The judges felt that the Merry Fisher 895 Marlin, the flagship of the line is the most complete and convincing platform ever to wear the Merry Fisher name – high praise indeed. Despite being under 30ft long the design team had clearly worked hard to ensure every inch of space was put to good use.

The main deck for example, has an enlarged walkway on the starboard side thanks to an asymmetric wheelhouse alignment, which links two separate living areas. The versatile cockpit has folding benches so it can seat up to six or be left clear for fishing or water sports.

The foredeck has comfortable wrap-around seating and a point to slot in a table.

As for accommodation, the 895 Marlin has a convertible dinette in the saloon and two cabins on the lower deck it’s possible to sleep six on board.
