heads, sweeping staircases and full-forward panoramic views. Six additional staterooms span two decks. Other amenities include a custom hot tub, gymnasium, steam room and sauna, changing rooms, dayhead and a full complement of water toys. The galley is equipped with a large walk-in refrigerator and freezer, and the ship’s systems use the latest technological advances available, which, with a cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles, will allow for plenty of uninterrupted voyages.
