The launch of "Mary P" is planned for 2008, the new sportfishing yacht being built by the American Trinity Yachts who specialize in the construction of aluminium or steel motor yachts up to 400'in length. "Mary P", a 122 footer, is aimed at the affluent deep-sea fishing aficionados, and is the result of a collaboration between the Yard and the designer Judy Bell Davis. The yacht combines "fishing machine" characteristics with those of a normal oceanic cruiser. Thus spacious and well finished spaces may be found, structured to offer comfortable cruising even on long non-stop voyages. The lower decks host the cabins which have been divided between the forward area for the owner and guests and the stern for the crew. The owner suite is placed a small distance forward of amidships and also comprises a walk-in wardrobe, changing room and a spacious bathroom stretching over the full beam. Continuing our way forward we will come to a laundry room to port and a compact gymnasium to starboard, a double cabin with en-suite bathroom to port and a day head to starboard, and lastly a VIP suite stretching across the full beam. The crew's quarters in the stern, comprise two cabins with a "queen size" bed and separate bunks respectively plus two machine rooms. Some of the common areas extend inside the superstructure, on the main deck for example, where we find a centrally stationed galley, a dining area for both guests and crew, a bar and a spacious main saloon to enhance conviviality. The external areas of the main deck of the "sportfishing" motor yacht are characterized by the presence of a large tender up forward which may be manoeuvred with the help of its davits, whilst two cockpits may be found astern built on different levels. The first is a true extension of the main deck and is destined for outdoor meals and general lounging, the second one, placed on the lower deck, instead lends itself for fierce deep- sea fishing battles thanks to design and equipment. It has low sides, a rigging station, insulated containers for both bait and fish, combat chair and so on. The typically convertible version of this "fishing machine" includes an upper deck assigned to manoeuvring which comprises a second saloon and head, a dinette and controls room in the flying bridge placed further astern to favour communication between pilot and fisherman. In order to facilitate both cruising and fishing activities, "Mary P" has been equipped with a sophisticated system of stabilizers, the Quantum MagLift © and Zero Speed T so as to guarantee performance both at speed and at anchor or during line fishing.
