Markos was a bit eccentric but he was a straight shooter and a very good boat builder.

Jon:
Not really,. It was a funny project. I designed the boat for two partners who split before the first boat was done. I got a call when the plug was being built from one of them telling me that they didn't want a bustle on the boat. I had already completed the lines and work on the plug was quite a ways along. So I removed the bustle. I have never had a client makle a request likle that before. I had sporadic contact with Markos.

They are talking about the old Markos Yachts in Coquitlam. He built your Reliance 37 - did you have any involvement at that point or was it handled by your design client?

I remember when he was building the plug for that boat - it was his last I believe.

Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

funding-the-fun: did you ever have a look at that MC39 being offered by SALT? I'm considering having a look, I've got the survey and additional pics. I'd love to compare notes with you. Please PM or Email me (I'm a new member, so I can't PM you yet).

Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

The MC 39 was built by Markos Yachts - note spelling. I bought my first hull from Markos (he never used his first name which I found out years later was Van.)

IMO when he was in business he was the best builder in Vancouver - even better than Spencers. The MC 39's he built are extremely stout & well finished. He sold mouldings as well so Caveat Emptor. He built lots of the Maple Leaf 42's for Svends yachts. He also built the Perry designed Reliance 37 which was built and marketed as a very high end boat to compete with the very best. I never heard anyone say it failed at that goal either. They remain very pricy but rare.

The 39 is based on an Al Mason design and would make a very nice long distance boat or liveaboard.

The last time I saw him was in Coal Harbour - he & his significant other were finishing offshore prepping his own 38' "Daniel K" which AFAIK was the same as the 39 but scratch built - possibly the plug.

Some time later I saw it was for sale in Florida and he was writing for GOB magazine.

One of the local race boat builders, when I mentioned I bought a hull from him, asked "Is he still building that big whale?" referring to the 39 - I don't think you can expect exciting performance from it but lots of comfort & security for sure.

Are you looking at the one with the windshield? It looks like his construction from the pics.

Edit: just saw your link - that's the one I meant. If those pics are current it's a steal at the less than $50K you might offer. It's a lot of boat.

Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

I spoke to the listing agent and he is going to send me a copy of a recent survey. Will have to take it with a grain of salt of course, but it might provide some insight.
