Mariner is a sleek and graceful wooden cruising yawl, built to exacting standards in 1950 by the world-renowned Abeking & Rasmussen Yacht Yard. This rare classic has been lovingly maintained by the same family for more than 35 years.

Upon boarding Mariner, you will notice her beautiful teak decks, large comfortable cockpit and varnished spruce masts. Her interior is stunning mahogany complete with a full galley, private head, main salon and aft cabin/deckhouse. Immediately, you will feel at home on board and will be transported back to the warmth and romance of a former era.

Her captain and first mate will encourage you to participate in sailing as much or as little as you desire. You will have the opportunity to take the helm, assist in sail trim or just sit back, relax and sunbathe!

Mariner's versatile sail plan offers a large variety of sail combinations for sailing the lightest breeze to easily handling robust ocean conditions. She is an affordable option for corporate entertaining, pleasure sailing and family outings.

Mariner's design was commissioned by Arthur Homer, president of Bethlehem Steel Company. He sought a yacht able to cruise in comfort or race to win. The great American yacht designer, John G. Alden, sculpted her lines to satisfy these requirements and under her original name of Salmagal II, she fulfilled those goals. Throughout the years, this yacht remained the favorite of her original owner, who commissioned others both before and after her.

More than just beautiful, she is a superb performer. She has a proud history of racing victories including the coveted Marblehead-Halifax Trophy, along with many other New England honors including two-time winner of the Nantucket Opera House Cup.

This is a yacht of distinction, with her tall spruce spars, sparkling teak decks, and gleaming mahogany... she's a real head-turner in any port.
