Having been completed and officially launched back in 2004 by Delta Marine, the expedition-style superyacht Triton is in fact the largest of today’s composite-built yachts in the United States.

This gorgeous king of the seas will reportedly go on auction during the 26th of April under order of the United States Marshal. Measuring 163 feet (around 50 meters) from bow to stern, the massive ship is currently docked in San Diego. The cruiser is extremely well balanced thanks to the exquisite design envisioned by acclaimed naval architectural firm Delta Design Group.

They have reportedly worked on an advanced hull laminate schedule making use of extensive quantities of carbon fiber, for both rigidity and lightness. It was as well constructed for those adventurous spirits willing to explore every place they reach, being able to accommodate deep-sea scuba diving gear, water games, stuffs for all sorts of water-related activities as well as sport fishing gear.

In addition, this exquisite sailing vessel also comes with an indoor-outdoor skylounge area, a galley that can serve as either a crew-exclusive area or a comfy country kitchen, helipad, accommodations for up to 14 guests courtesy of Pullmans in the 4 guest rooms, mahogany paneling throughout the yacht, a draft of 9 feet 4 inches (approximately 2.9 meters), a 31-foot beam (9.4 meters) and cabins for up to 10 crew members. For the times when the yacht is full, the builders have fitted the Triton with a lounging area, plus a formal writing desk. The master bedroom on the other hand is luxuriously opulent, fit for royalties.

Performance-wise, the Triton boasts twin 1,000 HP Caterpillar diesel engines able to provide a range of up to 6,100 nautical miles when travelling at 12 knots. Ashley Prather and Michelle Jones of Delta Marine have more details, in case one needs them.
