Merry Fisher 855 Marlin Offshore

My 3-door version of the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 855 Marlin is in excellent condition inside and out and has been very well maintained and cared for. Commissioned in 2016, the boat has only been operated for just 152 hours, and has had the 2 x Lean Burn Suzuki 200HP engines serviced annually at the local Suzuki agents.

General Overview:

The Boat;
Builder: Jeanneau
Engines: Twin Suzuki DF200TGX, with just 152 hours of use.
Location: Stored ashore in Poole (can be seen in and out of the water for complete peace of mind)

LOA - 8.25m / 27 ft
Beam - 2.97m / 9 ft 9 in
Draft - 0.56m / 1ft 10 in (engine up)
Air draft - 3.04m / 9ft 11 in

Twin Suzuki DF200TGX (2 x 200hp) 4-stroke outboards - so much easier than trying to cope with just a single when manoeuvring!
Electronic controls with keyless ignitions

Fuel capacity: 400 litres
Water capacity: 100 litres

Just some of the features;
Side doors in Pilothouse to port and starboard - helpful for docking
Rear sliding door from cabin to deck - making it easy to get between both areas, or sit in the dry whilst fishing astern in poor weather!
Complete walk around deck - great for docking or fishing
Sliding sunroof in the pilothouse
Powerful Lewmar Electric windlass with 100' of chain and around 70' of rope
Head connected to large storage tank fitted with both a macerator and deck pump-out options.
Trim tabs
240V shore power & battery charger
240V hot water system
Large storage lockers on deck
LED lights
Folding side benches to both Port and Starboard plus rear bench seat
Double tables
Seats and tables convert into a huge sunpad
Forward cockpit cushions make a comfortable two berth bedroom
Aft cabin with a single berth (three berths in total)
Additional 12V 140Ah battery - 3 batteries in total
Full side head compartment with toilet, sink and shower (hot & cold water)
12V fridge in the pilothouse
Cockpit shower
Never used as a serious fishing boat, but perfect for such a use - live bait well at rear (never used).

Loads more I could add. I also have many more photos, so just get in touch if you'd like to see or know more. Also happy to arrange viewings in Poole in and out of the water for you can see the boat for yourself.

Private sale. Genuine seller. Genuine boat. If you're looking for one of these you'll struggle to find better!!!!!!!

VAT Paid, with original purchase Bill of Sale in hand for transfer with the boat.
Full book pack and all keys as supplied new will also be supplied to the new owner in the original boat handover bag.

I may consider a smaller fishing boat, or a large Bowrider or Cuddy in PX (may even add cash for the right sports boat up to £120k). May also consider an interesting car/4x4/motorcycle - try me, you never know - ???

Transport to any part of the country can be arranged. Assistance with overseas shipping also possible with freight ferry to the Channel Islands directly from Poole (where the boat is kept), or further afield via the nearby Port of Southampton.

This is a serious boat and has Cat B certification for offshore use, this being a big step up on Cat C inshore use only that most pleasure craft come with - don't compromise when it comes to safety on the water!

NB: Buying the equivalent model of this boat today, with twin 200's would set you back over £130,000.00 - why buy the depreciation when this one should now be at the plateaux on value. This is the way to enjoy low cost boating!!!!

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SELLERS YOU CANNOT VERIFY AS GENUINE.  If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
