Broker's Comments

The Black Marlin is the biggest in the popular Shetland range. Incredibly roomy, with a large cockpit ideal for cruising with friends and family. An attentive and competent owner has taken good care of her and her cosmetic condition is good. 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.
