Recently reduced by $2M, and designed to explore the world’s remote regions while being self-sufficient leaving a low carbon footprint, the 147’ (45m) DOROTHEA III yacht is an expedition yacht that combines timeless design and a luxurious interior. She was built to be reliable and provide the efficiency of a commercial vessel while offering the fascination and freedom of yachting. DOROTHEA III has undergone three major refits – in 2011, 2015 & 2021 after having completed two Atlantic crossings and South Pacific, North Pacific, and West Coast of North America cruising totaling over 70,000nm. DOROTHEA III recently completed an Atlantic and South America circumnavigation including cruising the fjords of southern Chile and Argentina. She offers accommodations for up to 9 guests in 4 staterooms plus a gym and sleeps up to 9 crew. Notably, she features the ultimate private owner’s deck, with a stateroom, en suite, and sitting room located on the bridge deck. DOROTHEA III is equipped with a single propeller, which offers benefits such as 35% fewer emissions, lower maintenance, and increased safety with two separate engine rooms. She consumes only 26.4 gallons per hour at 10 knots, giving her a range of over 6,000 nautical miles. 


The 2015 Pershing Express 70’ STAR is in impeccable condition and waiting for her new owner. Pershing’s distinctive “wings” blends style and leading-edge technology. Pershing’s STAR features sleek lines and contemporary Italian décor, and include several gathering places which makes her ideal for family and friends. Comfortable accommodations are provided for 6 guests in 3 en suite staterooms, including a full-beam master, VIP and a twin.

Uniquely styled and a true head-turner, this world cruiser with an Asian-inspired décor accommodates 10 guests in 5 luxurious en suite staterooms. In Japanese philosophy there are five elements, of which MIZU, or water, is one.
