The Marimba 2

35' Marimba Offshore Cruising Cutter

  • Year: 1997
  • Hull Material: Composite
  • Engine/Fuel Type: Single Diesel
  • Her designer (a Naval Architect) tested the hull design concepts by building a 28 foot predecessor (Marimba 1) and then sailing her extensively (and very successfully) offshore. He incorporated all he learned into the 2nd generation - saying that essentially "Marimba 2" was designed at sea."
  • She was built by the Jespersen's yard in Sidney, B.C. Canada. This is one of the most respected boat builders in North America.
  • All of her metal fabrication (keels, rudders etc) was done by Chris Eldridge one of Canada's top metal fabricators.
  • Her Hull's three sixteenth inch thick fiberglass sheathing (also covered with Dynel in the under body plus up to one foot above the waterline). This gives her many of the advantages of a fiberglass boat while still retaining the strength, warmth, quietness and ambience of a wooden vessel.
  • Every concept of the design has been proven to work brilliantly in the only testing ground that matters OFFSHORE.
  • The previous owner made a very successful trip to Australia and back.
  • This is a purpose built vessel for living abroad and crossing any of the world's oceans swiftly and in comfort and safety.
