The magnificent 189-foot sailing yacht Marie personifies heart and soul—she was conceived with love and a profound sense of purpose and spirit. This lovely yacht is owned and operated by the Bosarge Family Office, a business enterprise in Houston, Texas where Ed and Marie Bosarge are directors. Built at the Vitters Yard in The Netherlands with extraordinary Dutch craftsmanship, she is a yacht to stand the test of time. Designed by André Hoek Designs, with an interior by David Easton Designs, Marie is a successful combination of classic lines and modern performance. This book follows the build of Marie from inception to completion and includes fabulous artistic photography from all phases of the construction to the christening of the boat, to charters aboard and international sailing regattas. The book is sprinkled with quotes and input from the owners and their build team and family and friends.
