Vicem’s Trumpy 125 order...

Design

The Antalya, Turkey yard is to build a 38m (125ft) retro-styled motoryacht.

AUGUST 2009

With styling inspired by John Trumpy’s pre-war designs — square stem, big counter and mock funnel etc — she will be built for Trumpy Yachts’ client Classic Yacht Partners, a yacht share operation.
The deal was signed in the USA in early August between Johan Trumpy and Jim Ewing of Trumpy Yachts of Newport, Rhode Island, and Alex Suarez, managing partner of Classic Yacht Partners of Atlanta, Georgia.
The famous Annapolis, Maryland-located yacht yard of John Trumpy & Sons Inc finally closed its doors in ’74. But this resurrection of the Trumpy brand is not just about the marketing of a legend. Johan Trumpy originally worked for the family yard with his father and grandfather, who designed and built many wonderful yachts during a long and distinguished career; his credits include the design of at least one presidential yacht.
