Here we have a 1993 Shetland Black Marlin 23 with a BMW 5-cylinder 150hp diesel inboard engine.
The boat is tidy throughout and the vendor is now selling because he has a new boat. He has owned the boat for approximately 2 years and has only used it occasionally during this time. The hour meter doesn’t work now but a logbook shows the hours were 1325 around the time the current owner bought it and it hasn’t done many more hours since then. In December 2019 the vendor replaced the engine oil and filter and the engine and engine bay are clean.
The specification includes:
BMW 5-cylinder 150hp diesel inboard engine
Shaft drive with rope cutter
Bathing platform with outboard bracket
Full canopy with rear window
Wheelhouse enclosure cover
Radar (quick release for passing underneath bridges)
Single windscreen wiper (stbd has been removed)
Twin fuel tanks (approx. 227 litres)
Fresh water tank (approx. 100 litres)
