s/y Marie - star of the sea




In planning Marie, the owners, experienced yachtsmen, chose to make use of the successful cooperation between Vitters Shipyard, Hoek Design and Nigel Ingram, a team that also worked together on the sailing yachts Adèle and Erica XII. Hoek, Hamming and Ingram all concur that because they had worked on these two previous builds together, Marie benefited from a natural progression and improvement of systems. Ruurt Meulemans, technical director and partner in Hoek Designs, and Vitters’ project manager Erik Bos were hands-on during all three yacht builds. This was another plus in the efficiency of the build. As the saying goes, "third time’s a charm."
