The CHRISTINA was originally launched in 1997 as My Lynn and has been continually updated by her current owner. She features a Jack Hopewell Tower, master stateroom forward with ensuite head and full shower, a guest stateroom to port as well as crew quarters with over/under bunks to starboard and full head.  The interior is classic Merritt teak throughout with many upgrades. A new teak deck and full mezzanine with new refrigeration and dual freezers was installed in 2018. The bridge was upgraded in 2022-23 with new electronics varnish stripped and refinished. All exterior varnish was stripped and refinished in 2022 as well as full paint job at Merritt’s in 2019. In 2002 both engines were rebuilt by a Caterpillar dealer with 2015 hours on them.

REMARKS

CHRISTINA is a true fish raising world traveler having just returned from Bermuda fishing the summer season 2023. Built by Roy Merritt and his experienced crew to take you to remote locations with economy and comfort. With reliable Cat Power and back-up systems throughout, CHRISTINA has been painstakingly refit to travel and fish big game or light tackle for marlin and tuna anywhere offshore.  Upgraded, refit and maintained by Merritt Boat and Engine Works, she must be seen to be fully appreciated. Too many upgrades and improvements since 2018 to mention. Come see for yourself this classic, rugged, stylish fishing machine, she turns heads in every port she enters.
