by Malcolm MacLean
Diego Marroquin in the New York office of Edmiston & Company and Merle Wood of Merle Wood & Associates have signed a joint central agency agreement for the sale of Ultima III. Built in 1998 by Abeking & Rasmussen for a well-known cosmetics magnate, this 57.3m motor yacht has entertained many well-known people on board, including rock star Jon Bon Jovi, Hollywood studio mogul Harvey Weinstein and ex USA President Gerald Ford. And there’s entertainment space aplenty, as Ultima III’s vast sundeck encompasses over half the length of the yacht. She accommodates 16 guests in eight cabins, plus two staff in one cabin. Her cruising speed is 15.5 knots and she is currently available for inspection in St Barth’s.
