Marlin Darlin is a great example of a classic Hatteras yacht. This factory high-performance version of one of the most popular Hatteras convertibles ever built. It features a beefed-up hull with balsa coring in the hull sides, shortened keel, extra transverse frames in the bottom, and larger 2 1/2" stainless steel shafts to compliment the bigger DD 8V92TI engines. . She has cruised and fished in Florida from the Bahamas to Key West since 2000. She has been  maintained and upgraded constantly during that time.   She needs some comestics but  was painted  with Awlgrip, electronics 2006 and interior was completely refurbished with teak paneling. In 2008, the hull was peeled and fiberglass to eliminate blisters, new port and starboard fix tinted windows installed and the interior was recently revamped with new fabrics, furniture, carpet & ice maker -  Bottom and running gear maintenance and new power winch for the davit was installed during a spring yard visit.  A great performer, she has been thoughtfully tweaked and provides impressive speeds with the ride of an old-school battle wagon. Custom 3-bladed propellers with spares, along with well-maintained engines and fuel system produce honest cruise speeds of 20-22 knots . Marlin Darlin    is at the dock in Fort Lauderdale and available for your personal inspection.
