Marlin has not cut corners on its 35-footer. In fact the boat successfully combines a performance edge with traditional offshore fishing ability. It’s a center console designed expressly for the angler who wants both speed and stability, along with a friendly price tag.
Marlin uses a 1/4” thick high-density foam core made of pre-expanded polyester resin filled with hollow microspheres. The foam is sprayed between the layers of mat and woven roving. In addition to creating a rigid hull, the foam is lightweight. It affects the displacement of this 35 footer, which is almost one-third less than other center consoles its size. And lighter weight can put a few more mph on the top end.
The 350 is designed from the keel up for outboard power. The fiberglass engine bracket is an ensign of the running bottom. Box stringers – which extend from the bow to the aft end of the bracket – strengthen the one-piece configuration. Longitudinals are fiberglass-encapsulated sprayed foam core. The hull is a deep-V with 24 degrees of deadrise at the transom, yet lateral stability is good, thanks to a 9’4” beam.
With her twin 300 Mercury outboards the tops out at over 50 mph and cruises comfortably at 34 mph around 4,000 rpm.
Hydraulic steering makes the bot easy to handle and steer even into and out of tight turns.
The center console features a flat top for add-on electronics. For units that aren’t splash-proof, there’s a large vertical area for flush-mounted electronics. Marlin also makes it easy to do the wiring. The console interior is very roomy and comfortable to work in.
Abaft the console, a molded fiberglass module serves a variety of functions. A padded seat is standard. This boat has the optional back rest for more comfort. Inside the module is a 50-gallon circulating live well with large, radiuses corners, plus a separate backup pump. And there’s a large six-drawer tackle box built into each side.
If you want to bring home the bacon after a successful day on the water, two 4-foot long by 1-foot wide lift-out fish boxes are built into the cockpit sole. They are standard along with four angled rod holders in the gunwales. The transom interior is set up very practically. Three hatches in the forward bulkhead offer access to batteries (mounted at cockpit level, not in the bilges), switches and bilge pumps. Across the transom top, there’s a saltwater wash down and a bait-prep station with a freshwater sink and faucet.
Since the 350 is designed for the angler, the trunk cabin is low enough so the helmsman can see fishing action ahead. This keeps the interior modest, although it’s suitable for an overnight trip if you don’t mind roughing it. V-berth layout.
