Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

Hi Sharon,

I am interested in hearing your experience with the Marcos 39. My partner and I are looking for a dependable and seaworthy vessel to live-aboard in the Pacific Northwest. We plan to outfit the boat while living aboard and cruising locally, and eventually sail the South Pacific and onwards.

How did the boat handle under sail? Was she a slug in light air? How much wind did she need to get up to 6 knots? How did she perform to windward? How about off the wind? How did she behave in heavy seas? Was it a comfortable ride or did she pound?

I understand that the interiors were mostly custom so I won't bother to ask about the accommodations. Were there any problems with the MC that I should look out for when inspecting the boat?

We are hoping to look at a 1981 MC 39 for sale in BC. It seems to be a very well maintained one-owner vessel. The price is $50,000 CAD. Does that seem reasonable?

Thank you for your help!

- Mike
