MARLIN MIST – A Peek Down Below
The 34’ woody – Marlin Mist, was built by Shipbuilders c.1960, she has a beam of 9’6” and draws 3’. Being a Shipbuilders vessel she is built like a brick s house i.e. triple diagonal kauri (glassed over….)
Powered by a Nissan SD33 80hp Diesel engine (Moon Engines) that gives her a comfortable cruising speed of 7 knots.
Owned and restored by a boat builder the quality of the workmanship and level of presentation is faultless. Thanks to Ian McDonald for the tme heads up.
Can we expand on her past life?
