Making Waves: Utopia III Featured in the Miami International Boat Show

The ocean has always been an important part of my life and the source of much curiosity and inspiration for me. Having studied to be an oceanographer, I was always fascinated by the sea and by the different boats I encountered. Today my connection with the sea is experienced through my luxury yacht Utopia III – but like all things this must change with the times.

Technology continues to drive the evolution of yachting and the designs we see today are breathtaking both in terms of their form and function. Loren and I are so excited to be a part of this yachting renaissance as we prepare to take ownership of our next yacht – Utopia IV.

This 63.6 meter custom vessel is a technological marvel from RossiNavi, and will be ready for us by the end of 2017. After much discussion Loren and I decided to make room for our new yacht by saying goodbye to our beloved flagship, Utopia III.

Utopia III is a signature Miami sight and was prominently featured in JLo’s “I Luh Ya Papi” music video. This impeccably maintained nautical masterpiece is being featured in the Miami International Boat Show this week, providing the right buyer with a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Miami royalty.

This beautiful Trinity yacht sports an amazing pedigree from a quality American shipyard and was designed to maximize speed, space, stability, and comfort while avoiding rigorous restrictions and flagging requirements. Having had its hull laid in the U.S. means you will always be able to return to the U.S. without paying duty as U.S. goods returned! This gallant lady is a testament to U.S. craftsmanship and offers an unmatched value.

Utopia III’s hull and superstructure are made from quality marine grade aluminum from Trinity – a company widely known for their superb aluminum work and excellent stout oil industry supply vessels. Overall, it’s a huge amount of boat for the hull length with a 28′ beam – and the amenities are also second to none. Just wait until you see the attention to detail with our 5 staterooms!

This floating palace has had the same master engineer for 10 years and you can see the pride he takes in his work when you visit our immaculate engine room.  You can also view the Captain’s notes on the last 4 years of shipyard periods, where you’ll find that just last month we gave her everything she needed for a full shipyard period. No skimping, no cutting corners. That’s what it takes to properly maintain a yacht of this caliber. From stem to stern this entire vessel has been maintained with the highest level of diligence and care – and it shows.

Aside from being a brilliantly crafted Trinity yacht, Utopia III has hosted countless Miami and NYC events with celebrities and top influencers over the past several years, and you’re invited to experience this amazing craft for yourself this week at the Miami International Boat Show at Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin!

Utopia III is much more than an elegant Miami hallmark, it’s the source of many happy memories for us as well as our friends and UnFranchise owners who’ve also had the opportunity to experience this remarkable boat as we hosted company functions and retreats over the years. Its next buyer will not only be acquiring a top of the line yacht but also a symbol of success and the American dream.

If you’re interested in learning more about this amazing vessel, feel free to reach out to our brokers Northrop & Johnson at (954) 522-3344.

Keep Growing!
