  1. Guest staterooms are larger than usual on this yacht, and include two VIP suites aft. There is a desk and writing table in each well decorated room. Each offers ensuite heads/showers, with excellent yachting art on the walls. Notice the drop down flat screen that folds up flush with the ceiling. Notice the Creston control plunked down on the bed. These controls are found in all the cabins, managing not only the Audio/Video, but the lighting, curtains and air-conditioning as well.
  2. Attention to details abounds, such as shower carpets with the ship's signature. This guest bath picture shows in better detail the mahogany rails that are a continuous throughout the ship, much like one would find on sailing ships. Should the stabilizers decide to play hooky, they could come in handy.
  3. My Trust also provides two twin guest cabins with ensuite heads. Four double Crew cabins are situated in the lower forepeak, plus crew mess, pantry and laundry room. Pullman bunks are hidden in the guest cabin ceilings as well.
  4. My Trust’s Galley, located just aft the command station, featuring Hobart stainless steel, is as complete and up to date as possible; with an array of freezers, stoves, microwaves, and adjacent gear to please the most accomplished international chefs. The corner shown here is merely an introduction to the completeness of preparation, storage, and possibilities of this yacht.
  5. My Trust’s designers thoughtfully provided an extra large laundry facility, for a yacht this size. It features several washers, driers, and an ironing machine that will surely by appreciated by all.
  6. Down below, the spacious garage is set up to handle a large pilot boat, plus as many water toys as the crew and passengers may fancy, all easily deployed via the overhead Gantry crane. Swim platform railings are stored forward when the toys are in use.
  7. Another unusual surprise of My Trust is her large, uncommon Lazarette, aft, which features a teak-planked floor, air conditioning, and a full bathroom with a shower. In addition, it holds a tender and three Jet Skis in a polished steel frame. Launching is simple with an overhead Cramm sliding beam davit. There is also a dive-tank compressor.
  8. My Trust's twin CAT diesels -- 3508B DI-TA's, each with an MCR (Maximum Continuous Rating) of 716 kW at 1600 rpm, allow a range of 4,600 nm at a leisurely speed of 11.3 knots. Max ship speed is 13.4 knots. Onboard power is furnished by two Kilopak HEO8PF3P generators, providing 130kW at 1500 rpm.
  9. No question... "My Trust" is a very well thought out yacht; even more so for its intended charter
    use. The fact this up-to-date yacht so vividly captures the spirit of a splendid yachting period,
    only adds to the allure and wonder of her guests.


    She is sure to make a series of long-to-be yacht owners very happy!
