  1. The entertainment partition creates a passageway between the salon and dining area. It also serves as a "book-end" library, complete with novels to sweep readers away on long voyages. Among Triton's less relaxing studies are a large gym aft, past the engine room, with Bow-Flex, Octane, and Cybex equipment.
  2. Dinner for eight calls for proper dress in the separate but adjacent dining room, which further accentuates the near-formal style. Curved chair-arms echo the ceiling and wainscot wood trim and the prominent figure-grained deep mahogany dining table. Overhead starlight illumination is adjustable to fit the occasion. As a reminder of the blessings she brings from the sea, a mermaid statue keeps watch over diners.
  3. Just to port is the mammoth-size galley, large enough for a central slump-glass island prep bar. Resplendent with a stainless steel cook top range, oven, dishwasher, refrigerators and freezers, it is complete with enough professional-quality gear to ellicit huzzahs from any top-drawer chef. Flooring is varnished teak, while cabinetry makes use of mahogany as well as light colorings in composite overheads.
  4. Starboard of the galley is a compact C-shaped breakfast nook, booth style, with two extra chairs, serving eight early risers or midnight snackers. While the galley is open to the dinette to invite participation during food preparation, it can also be closed of via a sliding wall panel, facilitating a private, peaceful meal.
  5. The interior adornments continue their theme with the master staircase. Winding top to bottom in no continuing sequence, but following the decor theme of dark woods and neutral colors, the staircase connects the suites below.
  6. Made up of the office, sitting room, bedroom and bath, the master suite is luxuriant yet staid. Its sensual and indulgent bedroom is dominated by lavish fabrics and a king-size island berth; its rounded corners buffed to perfection in gloss-finished walnut and mahogany. A 42” plasma TV remains concealed until activated, then slides down from the ceiling, just forward of the overhead mirror with lighting... which may be provided as a reminder of who the real star is... Triton's lucky owner.
  7. The VIP becomes a pretender to the throne with an overhead mirror and starlights as well. Twin night-stands flank the berth and there are dual walk-in wardrobes too. Recessed lighting under the bed lends a subtle ambiance.
  8. An alternate view of the VIP suite shows an opulent double-dresser, while the office and sitting room await just outside the door. Of special mention is the artistry of these doors, with protective polished kick-plates to ensure many years of unblemished use.
  9. Lustrous, elegant leaf-green marble is the dominant shade in this exquisite bath. It features twin his/hers wash basins and dual private heads, plus a large shower room. Light ecru colors preside over the airy space while darker wood tones snap with accents.

    Other guest rooms mirror the luxury of the master, on a slightly less opulent scale. The total number of guests in four staterooms below decks reaches to more than a dozen, with two VIP staterooms centered on the lower deck. Others make use of compact Pullmans and twin facilities, providing comfortable rest for all.
  10. Just off the master suite is the office/sitting room, which is furnished with a bookcase, desk and couch, plus an outside window with blinds. The space is completely equipped for wireless communications worldwide. It is the perfect place to tend to Triton's details and keep the owner on top of business far away.
  11. Twin Guest staterooms are no less aesthetically pleasing, some offering twin berths, shown above, plus an open upper Pullman berth, while other options do not make use of the upper. Captain’s and crew’s quarters on the lower deck, forward, include facilities for ten, with staterooms, heads and entertainment/laundry facilities.
  12. The power source of it all, Triton’s massive and spotless walk-around engine room houses the twin CAT 3508B 1,000 hp diesels, turning at 1600 rpm cruise. Notice the galaxy lineup of filters and the great volume allowed for servicing these behemoths. Additional equipment includes a pair of Northern Lights generators, Neptune water makers, Aqua Aire 30-ton air conditioning and Harris electrical systems.

    Diagnostics and repairs can be conducted underway, due to a large work station that is insulated from the engine room. Not visible is the plethora of engineering details set forth in the original protocol, such as easy access to drive systems, hydraulics and the necessary plumbing that accompanies. And finally, video cameras monitor the entire engine room, in addition to the digital signals being transmitted to the helm.
  13. Triton’s legend is just begun. With her worldwide cruising capabilities, plus building technologies that enable her owners’ audacious and daring plans, this innovative yacht becomes the benchmark for luxury adventure cruising.

    Destination: the Seven Seas...

    ...the ancients would be jubilant and Captain Nemo himself would have been proud to own this yacht!
