Mia Elise: A New Generation of Trinity Yachts

Danielle Cutler Wallin

A repeat client might wonder what could possibly differentiate this 164-foot (50-meter) motor yacht from the six other Trinity yachts that this enthusiast has owned in the past 10 years. “Mia Elise has a tender garage, a fifth guest stateroom on the pilothouse deck, a raised seating area on the aft main deck, and a huge hot tub on the aft flybridge where the tender would normally sit,” says Trinity’s vice president of sales and marketing, Billy Smith.

Beyond the obvious additions, the Mia Elise has a stylish contemporary decor defined by a juxtaposition of millwork and marble selections. “The millwork design has a complex combination of wood species such as anigre, Honduras mahogany, lacewood, Makassar ebony, wenge, redwood burl, and madrone burl in a contemporary high-polished finish, whereas all of the marble in the boat has a honed (matte) finish with iridescent glass-mosaic inlays. I personally find this combination of materials to be fresh and different from other boats,” says designer Patrick Knowles.

Another highlight of the new yacht is the split-level, full-beam master suite design with a Jacuzzi in the his-and-hers bathroom. Additionally, the main deck houses an open-plan dining and main salon area. A wine cellar on the bridge-deck landing makes for a warm entrance while also cooling and protecting precious cargo. Outdoor areas abound for dining, sunning, or just relaxing. A big swim platform off the tender garage entices swimmers to water’s edge and beyond. The huge hot tub appears like an infinity-type pool behind the large rectangular bar—a stunning addition to that top deck.

Not just the owners will have a chance to appreciate the amenities on the Mia Elise: It is listed for charter through International Yacht Collection. The yacht accommodates 12 guests in its six staterooms, as well as 10 crew. Two Caterpillar 3512B engines propel it to a comfortable cruising speed of 17 knots. Mia Elise tows a 38-foot tender and carries another, in addition to WaveRunners, snorkeling and fishing gear, and tow toys. Wi-Fi throughout keeps everyone firmly planted in reality.
