An attractive blend of sophistication and refined detailing, reflecting the elegant, up-to-the-moment taste of today’s prestigious luxury sector. A unique, impressive creation that is utterly original and gives the Owner the privilege of possessing a precious, one-off piece.
This is the latest in a string of unique yachts from Feadship, the Dutch brand that comprises Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, Royal Van Lent Shipyard and De Voogt Naval Architects, three illustrious names in the history of luxury international yachting. After Predator, from Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, which was presented last year in issue 11 of Yacht Première, we are now featuring Trident, by Royal Van Lent Shipyard.
She was launched in May 2009 and took part in the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show in the autumn of the same year. On display with her dazzling white livery, contrasting with the black helicopter on her sun deck, she was the true star of the Edmiston Company’s fleet for charter and for sale. Available for immediate purchase, Trident is a unique opportunity to own an exclusive Feadship yacht with immediate delivery, without the usual two or three year wait during the building process.

The vessel is compliant with the Lloyd’s Register, Maltese Cross 100 A1, SSC, Yacht P, MONO, G6, LMC, UMS, SCM classification as well as the MCA regulations. She also has the Lloyd’s Environmental Protection EP notation.

Trident has a displacement hull, fitted with a Naiad Marine Systems stabilizer system, 820 model and zero speed type, with hydraulically operated twin lateral fins,. Moreover, the hull of Trident has a tunnel-type bowthruster unit and a retractable azimuthing sternthruster unit: the latter unit is centrally installed, and operates both as a sternthruster and as an emergency propulsion system in combination with the generators.
Trident’s engine room is installed with twin V16 MTU turbodiesel engines, series 4000 rating M60R. Each engine, with a total displacement of 65 litres (3967 cu.in.), has a maximum output of 1877 bhp (1400 bkW), supplied at 1600 rpm.
Combined with ZF reduction gearboxes, the two engines are connected via stainless steel transmission shafts to twin 5-blade fixed-pitch propulsion propellers by Wartsila.

Trident’s lower deck garage has storage space for toys, waverunners and jet-skies; two tenders are stored in bays, behind the wheelhouse in the bridge deck and on both lateral sides of the superstructure. Both of Trident’s tenders are by the American firm Chris Craft, and both have an overall length of 7.14 metres (23’5”): one is a Corsair 22 Luxury Edition and the other a Launch 22 Heritage Edition.
