Marnie is one of the best examples of what a bluewater passagemaker should be. She was custom built by Salthouse Brothers, one of New Zealand’s finest custom builders, and designed by Al Mason who is one of the most highly regarded cruising designers in the world.   John Salthouse told a prospective purchaser who contacted him in 2012 that it was the best yacht he’d ever built. The current owner has had her for 15 years.

Exceptionally strong, beautifully finished and maintained to the highest standard, Marnie is a very special classic that is in a class of her own. Marnie’s first owner crossed the Atlantic and Pacific and cruised in Europe, the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. Her second and current owner recently completed a circumnavigation. He has spent the extra personal time and money to keep her in top mechanical and cosmetic condition. The result of his loving care, upgrades and improvements is a yacht ready to move aboard and cruise the world.

 

Marnie’s replacement cost today would exceed $2.5m to build to the same level of quality, workmanship and engineering. Her construction used kauri, one of the world’s strongest woods. Over 15000 board feet of kauri was taken from one tree to build Marnie.  An example of the longevity of kauri is a bowl made from kauri that came out of the ground and was carbon dated to 6,000 years old, displayed on his dining table.
