Broker's Comments

The Black Marlin 23 by Forge Marine is designed for day cruising and fishing, with a large cockpit and a comfortable cabin providing good shelter from our inclement weather, as and when required. Her condition is good but she would benefit from a thorough spring clean and power polish to her hull.
It is rare to find a diesel powered, comfortable, roomy, cruising boat at this price that is also ready to sail. She is keenly priced for a quick sale.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
