America's 100 Largest Yachts 2007 #77: Triton
We've heard some pretty funny stories about who supposedly owns certain yachts, but a story about how Hollywood's Baldwin family owns this one truly was, shall we say, creative. The actual owners are avid sailors, having completed five circumnavigations aboard their previous yacht, a 95-foot sailboat.

DID YOU KNOW...
—The husband half of Triton's owners is also an avid angler and wanted to fight big game onboard. He and Delta created a sophisticated tethering system to let him cross from the yacht's cockpit to a fishing tender while under power without having to pass the rod to anyone, in compliance with IGFA rules.
—This is the couple’s first motoryacht.
—The yacht is registered in the Bikini Islands, and since "Bikini" is in large letters on her transom, some yachtspotters have assumed her name was Triton Bikini.—D.M.B.
