Merry Fisher 605 MarlinThe new Merry Fisher 605 Marlin adopts the well-known hull and all the equipment of the Merry Fisher 605. It is more typical of a fishing boat with priority given to getting around outside, with a larger cockpit and especially a deep, recessed starboard side deck, to easily get forward.

The space offered on board is the utmost for this size boat. TheMerryf Fisher 605 Marlin wheelhouse is on the same level as the cockpit. There is a very deep cockpit, made secure by handrails, and also a short overhang to be able to cast your lines without being concerned about the roof. And if desired it is possible to extend the cockpit aft with two large optional bathing platforms, also equipped with a swim ladder.

Optionally, this wheelhouse can be equipped to close in two ways: the first is a simple canvas that rolls up and stows under the roof, and the second is to have sliding glass doors, as found on the other models in the Marlin line.

One advantage of a fully open wheelhouse is the easy access to the forward storage area which has several lockers, including a large waterproof locker located in the center, which is lockable with a padlock.

On this new Merry Fisher 605 Marlin, Jeanneau presents a new sliding helm design. The helm can of course be setMerry Fisher 605 Marlin inside the wheelhouse, but it can also be set outside the wheelhouse nearer to the fishing action. The system is very simple: the instrument panel and helm unlock, and with the seat turned, the unit slides all the way aft.

If desired, the boat can be equipped with one or two bolster seats, with a pilot seat on an adjustable telescoping support. The cockpit is equipped with a 7 inch Garmin display, but there is plenty of room for a larger screen. The cockpit gets ventilation through this sliding window. Further ventilation is provided by a porthole located in the forward cabin bulkhead and also by a roof hatch.

The Merry Fisher 605 Marlin is built for outboard engines. It is very efficient and very pleasant with the largest engine, which is 115 horsepower.
