Quite possibly the smartest and most capable sailing yacht on the planet! Built in 2006 to take on all of the world’s oceans in absolutely safety and comfort, she still offers sparkling sailing performance. MARLIN is truly unique and an exciting opportunity now exists to take ownership of this sparkling red-hulled thoroughbred and embark on new world-girdling adventures. FURTHER COMMENTS: MARLIN is a Robert Perry designed aft cockpit pilots saloon cutter, built in aluminium by one of the very best names in the business – Yachtbouw Folmer in Holland. Launched in 2008, she was designed specifically for the most demanding blue water adventures in both hot and cold climates. With a multitude of collision bulkheads, she is virtually unsinkable, yet through clever design and design specification, she remains an enjoyable and nimble yacht to sail – something that is often left out when configuring expedition yachts such as this. Her owner reports that she will easily sail at up to 8 knots to windward, 8-9.5 knots on a reach and 7-8 knots downwind. She has also seen 16 knots on the log surfing in heavy seas. With over 60,000 miles under their belts, the current owners and their young family were most of the way through an audacious circumnavigation started in 1999, taking in Cape Horn, Antarctica, the Pacific and South Africa aboard their steel-hulled Scorpion II ‘IRON LADY’ before coming across MARLIN in Suriname in 2012. Since taking ownership of MARLIN, her new owners have comprehensively worked through every system and element of her structure to get her 100% ready for further adventures. They are now coming towards the end of their lifetime adventure so it is time to find MARLIN a new custodian to take full advantage of her enormous capabilities.
