    I have seen photos of her in the water, although she is still being finished.

    OKay, then, that is good, if possible could you PM a link to the pics you saw? I'm interested in this particular Trinity.

    The photograhs show Big Zip in the water (while still being finished) and Mi Sueno in the travel lift.

    Stopped by the Trinity Yard for an update while in town for some other biz and saw Mi Sueno just about ready to shove off for her maiden voyage to Florida. She is sharp looking, with red lettering and a red boot stripe which sets her apart from other yachts. Extended aft deck styling looks good. Didn't get on board as techs were finishing up work. Keep an eye out for her in Florida and at FLIBS this year.

    She is a looker. The full sized photos are a bit sharper (must loose something when reduced). Found a nice spot on the river to watch her leave but had to get back to work. Oh well.
    BTW, Trinity is pretty busy and still has a good number of yachts on order. Diversifying back into the commercial builds with Trinity Offshore (order for 2 escort tugs and a number of military patrol boats) is helping the yard survive and thrive. They can use the same workers from the yachts to work on the commercial vessels as needed.
    I like this mid shot.

    The Black masked windows really give the illusion that alot more panoramic and bigger windows are in that area but when you look carefully you can actually see the windows there. Black masng always makes for attractiveness.

    I agree. The blackout treatment is a nice design move on Mi Sueno.

    Am I to believe that the new "Mine Games" will be delivered in 2011? If so, she would be 2 years late?

    When an owner commissions a new yacht, many times it comes from their dreams of cruising to exotic locations, gaining enjoyment from new surroundings, or another fulfilling desire. The new Trinity Yacht M/Y Mi Sueno (or my dream), is a dream to look at, with classic Trinity styling.
    Mi Sueno is now basking in the Florida sunshine having just completed her maiden voyage from the Trinity yard in Gulfport, MS.

    Formerly known as hull T045 at the yard, Mi Sueno has a fabulous pedigree to stand tall and part the seas of many oceans and waterways, also thanks to a clean bow entry and knockdown strakes. For those experienced Trinity spotters, you'll notice the signature fore walkway railing and stanchions will soon be installed.

    Mi Sueno's aft follows a bit of a squared-off style, with straight boarding steps to the aft deck (still the shortest distance between two points).
    Her aft engine room door is a "door in a door" setup, in that the larger cutout opens to reveal the garage and tender storage, as per her deck plans.

    The ever-familiar hull windows lets you know it's a Trinity. And there is nothing like casting your eyes on a brand-new yacht. Breath in deeply, you can smell the newness.

    Tough to get a full length shot on the docks, so I had to wedge in-between two bows to capture her full glory (darn pilings).
    The dock was abuzz with last minute prepping, cleaning and provisioning. One of the crew I spoke to was very polite and informative, and if that was indicative of the rest of the crew, then I'm sure this will be a classy but fun yacht to be on. Add in the Patrick Knowles interior, and you may think you're dreaming on-board Mi Sueno.

    What a great short story and as always, the photographs are spectacular. I have breathed deep and I do smell the newness of this proud American Yacht!
    I would love to be your personal assistant Captain!:D
