Special Remarks

"Marazul" features many desirable features not commonly found on yachts under 120’; such as an on-deck master stateroom plus four guest staterooms (US built for easy US charter-ability), transoceanic range, walkaround decks with a 24’ beam, the ability to carry a multitude of water toys and a large cockpit to accommodate serious watersports (including a state-of-the-art SCUBA air compressor).

She has been expertly refit, painted, and redecorated in 2007/2008 and is ready to cruise in all aspects. Experienced yachtsmen will appreciate the heavy aluminum construction and ageless, good looking design.

She affords a unique opportunity to purchase a fine sea-keeping yacht that cannot be duplicated today at triple the price.
