Ruler of the Seas

Triton is a 49.7m (163 ft) US Delta Marine superyacht that was custom made for all-terrain adventures and long-range exploration, and was launched in August 2004. As you can see in this video, the expedition yacht has a striking presence as she emerges into Sentosa Cove like a mighty ruler of the sea, the embodiment of her Greek name. 

She has a 9.65m beam and sits in the water with a draft of 2.8m. Her 527 gross tonnage can move at a top speed of 16 knots, powered by her twin Caterpillar Inc 3508B diesel engines (1,000hp).  With 73,815 litres in her fuel tanks and cruising at a comfortable 12 knots, she can reach a range of approximately 6,100 nautical miles. Not only can the vessel be controlled from the bridge, but she also has full steering controls positioned at the stern, crow’s nest and the wings.   


   Triton is built with a GRP superstructure that sits upon a GRP mono hull. Her exterior architecture and interior design and styling are the work of United States based Delta Design Group. Her cabin configuration consists of 5 rooms; a master suite, a VIP cabin, and 3 double cabins, plus she has 4 pullman beds spread out over the staterooms, allowing a total of 14 guests to stay onboard overnight. The full-beam master suite is situated on the main deck forward and boasts a private office, sitting room and library. She also accommodates up to 10 qualified crew members.

Triton is a remarkable four deck yacht that sets a new standard in the world of luxury seafaring, with underwater observation cameras positioned in the bulbous bow that grants a front row seat for guests who are curious about the ocean’s mysteries. In addition, she has an electro-hydraulically powered elevator to transport guests from the flybridge down to the lower deck, plus another elevator to the crow’s nest.

She flaunts a helicopter landing pad capable of housing a Eurostar EC 130B4, for seamless accessibility from shore to vessel. Aft of the main deck there lies some overhead gantry cranes, ready to hydraulically deploy two 24ft tenders that are stowed on her teak deck. This tender towing system has a self-tailing winch and a boom, which allows deployment while underway. She also carries 2 SeaDoo RXP 215hp jetskis. 

Facilities include a capacious gymnasium, a jacuzzi, a walk-in fridge-freezer, and ingenious TVs that flip from the ceiling downwards. For those onboard who are looking for more action and adventure, she is equipped with a Great White Shark rated cage, plus, deep-sea scuba apparatus, exotic reef-diving gear, water sports accessories and deep-sea sport fishing equipment. For easy access to the water, she has a hydraulic swim platform at her transom. 

It hasn’t always been plain sailing for Triton though, as she was seized by the US government in 2010, after her intended first owners failed to pay an installment for her build. She was originally on the market for US$25.9 million. Later, on 26th April 2013, her distress sale saw her sell at auction in San Diego for just US$11 million. 

Triton is the 11th-largest vessel that has been built by Delta Marine, and she is ranked as the 1,073rd-largest yacht in the world.
