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
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.
