something new and very different will appear in the marketplace and the
effect that it has is profound. We knew from the very first days of
development that the Marlow Explorer would excel in every test applied
from strength to performance to visual beauty. We knew that yachtsmen
who demanded quality, performance and innovation would want to
experience the Marlow Explorer. What has overwhelmed us is the immediate
and growing demand for this superior yacht.

Since 2000, we have
become one of the worlds most talked about and sought out yacht
buillders. In these pages we will introcuce you to the Marlow Explorer
with models from 49′ to 97′; the Marlow Voyager 76; the Marlow Prowler
375 with a classic model, an open deck model and the Havana, a
sassy, sleek and speedy express cruiser; the two Marlow tenders, the
Sprite and the Gypsy. We will give you all the details in the
development and processes that have taken place to produce the yacht
that so many are talking about. We hope it will intrigue you and bring
you to Marlow Yachts for a personal introduction.

And this 2007
Marlow Explorer 70E Command Bridge is no exception.  “Graceful Spirit”
is the perfect cruising machine for today’s yachting adventurist: long
range, express speeds in comfort, luxurious style in a safe and
seaworthy yacht, demonstrating the removal of “compromise” from the
equation of owning the perfect yacht.

Crew Quarters

The full beam crew quarters are aft of the engine room and feature a

head with shower. There is a separate entrance in the cockpit so the
crew does not need to enter the salon to access their quarters. There is
also a hatch that provides access while at sea.


Engines and Mechanical

The engine room has full standing headroom, access to every piece of
equipment and machinery. It is accessed through a watertight door with a
viewing port. All cables are neatly bundled, valves clearly labeled,
plumbing color coded, gauges at eye level and plenty of light to work
make this an ideal "boys toy room".

The sea chest is at the
forward end of the engine room and provides sea water to the engines,
generator, air-conditioning, and all the other items on the yacht that
need sea water for cooling. Each item has it's own shut-off valve for
servicing. The two 900 gallon fuel tanks are just in front of the
forward engine room bulkhead. This is the center of buoyancy of the
yacht so your running angle will not change as your fuel level changes.
The fuel tanks also provide an additional layer of soundproofing between
the engines and the cabins forward.

Sales Person Remarks

This yacht is constructed with the most modern materials and
techniques providing more strength with less weight than possible with
conventional technology. The use of Kevlar, modified epoxy resins, and
high density core materials allows the Marlow Explorer to be stronger
than the heaviest of hulls at a fraction of the weight. Modern honeycomb
and structural foam is used on every counter, cabinet and sole in the
yacht. Even if speed is not a driving factor for you, the increased
range and reduced fuel costs will be of great benefit.

Spirit is a stellar example of Marlow quality. She has been
professionally maintained from her inception with an open check book.
She has been serviced regularly since new.

Over the last four
years, due to the desire of the current owners to keep her in mint
condition, Graceful Spirit has undergone extensive preventive
maintenance and improvements. An extensive list is available upon
