The redesigned Cape Cod Marlin Heritage combines the best of Nathanael Herreshoff’s Fish and Marlin designs with a touch of modern amenities. Her classic hull shape below the waterline remains unchanged. The comfortable cockpit is slightly smaller than the original Fish allowing more cabin space. This is a return to the era of Herreshoff when simplicity was fundamental, boats were designed for performance, built with craftsmanship and pride, and remained strikingly beautiful.
