This may be too late, but we are currently cruising on a Mariner 39. Absolutely great blue water boat. This boat has been to Tahiti, Alaska, and Peru, etc.

Lots of room, really, for two people and probably more.

Well found boat, sails well for a cruiser.

Also check out the Mariner Owners Net. Forgotten the web address so use Google.

Good luck.

MARINER 39

I am about a month late with advice, but here it goes anyway.

We looked at a Mariner 41 in So. Calif. I don''t know if there is much difference between the 39 and the 41. We settled on an Island Trader 41. Same layout as the Mariner. I would say that the Mariner would have the same overall sailing characteristics as our Island Trader and we think she sails great! She is great in big swells and is very comfortable. I was 260 pounds when we bought the boat and had no "cramped" feelings anywhere in the cabin. I have since dropped 60 pounds and think the place is a palace! The mariner we looked at was wooden. Our IT is Fiberglass. Go for the fiberglass if you can find it!!!!!! So many people think our boat is wooden. It has grooves in the hull that look like wood planks. All the looks, less hassle. I originally wanted a wood boat, but am happy with the fiberglass. Besides, the masts are wood, the bowsprit, all that exterior woodwork, teak decks...there is plenty of wood to care for.

Hope this helps.

Paul

If you mean the New England-built Mariner 39, check out www.sailnamaste.com. It is the story of a couple doing a multi-year major refit of a Mariner 39 in preparation for a long cruise. Good web-site!

Hi
We were formerly the aforementioned "Namaste"... now named Zora. www.sailzora.com.
Highly recommend Mariner 39s if in good condition. Don't worry about some comments posted here and elsewhere. These are New England built boats, totally different from the Far East built ones. They are very strong, have external lead keel, not shoal draft as some have implied. Ours took us Maine to South America and back and we plan to take her 'round the world.

Go to sailzora.com cool site. They spent almost 2 years on their Mariner 39.
