Trinity was founded in 1988 by Billy Smith and John Dane. It was then part of the Halter Marine Group. In 2000 Trinity was sold to Smith, Dane, and Felix Sabates.

At that time Sabates was the owner of the Trinity yacht Big Easy. Bill Smith also owned a Trinity yacht, a 35 meter (114ft) motor yacht named Leda. In 2013 Trinity was sold to private equity investor Littlejohn & Co and in 2015 Trinity was sold again to Harvey Gulf International.
