The spectacular Retired Sailor III was the JMYS featured boat this year at the Yachts Miami Beach boat show. This annual brokerage show on Collins Avenue is normally a great location to show case a special boat like RSIII, but unfortunately this year the traffic was way down.

Jeff Merrill and Ray Danet were open for business each day and the select few people who did come aboard were blown away with the wide assortment of impressive features that Retired Sailor III boasts.

The weather cooperated, but believe attendance was down due to the new location for the NMMA show and the hassle for visitors to travel between the venues.  Apparently it was just too much and we hope that the event is better organized and better attended next year.

Jeff and Ray kept busy giving tours and based on feedback we spoke with the sellers after the show ended. The result – a dramatic reduction in price (several hundred thousand dollars) and she is now offered at only $2,750,000.00.   The other development was the discovery of an alternative layout that modifies the aft area to make it an amazing master stateroom. This is a very reasonable modification for a buyer to make and the general arrangement is available by request – just send us an email and we will send you the PDF.

All who were aboard agreed that Retired Sailor III is in exceptional condition. Her entire hull was repainted in 2015 and all of the machinery and systems have all of their service work completed and up to date.  It’s not easy to find a specialty boat like RSIII when doing a traditional internet search, but if you know about the talents of the designer, Gregory Marshall and the builder, Park Isle Marine you will appreciate what an exceptional yacht she is.

Aggressively for sale, the owners are “retired” from Retired Sailor III and someone is going to be able to purchase and amazing boat.  Please go to this link to learn more and please get in touch if you would like more details.  Retired Sailor III is available for inspection by appointment and she is now back home at the Deltaville Boatyard in Virginia.
