Hello all Marathon Boat Owners / Group Members and/or Guests:
I just joined your Marathon Boat Group(s)... why? .....
Well, I would have to be that I am now a proud owner of a new (old) Marathon cruiser... Hopefully we can pool our boat info/knowledge together or simply reminisce about our boats and keep these discontinued cruising ladies alive.
I will upload pics, etc (If I ever figure out how to do that) and share with you the story and tales of my new (Old) Marathon Cruiser.. A classic, in mint condition, (Almost) to which I plan to keep it that way (or better).....
I'm located in Ontario, Canada and in the last three or so weeks, I have travelled almost 300 miles or so in my new 1989 Marathon 2550 Bermuda Sport cruiser - 5.7L. Mercruiser 260 H.P. with Alpha-1 drive: This boat is complete with trim tabs, camper top, teak pulpit and swim platform, swim ladder, fenders, anchor, fresh anti-fouling paint. Stove, fridge, pressure water, marine head and holding tank, shower, dinette, aft cabin, etc... Huge V-bert with lots of seatting.
This is the first boat in a long time that I found to be a larger feeling boat with all of the amenities: at an entry level price. It only took me three months (ARG!!) to find the cruiser that I have wanted for years... and it is this MARATHON.
So welcome all, to the world of my new 1989 Marathon 2550 Bermuda Sport cruiser... This trip begins on July 22, 2008 and was finalized on July 25, 2008 as the boat sale was finalized and the Marathon made its maiden voyage to my "base camp" located on the Trent-Severn waterway in Ontario Canada....
There!! The maiden post to all my new Marathon comrads is complete...but the Marathon journey, for me, has just begun...
