According to Irish agents MGM Boats of Dun Laoghaire Harbour, Jeanneau has been developing its successful Merry Fisher Marlin line and a redesign is promised for the 2022 season.

Its name is evolving too, and will now be known as the Merry Fisher Sport, reflecting the boat adaptability for multiple outdoor activities.

"A priority has been given to greater exterior space and more comfortable cruising, sheltered from the elements, which will be very welcome in Irish waters", Gerry Salmon of MGM Boats told Afloat.

The latest of this generation is the Merry Fisher 795 Sport Serie2, which benefits from some major innovations.

This new boat offers large living areas and an excellent flow of movement due to deeply recessed side decks for safe passage between the aft and forward cockpits.

The forward cockpit offers an unequalled level of comfort aboard a boat of this size, as this vast space, safe for fishing, can be transformed easily into a forward saloon for the family or a
sundeck.

The new hull is compatible with engines starting at 150 HP and up to 250 HP maximum engine power, for even more fun.

Go ahead Dublin yacht and boat broker MGM Boats are busy in their homeport of Dun Laoghaire Harbour displaying the latest Jeanneau Merry Fisher Marlin 605 for the 2021 boating season.

The proudly displayed new French marque is turning heads from its display point at the entrance to Dun Laoghaire Marina at its price point of €53,690 inc VAT.

The Merry Fisher line is well known in Ireland. Merry Fishers distinguish themselves by their extreme versatility, allowing them to be used 100% for fishing as its name suggests or 100% for cruising.

They are popular powerboats for family coastal cruises and can be seen in most Irish harbour around the coast, including Dun Laoghaire.

Jeanneau's Merry Fisher 605 Marlin represented in Ireland by MGM Boats in Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin has been named Best of Boats 2019 in the “Best for Fishing ” Category in the International Best of Boats Awards.

This prize is awarded by a jury composed of 19 European journalists from cruising magazines.

The Merry Fisher 605 Marlin was presented to the public last September at the Grand Pavois in La Rochelle, France.

The high-performance hull, the layout, and the ergonomic design for fishing make this an extremely easy to handle and safe boat. First and foremost, its design has been carefully studied for fun, sporty outings.

Bangor Town Regatta 2021

It’s expected that the fleet will number upwards of 60 with several hundred crew and supporting visitors for the 2021 Regatta.

Among the classes expected are IRC, Sigma 33, RS Elite, and day boats such as Waverleys and Fairies.

The Regatta Chairman is Gavin Watson and Royal Ulster Yacht Club is the organising club for what is Northern Ireland's biggest inshore yacht racing event.

Feeder races from Dun Laoghaire and Scotland are planned.

The Bangor Town Regatta fleet will race out of the Bangor Marina, on what is Belfast Lough’s enviable area of virtually tide and hazard free waters.

Two round-the-buoys courses within a manageable distance from the marina will provide testing but enjoyable racing and in addition, coastal races every day will give those who prefer
somewhat more leisurely competition, the opportunity to use the whole of the Lough.

Racing will be in the capable hands of International Race Officer and National Judge, local man Robin Gray.

The Race Office will be located at the Marina close to where the après sailing will be well catered for.

At A Glance - Bangor Town Regatta 2024

Belfast Lough's Bangor Town Regatta runs from 27th to 30th June and is hosted by the Royal Ulster Yacht Club.
