The history begins in 1930s Gosport, Hampshire, England, where renowned naval architect Charles E. Nicholson designed and built a 12-metre racing boat.
Originally the Blue Marlin’s name was Hurricane. She was manufactured for actress Marlene Dietrich’s female lover Marion Barbara “Betty” Carstairs.
Unfortunately she declined to accept the “Hurricane” and sold her immediately after the boat was delivered. The yacht eventually ended up in Italian hands while being kept in Izola on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia, she began to fall into disrepair, eventually sitting disused in a harbour for several years. A Finnish banker and sailor, Henrik Andersin, found and bought the vessel, which was carefully transported from Slovenia to Finland in 2006. In its new home, the Blue Marlin is being restored to her former glory.
