  1. This Pacific Northwest builder is no longer in production, but I hope some YachtForums readers might be able to give me some background information.

    You can check with the guys at J&G Marine Supply in Tacoma they are still in business on the boat yard property. Ask for Don.
  4. Travler,
    What year and size was your boat? I know Jones Goodell used some hulls provided by Westport and Nordlund, did they do the actual build of the steel boat?

    Thats my grandpa!

    Hi- My grandpa is Les Jones, of Jones-Goodell. My uncle is still in the boat bussiness, as is my second cousin. My grandpas brother, Don, is retired but still living. Did you still have any questions? My grandpa died when I was very young but my mom grew up at the boat yard and in the water, and my uncle is very present in the building world.

    more info

    I did find out some more info ...
    looks like it was designed by
    Lynn Senour (who was in fact responible for the marlineers as well)
    the plans are labeled

    New Marlineer /Delta 50
    and signed by Senour
    but definatley doc. ed as a jones goodell

    I guess ,I am curious how this came about
    or if that is common for a custom boat to be documented with the yards/builders name
    but not the designer /architect
    i had assumed the boat was designed by goodell
    but it looks like maybe not confusing

    :confused::confused:
    there must be a story here somewhere!

    You may already be aware of most of this... It's one of the last built of the Marlineer line of sportfishers and one of only a few with a molded fiberglass hull. Most of them were wood. There's another (possibly the only other) fiberglass hull Marlineer for sale on Yachtworld. It's a 40' built on a Willard hull and it's located in San Jose del Cabo/Cabo San Lucas, MX.

    Your boat is a Delta hull, built at the Jones-Goodell yard by Ted Tate who built boats under contract at various yards - all under the brand name Marlineer.

    Ted and his brother Tim owned a Cadillac dealership and were prominent in the southern California sportfishing community out of Newport Beach. In the early 1960's they were part of a group of fishermen who were the first to travel on their sportfishers to the tip of baja "the cape" at that time an unspoiled Cabo San Lucas, MX.

    As far as I can recall your boat has always been home ported in southern California. It's been in San Diego for many years at the Kona Kai on Shelter Island, and years ago I would see it in Cabo from time to time.

    Thanks RER,

    I was am pretty sure that it was one maybe the only all glass 50
    I was not aware of the newport beach connection ,pretty cool for me as i grew up sailing and fishing in newport harbor even drove the shore boat at NHYC for a spell ,pretty strong roots there for me .
    I have always loved the plywood marlineers there is still a very nice one in newport that somebody restored very nicely and it is awesome

    thanks again for that info , i was just hoping to find some more info on how many were built andif theres any more , every little bit helps

    thanks again

    should have the boat back to newport in a few months ,she needs a bit of work but i feel its definatley worth it
