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)
The idea of combining volume and performance is about as old as boatbuilding itself. But sometimes the execution just brings the mix to a precise level that will stop you in your tracks. Check out the 26-knot Sunseeker 95, and see how she came about.
