The 163-foot motor yacht Triton, complete with helicopter and a landing pad designed to the standards of the American Petroleum Institute, rests at anchor Sunday in Douglas Channel. The yacht features two 24-foot tenders, a hot tub on the fly bridge, and two elevators - one of which takes guests up to the crows nest for viewing. It also features a walk-in refrigerator and freezer, gymnasium, library, office, his and her baths, underwater cameras, flip down televisions from the ceilings, hardwood floors, dive compressor and dive platform and state-of-the-art Sonar and bottom-mapping systems by Simrad for taking 3D photographs of the ocean floor. The Yacht's cruising speed is 13 knots with a range of 6,000 miles. It was built for a Seattle owner.
