Video: “MERLIN” 44′ Able Downeast Express Cruiser…FOR SALE

September 25, 2013 by chapmanyachts

“MERLIN” is an absolutely stunning sistership to the famous Able 44′ “WOLF”, but she’s faster, newer, and more beautifully detailed throughout. Originally launched in 1995 with a fairly modest Herreshoff style interior and smaller engines, her second and current owner bought her in 1998 in lieu of building a new boat. He took her back to the Able yard (her original builder) for an extensive and total refit in 1998/1999 which included extending the cockpit by 2′, new more powerful engines, all new shafts, struts, bearings and running gear. Additionally, the old interior was completely removed and a new beautiful raised panel cherry interior installed. All in all, the total cost for this refit was in excess of $800,000 above her purchase price. The result was, and still is, the most beautiful Able 44′ ever built. She is now offered for sale at an asking price of $529,000
