Where a white horse rushes

On board the Trinity Mi Sueno 190'.

Share on social media

"Mi Sueno" is the name of the owner's horse. The owner wanted the yacht to be as fast and graceful as his horse. But he also had another wish. The yacht was designed primarily for cruising the Bahamas with its shallow waters. It was also necessary to make it roomy, designed for large companies who prefer outdoor activities. Consequently, more space was needed for the garage. The ship's draft, on the other hand, was supposed to be small so that it could come closer to the shoreline. As a result, the company's naval architects Trinity Yachts created a semi-displacement aluminum body 57.9 meters long, 10.2 meters wide and 2.6 meters draught. It is noteworthy that for the seven-meter tender Novurania had to increase the hull by 2 meters compared to the original plan. Two Caterpillar engines of 3,384 hp each speed up the yacht to 21 knots, which does not make it sporty, but it is still faster than most boats of this class.

Bottom line. Mi Sueno was the first Trinity 190-foot long case, and management has every reason to believe that this standard will be in demand more than once. By the way, Mi Sueno means «My Dream»and the new Trinity is perfect proof that dreams come true.

Captain Doug Peterson was delighted with her performance after several months on the new superyacht. Her sharp nose like a knife cuts through waves and two Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers protect the hull from rocking. According to Peterson, there was a case where the wind rose to 25 knots in the Gulf of Mexico and the yacht remained stable. And when the wind increased to 50 knots with gusts up to 65, the crew indoors simply did not notice it.

The lines are fast and sporty, the drawing is neat and the space is uncluttered: all the sea toys are hidden in the garage, although there was enough space to place them on decks as well. In addition, there is space for a helipad on the deck. However, when the author of these lines visited Mi Sueno during the boat show in Fort Lauderdale, there was another outdoor seating area on the helicopter site.

In general, the yacht does not suffer from a lack of entertainment in the sun. In addition to a Jacuzzi, there is also a swimming pool with spectacular green mosaic tiles and outdoor seating on both the main and bridge decks.

While the naval architecture and exterior design is traditionally carried out by Trinity Yachts, the interior design is entrusted to the following. to Patrick Knowles. from Fort Lauderdale, who's already created several interiors for Trinity. According to Knowles himself, he developed a modern urban style with elements of Zen. I didn't see so much Zen in this design, but rather the proximity to Art Deco in the Shanghai version with its dark mahogany interiors: who was in Shangri-La hotels will understand. However, there are several original ideas in the design and layout: there is definitely something to see. For example, the entrance to the main deck saloon is through a wine cellar the size of which is unlikely to have been seen on a yacht.

The specially equipped refrigerated cabinets on either side of the corridor can accommodate 492 standard bottles of wine and 32 more magnum. Individual niches play the role of humidors. The cellar area is separated from the living room by a curtain and is suitable for detailed tastings.

The master suite is forward on the main deck; its main feature is that it is on two levels. The Owner's bed is elevated in front of panoramic windows, while the salon, study and corridor leading to the two bathrooms are below. On the lower deck there are five guest cabins, including a VIP cabin with a sofa and a table. The remaining 4 cabins have individual layouts with different bed types. If necessary, a massage room on the bridge deck can be turned into another cabin thanks to the pullman beds.

Mi Sueno stands out for its original use of stone. For example, the floor of the main deck lobby is lined with rare blue granite that shimmers like stars in the night sky. But the most interesting is the bar in Skylounge, the upper saloon. It is decorated with a tiger's eye, which is also good in small doses, and on the scale of the tabletop produces a literally hypnotic impression. If you go a little ahead, you can be in the control center of the yacht, and it is worth it. The best view of the yacht is from here, from the cabin with parallel glazing. It's worth making friends with Doug Peterson to come in here more often.
