Fraser Yachts and Royal Huisman present Project Marlin


A bespoke retro-classic motor yacht

Project Marlin is a 50m retro-classic motor yacht built by Royal Huisman.

She is offered for sale by Fraser Yachts. The scale model of Project Marlin has been unveiled and presented to potential clients on the Royal Huisman stand during her World Premiere at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show.


The exterior lines are designed by the renowned Frers Naval Architecture, while the elegant interior is envisioned by the creative talents of Stirling & Co Interior Design

Despite first appearances, Marlin is a very modern yacht. She combines innovative engineering and technology to create a high performance, head turning, distinctive design. She was conceived as a Gentleman’s Yacht, designed for an experienced yachtsman who understands the life on board a yacht at sea.


Marlin is essentially a private yacht designed for a discerning owner wanting to share with friends and family a sense of relaxation in her intimate interior and exterior spaces.

Her shallow draft allows her to explore small ports and bays while her maximised volume gives her the spaces and features of a larger boat, and allows her to match an owner’s spirit of adventure roaming the oceans.


Light flows freely into the interior through large windows that also give great views out while the overhangs of the exterior superstructure provide shade and privacy.


Designed to meet the requirements of LY3 she can carry up to 12 guests in five cabins, comprising a double owner’s cabin with a double VIP cabin on the main deck and two double cabins and a twin cabin on lower deck. A toplit stair connects all three decks and a passenger lift can be integrated as an optional extra. The crew quarters allows for a staff of 11 people.


Marlin will be fitted with two Caterpillar C32 Acert diesel engines, each providing 850 hp for a top speed of 17 knots. When cruising at 12 knots, the maximum range is 4,300 nautical miles.
