Triton is an expedition-style megayacht built by Delta Marine for a couple who loved adventure and sea exploration. When it was finished in 2004, this was one of the largest yachts that had been manufactured from fiber glass in the US. In 2010, however, some legal matters went wrong and it all ended up with a foreclosure and sale order. We won’t bore you with the details.
As a result, the beautiful megayacht will soon be offered at auction (April 26) and it will be sold “as is, where is” to the most generous bidder of all. The vessel is currently located in San Diego. Measuring 163 feet in length, the yacht was designed by Delta Design Group of Delta Marine, and it was equipped with an impressive list of amenities.
The people who commissioned it wanted a reliable yacht that would do excellently in various weather conditions, and which could take them around the world without difficulty. This resulted in a technologically advanced vessel with twin 1,000-hp Caterpillar diesel engines that ensure a range of 6,100 miles at 12 knots. Even the tenders’ launch and retrieval system is special, permitting launching even while the yacht is under power.
Noteworthy amenities also include a crow’s nest accessible via elevator, a helipad, mahogany paneling in all spaces, skylounge with easy indoor-outdoor transition, accommodations for 14 guests plus 10 crew members, a galley/country kitchen, and many more.
