Trinity Yachts and The Sacks Group Introduce Superyacht "MY IRIS" to Yacht Charter Vacations

Aboard for an unforgettable, ultra-chic charter experience

Captain O’Neill fairly beams when describing the entertainment options available aboard My Iris.  “Electronics upgrades have been completed in the last six months in order to keep My Iris state-of-the-art. The DVD server and internet service are second to none. Our “Kaleidescape” central DVD server is accessible from all guest cabins and public areas.  This makes it possible for a guest to make a selection from an on-demand library of more than 600 movies and 400 CDs by means of a Crestron touch screen remote and enjoy the selected item virtually anywhere aboard.  It’s a neat trick that people can watch the same movie from different locations independently.  Additionally, I-Pod receptacles were recently added at every location so guests can plug in their personal devices and listen to their own music.  Each server location has also been equipped with independent satellite TV receivers.  As regards internet service, we have added a VSAT satellite system allowing all guests unlimited high speed internet access from their laptops via our onboard Wi-Fi system.  Even when we are cruising far off-shore, everybody enjoys continuous internet access.”

The My Iris pilothouse is opulently appointed and set up for guests to enjoy this key element of the yachting experience.  Behind a special-purpose coffee table, gaufrage leather upholsters a comfy banquette placed just far enough away from the controls to offer a prime viewing of them.  Captain O’Neill remarks: “This is a great place for guests to sit, have a cup of coffee or a snack and watch the world go by
from the crew’s vantage point.”

Iris has been a Greek goddess and an opera by Pietro Mascagni while Irises have been depicted in paintings by Vincent Van Gogh.  The super-yacht My Iris continues the tradition of applying the appellation to a thing of great beauty.  It is no exaggeration to call My Iris one of the finest flowerings in the noble world of yacht building and design.
