Made in Chelsea, filmed on Mariner III

In the heat of August, the producers of the popular British reality series Made in Chelsea chartered Mariner III to film part of the season finale of Made in Chelsea New York.

We welcomed a production crew and cast of around 70 people. Filming took place on the Hudson with the Freedom Tower as backdrop during the afternoon. As dusk fell we moved south for some sequences in front of the Statue of Liberty, finally filming the night sequences near the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.

The boat had been rigged with Made in Chelsea’s trademark fairy lights. Once night had fallen, these gave the boat a beautiful glow that looks great in the finished show.

You can see the whole show on YouTube, below. If you are in a hurry, the Mariner III shots start at 33:45. Enjoy!

Remembering 9/11 2014

We were out on the river on Thursday night and got a fine view of the lights reminding us of September 11th 2001.

Birthday Party in Greenwich, CT

Mariner III is pictured leaving the dock for a birthday cruise. The party was already in full swing and our photographer reports that it could be heard clearly from the dock!

Our client invited a boat full of friends and family to celebrate her fiftieth birthday. Her verdict on returning much later that night? “I had such a good time” she said with a big smile.

Our chef prepares the party food fresh on the day. There’s no reheating, our food is fresh and wholesome. We can serve anything from buffet snacks to a multiple course, sit down dinner. The choice is yours. We will work with you (or your event planner) to deliver the finest food, suitable for your event.

Drinks are essential at a party and we can offer you a full range of drink services. From juices and sodas only, through to a full premium bar service with cocktails, liquor, wine and beer. The choice is yours.


We can happily accomodate a DJ or a small live band.
