    Personally, I'd call it Classic.

    As for Avante-Garde and Expeditions, I don't actually like both on the same vessel. For example, WallyPower and Cover Drive are two of my faves, yet I love Octopus as well. On a slightly more reasonable scale, I think the Molokai Straight designs are absolutely beautiful.

    I'm totally baffled...

    We've just been granted the complete image suite of Triton!!! :eek:

    I'll get started on the feature right away...

    Thanks Kevin. I've just been informed that a man of my advanced years should only be interested in the classic and nothing avant-garde or as adventurish as something to do with expedition. :) Rotten children. :D

    Congrats. Either feast or famine. Suppose I ought to dress for this feast. :)

    I have to tell you, these images of Triton are excellent! It's ALWAYS been my favorite expedition and it's been a little discouraging that we haven't been able to feature it. Although it was launched some time ago, it was one of the most significant builds in the industry... and we're excited to finally feature it. :)

    Sorry to take this thread off-track. Kelly started a good topic... "what's your preference?" Well...

    I love sports cars, but I drive an SUV. I'm one of those guys that can admire a trawler... even when it's got a bad case of the uglies. That pretty much sums up my preference... Expedition.

    I like a boat that greets tsunami's with a smile and deploys toys faster than Mattel. Self-contained, go anywhere, big-bow blue-water bruisers with a can-do attitude.

    Give me an expedition... or I'm getting in my Boston Whaler and going home. :D

    Triton is a beautiful vessel. Seems to be very well thought out. Thanks for the review.
    Any information on crew compliment and quarters?

    Big photo spread! Take away the chopper and that top deck would have room for a nice size tender - page link

    She is a sweet looking rig. Conservative but stylish and I suspect easy to work and practical for the crew.

    KCOOK I'm with you. Triton without the chopper. In its place I would load up a Grady White 22 Cuddy so we could do a spot of fishing in areas where Triton might not fit.
    I would add a sound studio and a humidity controlled area for Acoustic instruments and such.

    Kudos to whoever comes up with the money first!:)

    Gradys are nice. But a Stamas 290 Express with tuna tower would be more my vibe. Besides, the only acoustic in my studio is a Paiste cymbal. All the rest are synths. :cool:

    did we forget the Octopus?..i think she is very much an expedition yacht...just an oversized one with overaccessorized luxury!
