MARINUS – A Peek Down Below
The 46’ launch Marinus was designed by A. Deeming and built by Barr Brown (Wellington) in 1946. Over the years she has undone several rebirths, starting as a bridge decker and the most recent one has in her owners words “converted it into a modern style displacement cruiser’. Lots of time and $$ have been spent on her and she presents these days as a high-end wooden launch.
The level of the work and presentation probably helping her be the fastest selling woody in the last 12 months – less than a week on the market.
Some specs- 46’ x 12’4’ x 4’ – her hull is heart kauri, carvel planked and in the 2019 refit play/glass has been utilised. Marinus is powered by twin Cummins 85hp Diesel engines.
As sold she was very highly spec’ed and in my eyes excellent value for a vessel her size.
Lots of photos and chat on this previous WW story – https://waitematawoodys.com/2020/12/12/marinus-where-is-she/
