Timeless and eye-catching, MARLIN DEL REY V was designed by naval architects Tony Castro and Ron Holland and built by Lürssen in 1993. The yacht's current owner has continually updated her, to ensure her great condition. As one of the finest sailing yachts of her size, MARLIN DEL REY V showcases the stability and luxuriousness of a motor yacht as well as impressive sailing performance.
MARLIN DEL REY V is one of the finest sailing yachts of her size, boasting the spaciousness and luxury of a motor yacht with excellent sailing performance. The yacht has a notable pedigree that includes a timeless design by naval architects Tony Castro and Ron Holland, a sophisticated interior by Ken Freivokh and esteemed craftsmanship by builder Lürssen. With the assistance of her first owner, a longtime yachtsman, who had owned several world-class sailing yachts, MARLIN DEL REY V was built to unparalleled standards. The yacht's second (and current owner) has upgraded the yacht continually to ensure her condition.
This ketch sailing yacht rig sets over 8,300 square feet (750 sqm) of sail, which can be increased by another 6,400 square feet (600sqm) when sailing downwind. MARLIN DEL REY V is an exceptionally stable vessel. She heels no more than 20 degrees when close-hauled and carrying full sail in Beaufort Force 6 and associated sea conditions. This is achieved primarily to her larger than average, 30-foot (9.2m) beam and low resistance, large volume bulb keel, and close attention to weight calculations by Lürssen.

Without question, one of the finest sailing yachts of her size. The original owner, a lifelong yachtsman who owned a series of highly regarded world-class sailing yachts, instructed naval architects Tony Castro and Ron Holland to design a ketch-rigged sailing yacht to provide exceptional stability together with the comfort and spaciousness of a large motor yacht but with excellent performance under sail.
This was successfully accomplished with Marlin Delrey V offering exhilarating performance on all points of sail. The yachts present owner (her second) has upgraded Marlin Del Rey V in numerous ways, having pretty much gone through all her systems.
Lurssen's attention to detail in the construction is evident in all areas of the yacht, from a well thought out layout implemented by interior designer, Ken Freivokh, and superbly executed engine room to the overall detailed finish of the yacht.
Marlin Delrey V truly offers a rare opportunity to acquire one of the world's finest sailing yachts well below replacement cost and without the extended three-year delay of constructing a new yacht of this high quality.
