MARABOU 72 FT ICONIC SYDNEY CLASSIC DESIGNED BY AMERICAN ARCHITECT EDD MONK IS BACK IN THE MARKET AFTER A PROFESSIONAL AND MAJOR REFIT

THIS VESSEL WAS DESIGNED AND BUILT IN A TIME WHERE A GRACEFUL SHEER LINE WAS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE. WHEN A DESIGN HAD TO BE BALANCED AND PROPORTIONAL. SHAPES SUCH AS THIS ONLY COME FROM A VERY EXPERIENCED AND ARTISTIC DESIGNER.

UPGRADES HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT TO HIGH STANDARDS FOR THE CURRENT EXPERIENCED BOAT OWNER.
WELL IN EXCESS OF $500,00 HAS BEEN SPENT [ RECEIPTS AVAILABLE]

MARABOU HAS BEEN DE CLUTTERED - SIMPLIFIED, AND SYSTEMS FITTED TO WHERE IT IS NOW A SIMPLE AND MORE MODERN VESSEL TO OPERATE.

THOSE WHO KNOW MARABOU WILL KNOW THAT THIS VESSEL HAS BEEN THE RADIO RELAY, AND SUPPORT VESSEL FOR MANY OF THE EAST COAST, AND PACIFIC YACHT RACES OVER MANY YEARS.

SOME OF HER TRAVELS INCLUDE A TRIP FROM SYDNEY TO NEW ZEALAND, THEN ON TO TONGA, VANUATU, S CHAIN OF ISLANDS, FIJI NEW CALEDONIA, NORFOLK ISLAND, LORD HOW ISLAND AND MIDDLETON REEF. THERE HAVE ALSO MANY TRIPS UP THE EAST AUSTRALIA COAST BY A EXPERIENCED HUSBAND AND WIFE BOATING COUPLE

ED MONK WAS RENOWNED AS ONE OF THE WORLDS BEST SMALL SHIPS NAVAL ARCHITECTS, AND AN EXPERIENCED EYE WILL SEE THAT THE FULL DISPLACEMENT ROUND BILGE SHAPE IS IDEAL IN BIG CONDITIONS OFFSHORE.

PETER BRACKEN [THE BUILDER ] IS ALSO RENOWNED FOR BUILDING BEAUTIFUL AND STRONG TIMBER VESSELS THAT CAN WITHSTAND THE SEAS ON THE NSW COAST AND BEYOND.

RICHLY FINISHED IN SOLID TEAK TIMBER PANELING WITH CUSTOM DINING TABLE, WITH ASH INLAYS. PURPOSE BUILT BAR UNIT WITH LEATHER BENCH TOP, GLASS BOTTLE DRAWERS, , BUILT IN BAR FRIDGE, AND TEAK BOOK SHELVES.

TEAK AND LEATHER TESSA LOUNGE IN THE SALOON ADD TO THE COMFORT AND THE OPULENCE

DOUBLE DOORS OPEN UP FROM THE SALOON TO THE GENEROUS SIZE COCKPIT FOR ENTERTAINING OR RELAXING.


MARABOU WAS DESIGNED AND BUILT AS A SERIOUS OCEAN CROSSING VESSEL. IT IS CLEVERLY DESIGNED TO BE LOW AND STABLE, YET STILL HAVE SLEEPING CABINS BELOW, WITH OUT LOOKING LIKE A HIGH RISE BUILDING.
