Classic Runabout Restored

Marlin is a 1959 runabout built on a traditional plank frame construction with cedar planking over mahogany saw frames.  An engine update was preformed in the late 1960, but was removed during 2019 refit and completely.  

Marlin has an open yes cockpit with a small cuddy cabin forward and a flush fore deck, laid in teak.  Superstructure is built from mahogany and remain in perfect condition to this day including original hardware.

During an extensive 18 month refit this rare Prowler was brought back to current ABYC standards.  All electrical systems were upgraded and/or replaced.  The engine was rebuilt.  A custom designed and fabricated swim platform was added.  the open cockpit layout was upgraded to additional rear seating.  A new marine head was added.  All bright mahogany was stripped, faired, stained and newly varnished.
