Mariner III

Length: 122 Feet

A classic 122-foot fantail motor yacht. A tour of the interior of the vessel offers beautifully appointed state rooms. An excellent vessel for Corporate meetings, weddings, sweet sixteen’s, film shoots, and any reason to have a party large or small.


Mariner III was built in 1926 for Captain James Griffiths of Griffiths Steamship Company. This classic 122′ fantail motor yacht, was designed by Ted Geary. Traveling to China to select the lumber for her construction, Captain Griffiths chose 3″ teak planking for the hull and very strong wood, called yacal, for framing. Originally named “SueJa III,” Captain Griffiths used the yacht to travel up and down the West Coast.

In keeping with its original 1920’s design and the flavor of that era, the Mariner II was. restored to its old world charm with deep, rich, patterned furnishings, beautifully varnished woodwork, and polished solid brass fixtures.

Her reputation for excellence is known throughout New York, New England, Florida and the Caribbean. She has enjoyed guests on board from Jacques Cousteau, the Rockefellers, Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis, Robert Deniro, Don Henley, Jimmy Buffett and Madonna, in addition to a long list of corporate giants from across the country. You might recognize her from magazine ads for Ralph Lauren and Maybelline, fashion and travel editorials in The New York Times Magazine and many layouts in Victoria’s Secret catalogs.

Today, the Mariner III is one of the few luxury yachts afloat that offers her guests the classic opulence of days gone by.

Inside, great care has been taken to maintain the integrity of her styling. From the solid mahogany table that seats eight on the aft deck. To the extravagance of having two full-size bathtubs aboard.

Her fully air-conditioned interior provides six staterooms, all richly paneled in polished teak, plus quarters for a crew of six. Guest accommodations include two full-width master staterooms, one with a king-size bed and private tub, and one with a queen-size bed and private head with shower, three single staterooms and one V-Berth.

Her well-appointed main salon is outfitted with an entertainment center, complete with stereo, TV and VCR.

Directly above, the Mariner III’s enormous sun deck offers the ideal spot for private sunbathing. From here her twin powerboats may be launched for fishing or a private excursion to a nearby island.
