I've seen what looks like a .pdf file of a brochure Lurssen has put together to advertise their new build 'Marlin'. I've seen it on some web sites. I've also read where the yacht will be available in '06 and for some reason it has no owner right now. (Didn't a similar thing happened to Feadship's Utopia?)
I was wondering 1) if anyone has a copy of the full brochure they can share and 2) does anyone know the story behind why Marlin has no owner? (Or, was she built on spec? I'd find that hard to believe but who knows)
When you’re a boat designer, you deal with all kinds of people, from hard-charging CEOs to dreamers. But they all must follow the laws of physics. Our Sightlines columnist Michael Peters lays down the law.
