Mariner III was designed by Ted Geary and built by Winslow Marine Rail & Shipbuilding Company, Winslow, WA in 1926 for Captain James Griffiths of Griffiths Steamship Company. Captain Griffiths travelled to China to select the lumber for her construction. They chose 3 inch teak planking for the hull and very strong wood, called yacal, for framing. Captain Griffiths used his yacht (originally named “SueJa III”) to travel up and down the West Coast.

MARINER III’s fully air-conditioned interior provides accommodations for nine guests in 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, full-size bathtub, and one with a queen-size bed and private head with shower, and three single staterooms. A gourmet chef selects and prepares all meals, wine and liquor according to MARINER III guest’s tastes and dietary requirements. Her well-appointed salon is outfitted with comfortable sofas and chairs with 1920s décor designed by architect Mitchell Turnbough, as well as an entertainment center. Directly above, Mariner III’s enormous sun deck offers the ideal spot for dinner events or for private sunbathing. From here her twin powerboats may be launched for fishing, skiing or a private excursion to a nearby island.

MARINER III is one of the most sought after and successful classic charter vessels on the market today, and has been for over twenty years. She is one of only a few luxury yachts available over 100 feet that offer guests the charm and opulence of days gone by. Built in 1926, MARINER III embodies the elegance and luxury of America’s Golden Age. Great care has been taken to maintain the integrity of her styling. Rich varnished teak, gleaming brass, and custom hand-crafted beveled lead crystal windows from Paris are just some of the gracious details on this truly extraordinary classic charter yacht.
