This dinghy is in the garage of the house we are buying. The owner does not know what it is but wants to sell it. Before I make an offer I really would like to know more about it. Does anybody know what it is and if the manufacturer is still in existence. Is there a class association for it?

It is a GRP hull with a single sail and is approx 12 foot long.

many thanks if you can enlighten me.

If its a Marlin, then:

Length: 13' 1". Beam: 5'6" Mast: 21'.

Sail area: 104 sqft (racing) or 85 (cruising). Spinnaker: 85 sq ft.

Weight: 215 lbs. Designed by Ian Proctor. Yardstick in those days (1973) was 97, when the Enterprise was 98.

Hi all, Many thanks for your help so far. I checked out both "Marlin" and "Sailfish" but they appear to be much larger. The Sailfish has a cabin!.

The boat is located in Mudeford, Christchurch, UK. here is another pic.
