Another Mason – Suzy Q started out as a double diagonal hull, Marlin & later in life got a top chop.  Since these photos were taken a chrome, split glass windshield has been added. Her engine is a brand new V8 Lexus motor. Sounds & looks like she’ll do 35 knots – would be interesting with round bilge, might drift around the corners 😉

She is owned by Ryan from Pine Harbour Electrical, Ryan & his father did all the work.

  1. Tony Mason would have been pretty chuffed with this delicious creature. His heart was in flying boats.


  2. I’m sure I saw this boat on lake Rotorua about 5 months ago… it was over by the hot pools. It’s a stunner!


  3. Very interesting take on a classic hull & looks beautifully finished. — don’t really mind it actually, although its not the original classic Marlin or Clipper look. — Absolutely love all the lovely varnished mahogany & other timbers. Interesting also, with a Lexus engine — never heard of one of these in a boat before either. — presume it is a car engine home marinised — KEN RICKETTS
