  • Dagger board that needs to be seen in person to appreciate its alternating stick built wood pattern.
  • Marvin produces works of art and this Melonseed is no exception.
  • An absolutely gorgeous boat that won the Best Sail and Captain's Choice awards at the 2013 Wooden Boat Show in Beaufort North Carolina. Boat is always covered and put under a boat port in the yard. In excellent condition sans a few small dock rash bumps on the rub rail, no scratches on the bottom that I can see. Always has been used in fresh water…
  • Strip planked from repurposed and reclaimed Atlantic White Cedar from a warehouse in Plymouth, NC.
  • NC mountain grown white oak for the steam bent frames with NC old growth coastal Cyprus keel deck beams and oil finished floor boards.
  • Hull is encapsulated with epoxy and glass cloth inside and out
  • A natural varnish interior with the outside hull a beautiful Awlgrip paint system dark green above the water line, below the water line a nice white with a gold stripe at the water line. Rudder color and paint scheme to match.
  • Coamings, rub rail, transom and trim are mahogany
  • The sail halyard and sprit snotter can be hoisted and tensioned from inside the cockpit. This feature is unique to Marvin’s melonseed build and eliminates the need for brailing or scandalizing the sail. The sail is hoisted up on the mast in a track. The boat can be launched with sail down and then hoisted when underway or the sail can be brought down within seconds when required.
  • Canvas Spar covers, sail bag, mast cover, dagger board cover
  • Mooring travel cover (the same one that is used on Roger’s seed’s). vAsking price is $7500 with all the above. I am located near Raleigh, NC.
  • Willing to travel around 200 miles to meet half way.
  • Pictures are from 2013, can furnish the latest 2015 pictures on request

    SOLD. thanks again for continuing to run this wonderful site.
