The Mauretania, originally named the Marilyn, was built by Trumpy & Sons for
Colonel Frederick Pope and launched in 1947. In her early years, the Marilyn changed hands and homeports several times. She left the east coast in 1979, crossed through the Panama Canal, and settled in Southern California. Here, she was renamed Mauretania, in honor of the RMS Mauretania, a famed Blue Riband-winning Cunard ocean liner of the early 20th century. Under the watchful management of her current owners, and the expertise of Wilmington Iron Works, she is maintained meticulously to ensure that every historical detail remains intact and accurate. In the process, many of the original equipment vendors have been located and sourced. Simultaneously, she has been upgraded with a bounty of behind-the-scenes modern conveniences and safety features and is continuously inspected and maintained to the highest U.S. Coast Guard standards and regulations. From her rich mahogany interiors, to her cutting edge galley, to the trademark Trumpy scroll that bejewels her bow, the Mauretania was, and still is today, a once-in-a-lifetime yachting experience.

Special events held aboard the Mauretania are truly just that. Filled with the romance and adventure of a bygone, glamorous era, the Mauretania is a unique and memorable entertainment experience. By limiting guests to 50 people, the yacht provides an enchanting setting for intimate affairs wherein every guest is treated with exceptional, white-gloved service and attention to detail. Full bar and catering services are tailored specifically to each event.
