The 118’ (35.97m) raised pilothouse SUMMER LOVE is an excellent example of classic Trinity craftsmanship. Since her 1999 delivery, the yacht has benefitted from a number of refits, most recently in 2019 and 2022. 

On her interior, SUMMER LOVE showcases a traditional design style with a mixture of fabrics, furnishings and wood detailing designed by Claudette Bonville.  SUMMER LOVE’s warm and welcoming main salon is surrounded by large windows allowing for an abundance of natural light. Guests can relax on the large sofa and enjoy meals at the formal dining table. SUMMER LOVE’s country-style galley is spacious and invites guests to gather around the island and socialize while meals are being prepared. The light and airy feeling contributes to the welcoming atmosphere of the space. 

The yacht hosts up to eight guests in four staterooms. The full-beam master suite features a king-size bed and a cozy seating area. The room is spacious and elegant with lots of ambient lighting. Additional arrangements include two mirror VIP cabins and a twin stateroom with a Pullman. SUMMER LOVE is an ideal yacht for families with small children as they can be easily accommodated. Each cabin offers a cozy ambience, ensuring each guest that spends nights onboard will be in complete comfort. The yacht welcomes five or six crew members in three cabins. 

SUMMER LOVE’s exterior offers several areas for alfresco dining and lounging. The main deck aft has an oversized varnished teak table for enjoying meals outdoors. The spiral staircase leads up to the flybridge and the two wide curved stairways lead down to the swim platform for easy water access. The flybridge is accessed from the fully updated pilothouse and features a large sunbathing area, hot tub, full wet bar and additional seating. This space is ideal for entertaining surrounded by the passing scenery. A large boat deck is located aft for tender and toy storage.

Entering the salon from the aft deck doors, the volume of Summer Love is striking. The light filled open plan layout, draws you from the well-appointed salon, past the large formal dining area, on deck dayhead, and through to the country style galley with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

Guest staterooms include an aft full beam master king stateroom, forward port & starboard mirror Queen VIP staterooms, and a midships twin with additional Pullman bed.

The flybridge is accessed from the fully updated pilothouse and features a large sunbathing area, hot tub, multiple seating area, full service wet bar, and large boat deck for aft tender and toy storage.

The aft main deck has an oversized varnished teak table for al fresco dining, a spiral staircase to the flybridge, and concealed refrigerator and icemaker. Two wide curved stairways lead to the swim platform, for easy access to the water.
