Blue Marlin mounts are sought after by avid anglers and vacationing tourists throughout the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean. Blue Marlin are normally fished by trolling lures or rigged baits through the water, raising the fish from the water depths and inciting a strike. These blue marlin full mounts are cast from molds creating off real blue marlin, allowing us to produce an anatomically correct blue marlin mount.
All of our two sided Blue Marlin full mounts are made of fiberglass for a lifetime of enjoyment and are hand crafted to represent the fish you caught or to showcase the fishes alive and lit up look as if it was swimming in the ocean. If you are purchasing an Blue Marlin full mount to commemorate a catch, we encourage you to send a picture of your catch. We custom paint our Blue Marlin full mounts and we even custom paint our eyes to give a realistic look to your new trophy. Our production team even takes the time to notch out rips and tears that your Marlin might have. For customers who do not have a photograph or are just purchasing for decoration, our normal process is to paint the black marlin "lit up" and alive. The final step is to clear coat the black marlin with a UV Protective Urethane clear coat. This beautiful blue marlin is the perfect piece of decoration for your new house, office or Florida room.

The most important feature of a high-quality blue marlin fish mount is its lifelike appearance. The mount should accurately capture the shape, size, and distinctive features of a blue marlin, including its bill, fins, scales, and coloration. The eyes should appear realistic and glassy. All of our blue marlin mounts are cast out of molds were cast off actual blue marlin allowing us to provide the customer with an anatomically correct blue marlin replica. We also custom paint all our eyes. Many outfits use a standard eye or just paint a blue iris with black pupil but we use a technique called a break up technique to put down multiple layers or colors while breaking up the color in between. This creates a very realistic blue marlin eye.
Pay close attention to the level of detail in the mount. High-quality mounts will feature meticulous detailing, including individual scales, muscle definition, and fin texture. Our team members are all avid anglers and are familiar with the way blue marlin look and therefore incorporate all the above mentioned features into each blue marlin mount.
The paintwork should be skillfully executed to replicate the vibrant colors and patterns of a blue marlin. The finish should be glossy and durable, enhancing the overall realism and making the mount appear as if it just came out of the water. Our artists focus on providing you with a stunning, realistic blue marlin that replicates either your catch or, if purchased for decor purposes, a blue marlin swimming through the vast deep blue sea.
Quality mounts are constructed using durable materials that will withstand the test of time. The internal framework and support should be strong to prevent warping or damage over the years. Additionally, the materials should be resistant to fading and deterioration when exposed to sunlight and environmental factors. All our blue marlin mounts replica are made with fiberglass for strength and gel coat to capture all the fine detail from the mold. Our UV protectant paints are made for both indoor or outdoor use.
