Jaw-dropping £330million trimaran concept to cruise the high seas
A California-based designer has unveiled his latest project - an incredible multihull trimaran that uses tilting sails to cruise the ocean.
Steve Kozloff's Trident cuts a striking silhouette similar to the top of Poseidon's famous three-pronged spear, along with a gleaming steel hull and aluminium superstructure that's certain to stand out on the high seas.
And that's not all - her six decks are overflowing with options for your leisure or fun. Starting inside, Trident's multi-level living quarters span more than 5,100 square feet and feature huge windows throughout for panoramic views.
The large piano bar and saloon on the upper deck act as the hub of the vessel, from which a network of walkways will lead you to other sections. The 682-square-foot owner's suite sits in the bow of the centre hull, while the VIP suites can be found in the respective bows of the two smaller hulls. There are another 10 guest cabins spread across the outriggers, along with accommodation for up to 20 crew.
Outside, meanwhile, there is a full-beam beach club at the stern of the main hull with retractable decks for even more space. Elsewhere, there are two spas in the main hull - one forward; the other aft - as well as a helipad and a pool. There is, of course, a full-beam garage that can hold U-Boat Worx's Nemo submarine and other water toys.
Trident is the latest model in Kozloff's Goliath Series of "folding" sailing yachts, and its two free-standing masts can tilt 70 degrees forward to reduce the air draft from 238 feet to 138.5 feet and enable the vessel to pass under most bridges. Each mast can also rotate a full 360 degrees to maximize wind power - meaning it can hit 12 knots under sail power. She is also fitted with a hybrid (diesel-electric) system that enables a top speed of 17 knots. She can cover 6,700 nautical miles when cruising at 14 knots on diesel alone.
