That boat pops up every now an then. I do not think it is a Marinette.
The Port and Starboard extension of the salon onto the gunwales is not factory Marinette, as far as I know. I think I have seen pics of some Silverton that had that type of design.

Looks like an old 32 that someone extended. I'd pass but suppose it would be okay if they knew what they were doing. Like everything else: it would be okay if you did it right though I can think of a few things that would trouble me.

Boat designers cringe seeing "modifications" like that.

I see several things that are not in the style of the Marinettes I have known. The all welded rail, mine had fittings. The handrail on top of the cabin same thing. The windows do not look like Marinette. Also, it is ugly.

Interesting craft. Has some Marinette ques, and some not-so. Could very well be a special build. If you look at some of the design features of Sorry Dog's 60 ft. Aluminum Cruiser (some photo's I posted that Sorry Dog sent me in email) these features look very similar to his former boat. The boat on craigslist could very well be modified, as that is what Sorry Dog did to his (he added a massive second floor to his, originally equipped with only a small upper level pilot house). This one appears to have been an Express that someone has enclosed into a sedan (by the way that the salon and lower cabin are divided with a small door). Looks real pretty, paint looks good too. A 468HP engine?? Wonder what engine??

Maybe it is not 468hp, but a chevy 468 v8? Very common for people to confuse hp and displacement.

If it were a diesel I doubt it's a 468 hp v8
