    Ultima III

    In design very similar to Excellence III also the same dimensions : 188 ft. She was seen here (both photos) at the IYCA in Antibes, August 2003.

    Ultima III - interior

    I like the design of the yacht, but I don't like the blue colour around her windows. If it was black I would liked her much more.

    I saw her once in the IYCA, Antibes on 28 July 2001. I will attache a picture of her stern. The garage door was half open.

    Is there anything known about her interior? I have never seen a single picture of it!

    I may be obtaining interior pics on several launches from Abeking. I'll be speaking with them next week and I'll ask if they can release anything on Ultima III. :)

    I saw Ultima III in Viareggio and Portofino last summer. Here she is at the port of Viareggio. The photo shows how she dwarfs all the little boats in the harbour. In pictures like these you can appreciate the size of a 180' yacht again. Lying at the IYCA next to one of the giants it's a different story...

    Here she is lying in front of Portofino. She was there together with Excellence III. It was nice to compare the two yachts. In my opinion Excellence III looks slightly better. Maybe because of her blue hull color, but she just looks a bit "more high quality".
