“Dorothea III” exploring the ice shelf near Cape Horn before crossing the equator to re-visit the Galapagos Islands.
“Dorothea III” is a real ocean voyager, with successful Trans Atlantic and Trans Pacific voyages to her credit.
Built by Cheoy Lee this steel hull and composite superstructure vessel has stood the test of time, crossing the oceans with reduced fuel, maintenance and operation costs. Not sitting at the dock, like so many large yachts do.
With her large single engine and large diameter variable pitch propeller this yacht presents the most efficient way to power across the ocean. Considering the best way to ensure efficient ocean passages. I wanted to follow the latest very large container ships. Single engine and large prop is the way to go! ‘Dorothea III’ has proven this philosophy.
