A characterful vessel with accommodation for eight guests in four cabins, MARIE was custom-built along gentleman's yacht lines by the Dutch shipyard, Vitters.
Designed by Andrew Hoek, Marie's interior is bursting with personality. Her light, open-plan living area is comfortable and welcoming, with traditional features including miniature cannons, muskets and a suit of armour recalling the Golden Age of exploration. A split-level salon is illuminated by large skylights, a more formal setting below features a Steinway baby grand piano and an oval dining table.
The large, sheltered cockpit is a favourite spot for al fresco dining and relaxing at anchor, and the wide decks beyond provide ample opportunities to bask in the sun. The master suite has its own private cockpit, creating a romantic setting aft for sundowners or an after dinner aperitif, before retiring to the full beam master cabin with its en suite steam room and deck house study. The guest double cabin is equally light and airy, and there are two twin cabins (one converts to a double) each with pullman berths that are popular with children.
The exquisite 3.7m launch, MARIETTA, is housed on board. This 1910 Mylne-designed sailing dinghy with an electric motor is perfect for exploring quiet bays, or teaching children to sail. The young and the mischievous will enjoy playing 'pirates' and firing a salute from MARIE's fully-operational cannons! Others will love the crow's nest lift which can hoist two guests 37.5m up the main mast for spectacular views.
Her soaring masts were designed to carry a huge 3,300 sqm (33,500 sqft) press of sail, which can smoothly propel this luxury yacht to over 18 knots. The latest hybrid and carbon fibre technology ensures that she is agile and, most importantly, safe.
