Bay of Islands
The Markline 1300 is renown for being a super solid, stable family cruiser, whose sturdy design has withstood the test of time and is still a popular kiwi family boat today.
This is a really solid boat in a sea way, with a generous beam that gives it additional stability. The twin engines are shaft driven and make this boat easy to manoeuvre and park. This boat is an awesome costal cruiser and would make a great liveaboard.
Dual Helm stations have controls over autopilot, anchor and chart plotter at each. The galley is light & bright, on the port side down with a generous stove and fridge freezer space. There is plentiful storage throughout this boat, both inside and in the cockpit. The boarding platform is spacious with easy water access. The 2 cabins can sleep 6 between them.
This boat is a real entertainers boat, with a great layout. There is a proper homely lounge with a really nice relaxing feel. Sun pours in through large windows on to lovely new carpet.
This boats big volume makes it a great platform for having all your friends around at the end of a busy day enjoying the sunshine on the water. Multiple areas to entertain include the half enclosed flybridge which features a bar fridge and plentiful drink holders, with enclosing clears opening out to a sunny area aft.
