Marisco is reputedly one of only 12 Landfall ketches ever built. Designed by the renowned partnership of Holeman and Pye and built at Penarth boatyard in 1971. She has an extensive cruising history that encompasses Western Europe, USA, Canada and the Caribbean. Since the current owner purchased the boat in 1998 Marisco has undergone two major refits that have included new engine in 2002 and new wooden masts in 2010. Over this period of ownership the boat has been well maintained and much of the time the owner has lived aboard. Ill health has prompted the decision to sell Marisco and she is marketed well below the expected price for such a beautiful well found boat in order to move on quickly.
