    This shot was a total improv. All the lights were off in Viking's booth, so we used our iPhones to illuminate the 76' convertible model.

    Notice the Trinity logo on the lower left of the stern door? As if to say... "if you can read this, you're in 2nd place".

    Fishes basking in the glow of a near-full moon.

    Glowing like a beacon on a stormy night; the mast on the Doggersbank "Beothuk".

    What you can't see in the daylight comes out for those perusing the docks after dark. M/Y Migliori Amici is like a chamelion. The lights change every few seconds, from this...

    With the clock striking midnight, outriggers formed a canopy to guide our way home.

    Monday, November 2nd; Closing Day​

    And while we're talkin' vantage points, check this out; Maraya's fold-out beach platform, located off the master suite. (this is the starboard side of the boat!)

    From onboard Trinity's beautiful "Bacarella", here's a peak over the bow of yet another Trinity; "Blind Date"

    Filling a void in the market for steel hull trawlers, this is the Bering 55. This was Judy Waldman's office at this year's show. A review will follow in 2010.
