Given the topicality of Ellen MacArthur at the moment some may be interested to know that Marten Yachts who built Ellen MacArthur's first Kingfisher here in NZ had a liquidator appointed a few days ago. This has been a rumour over the last couple of days but is confirmed by the NZ Companies Office.

They built some high profile boats (the company I ran at the time surveyed Kingfisher during its build on behalf of the owners) and another they built which will be known to many is Mari Cha III.
