Here's the smaller Burger....
Just saw an article in Boat International with pictures of the "new" Marlena after the redesign. It's in the Sept. '06 issue.
The 107 Burger is Sarabeth. It just came out of paint and looks fantastic. Has two flats boats, pulls a nice tender, It is one of my favorite boats.
Heesen Shipyards has built three big sportfish yachts.

Heesen's sportfishyachts have a very clean and sleek design, as a sportfishyacht should be. Thanks for the pics.

Yea...nice.....especially the one of Karyatis...Welcome to the forums as well

I belive the largest sport fishing boats are the Hessen-built "Obsession" and her sistership "Red Saphire" both at 128 ft. / 39 m.
Marlena is a 126' Trinity. Was on her a few years ago. Things that stood out were the LARGE flake ice machine on board and the size of the bait wells.
I saw 126' Trinity in Montauk. The owner sold his 126' Trinity, and he is downsizing to a 65' Viking. I would like to ride on that thing and doing an overnight at the canyons.
Just fyi, there is a short 2 page "Marlena" article with some pics in the latest issue of Destination Fish.
Welcome to YachtForums!
And thanks for the link to that article on Marlena.
It's one of the yachts from Trinity that I find to have an elegant and functional design.
Yes Sharky, welcome to YF and thanks very much for that link, I have never seen onboard the Marlena, let alone know she has a Jac!!!
I love the photo of the Marlena... Just outside Cabo if I recognise the background. Wow can you guys get your head around the long run to take a fish around the boat. Lot of running.
Last month (Nov. 2007) I spent time fishing hard on a 68 foot sportfisher and the Ummph needed to spin the boat is big. The "walk around" needed to get fwd and back is very important. Here on the Pacific we do not stay in the chair all day. We follow the fish. Big Tuna. Light Line Marlin.
There are several big Nordlund boats. Victorius. El Vato.
Nordlund makes some great fishing yachts. Real fishable. Real yacht.
Like this one...
However Cabo does draw the biggest and the best.
The winner of that catagory this year in Cabo is?
A: The big boy in Cabo recently is Mr. Terrible. Wow. 154 ft.
Just my 2 cents.
Just to throw one more into the discussion: Tom Fexas designed a 107' (112' overall) sportfish that was built by PJ's.
Just remember; It's not the size that matters, it's how you catch fish with it
Someone I know here in Egypt is building a custom 36m Sportfisher in Turkey. She is close to completion and should arrive in Egypt soon. I'll post pictures of her once she's here.
there is an earlier marlena sitting in antibes for sale. i looked after her while the owner tried,unsuccesfully to sell her. she is a 95ft lydia and used to have the title of biggest sporty boat,i think.
