Charm and Grace of A Bygone Era
History and elegance, rolled into one
Constructed back in 1926 and designed by Ted Geary, Mariner III may be one of the area’s most easily-recognizable yachts. The 120 foot vessel was built for Captain James Griffiths of Griffiths Steamship Company. Over the years, the yacht has maintained the elegant charm and grace of a bygone era.
Passengers instantly notice the many touches that help to set this yacht apart from the competition; from the lovely varnished woodwork and gorgeous teak wood decks to sparkling brass fixtures, and much more, the Mariner III is brimming with exceptionally-beautiful details.
Low key luncheons or formal dining service
The yacht features covered companionways, an elegant salon and casual seating for parties of up to 120 guests. The Mariner III makes an outstanding venue for a New Years Eve dinner cruise, anniversary dinners, lunch cruises and employee awards luncheons. The Upper Deck is an ideal location for a casual luncheon or more formal dinnertime occasion—as a bonus, it can be tented in case of inclement weather.
The cuisine on board the Mariner III is top-notch and delicious. The talented gourmet chef is known for preparing fresh seafood dishes, moist and tender beef that practically melts in the mouth, and tasty hors d’oeuvres that are a great way to start off a memorable meal.
Perfect for family or business –related events
The Mariner III, which was recently featured in a Tommy Hilfiger video, is an idea yacht for client networking cruises, graduation dinners and film shoots. Guests are sure to enjoy their time on the Mariner III and leave the yacht filled with happy memories of their time spent onboard.
