A classic Grady-White model, the 300 Marlin is an updated version of the 280 Marlin built in 198994. The 300 has been the recipient of several updates over the years. Teardrop cabin windows replaced the original rectangular windows in 1999, and the transom was redesigned in 2004 with a larger fish box and a removable cooler box. Max horsepower ratings have also changed as engines became heavier and more powerful. With her tank-like construction and seaworthy deep-V hull, the Marlin more than holds her own against any competitive boat. Standard features include an integrated swim/dive platform, 30-gallon standup livewell, rigging station with tackle drawers, insulated fish box, cockpit rod storage, cockpit toe rails, aft-facing jump seat, transom door, raw-water washdown, cockpit bolsters, gunnel rod holders, and foldaway rear seat. Below deck, the Marlins well-finished cabin sleeps four and includes a full-service galley with fridge, enclosed head/shower, midcabin double berth, and convertible dinette/V-berth forward. No lightweight, the Marlin tops out at close to 40 knots with Yamaha 250s. Used Marlins are nearly always in demand.
