This 53C Marlow Explorer was built for an experienced yachtsman who had previously owned two Grand Banks before upgrading to the Marlow Explorer. Throughout its ownership this Marlow has been exceptionally maintained by a very knowledgeable captain. She can take you 1200 miles at displacement speeds or will cover 150 miles in less than 10 hours. Imagine having a yacht that will let you cruise wherever and whenever you want. Now think of an exceptional yacht that allows 360 degree views as you sit perched atop the Stidd helm chairs on the flying bridge, with plenty of seating for family and friends. The Marlow Explorer 53C is just that yacht, classically designed and built to the highest standards in the industry. Built as are all Marlow Explorers with high tech construction methods and the most modern composite materials available, utilizing their patented RIVAT, full stack resin infusion process. The efforts made in designing a yacht of this caliber require a company willing to stand behind their corporate signature. Authorized by David Marlow, "Only the Best Will Do!"
With a beautiful white hull and stainless steel hand rails, reducing ongoing maintenance costs were in mind when the original owner built this vessel. The classic transom, with a convenient starboard transom gate gives great access to the large teak swim platform. This vessel has a very sophisticated custom stern anchoring system personally engineered by David Marlow specifically when bow and stern anchoring are a necessity. Upon boarding this classic beauty, the twin aft salon doors can open to allow a clear view of the morning sun. The high gloss teak and holly floors in the salon are just the beginning of the quality fit and finish you will see aboard this Marlow Explorer. This yacht was built with port and starboard built-in settes finished in cream ultra-leather. The Port settee can easily be converted into a custom pull out queen berth for a Captain or additional guests. Forward in the salon is a large flat panel TV that has ample storage cabinets and built in seating. Adjacent to the TV is a beautiful solid teak cabinet. Up a few steps to the pilothouse is the galley and large L-shaped dinette seating with matching Stidd Helm chairs. In this large area is the spacious galley with subzero refrigerator/freezers, built in microwave, large Dacor oven and cooktop surrounded by a beautiful granite countertop. The Stidd Helm chairs give the captain and mate expansive views of what lies ahead. The overhead control panel provides constant data to all the ships systems. The Furuno electronics help guide this yacht accurately to each port of call. Walking down a few steps from the galley, holding on to the recessed teak handrail, the realization of the thought processes that went into designing and building this Marlow Explorer is quite evident. Looking aft is the full beam master stateroom with centerline Queen berth in finely crafted teak. The head is to port with full sized walk-in shower and features Grohe faucets atop the granite counter. There is plenty of hanging locker storage and drawer/cabinet storage space. Forward to port is the 3rd stateroom twin bunks and a spacious office. The double folding doors make this a very open space, yet when it is time to rest you can close off the room entirely. Moving forward the VIP stateroom has a centerline queen berth, ensuite head with separate shower that would be the master stateroom on most yachts of this size. No visit to a Marlow Explorer is complete without an inspection of the engine room. This yacht has the upgraded twin 700HP C-12 Caterpillars with only 400 hours! The over six foot of engine room headroom is a great feature in a yacht of this size, allowing easy access to all of the mechanical systems. Her superior construction and classic styling have made the 53C Marlow Explorer the class of the industry. She is in great condition and available for immediate delivery.
Upon boarding the 53C Marlow, you will have the immediate feeling that you are on a much larger yacht. Her 18'2" beam, fully 2' wider than other yachts of this size makes the Marlow Explorer dwarf other yachts. The interior volume and expansive 360 degree views, and large salon windows allow for comfort as you cruise to your favorite ports of call. Three staterooms and a large pilothouse nicely equipped with a gourmet galley and a dinette large enough to seat family and friends! A comfortable salon with a large flat panel TV, Bose sound system throughout the vessel and built in seating with storage everywhere you could want. Being on this yacht will give you the the feeling of "home on the water" anywhere in the world!
Large U-shaped galley with plenty of storage and granite counter tops. This area also has adjustable dining area in the pilothouse for running long distance cruises in full air conditioned comfort. On long overnight passages this seating area is a great place for a mate to sleep, readily available to assist if needed.
Walking around the finely crafted teak decks to the Portuguese Bridge there is ample storage built in for lines fenders and cleaning supplies. Upgraded stainless steel bow rails have been built flawlessly into the Marlow Explorers design.
Powered with the upgraded and very popular 700HP C-12 Caterpillar engines with only 400 hours. Very easy to stand up and walk around in the engine room due to six foot overhead height with plenty of access to all systems. The port 45 lb. Danforth is stowed in the engine room.
In a world where compromising is the norm, the Marlow Explorer has set the benchmark for quality construction and design for the marine industry. The original owner is retiring from yachting after 25 years of enjoying life on the water. He hopes the next owner will get as much enjoyment as he has out of this wonderful yacht. This is a well maintained Marlow Explorer that is sought after by many and owned by a select visionary few. Call today for more information on this wonderful 2007 53C Marlow Explorer.
