Turtle, a 1979 Marshall Catboat built in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts, is a very well built, maintained, and sailed fiberglass catboat that has been sailing Maine waters for many years. Her current owners have sailed her around Mount Desert Island for several seasons, taking exceptional care of her, including varnished woodwork, new main sail and interior cushions, and annual engine maintenance and upgrades. A traditional, stable, and beautiful classic cat to daysail and cruise!
