DOROTHEA III is a 45 meter Expedition Yacht that has been designed to explore the World's remote regions while being self-sufficient and leaving a low carbon foot print.  She defines the latest "Nero Green" trend with  timeless design and full luxury interior.  The approach to building the vessel was designed around the principles of the reliability and savings of a commercial vessel while offering the fascination and freedom of yachting.
