"MIRIAM" IS A CLASSIC FANTAIL MOTOR YACHT

Formerly Registered With The Classic Yacht Association

In The " Vintage Yacht"  Category

BUILT BY

J.M. MARTINAC

Offered for the first time in almost thirty years. “Miriam” is a classic Ted Geary Style 1946 (post war) 79ft. Fantail Motor Yacht. She was constructed in the Pacific Northwest by J.M. Martinac Shipyard in Tacoma WA. The current owner has been going through a continuous 26-year refit to bring Miriam to its current level. Updates include extensive woodwork, bright work and now mechanical reworking. The owner personally maintained the boat cosmetically to the highest of standards.  Interior and exterior finishes should be considered exceptional. She features at deck level a large airy salon, followed by a galley and dining area. There is a raised Pilothouse with access to weather decks port and starboard.  Below decks are four staterooms and four heads (refer to accommodations) with Fore & Aft  access to the walk-in engine room.

In 1972 Miriam was converted from a single engine vessel to a twin screw Caterpillar powered Motor Yacht by Floating Marine Ways, Inc.
