The Lauderdale show is the first display of the new Marlow 53 Explorer, a fuel-efficient, long-range, state-of-the-art cruiser. For long or short trips, the new Marlow offers the same elegance, comfort and sophisticated engineering as its siblings.
David Marlow uses aviation-like standards in the yachts bearing his name, with lots of Kevlar, carbon fiber and modified epoxy, while keeping both the overhead height and the center of gravity low. The new 53 tracks straight with Marlow’s exclusive Strut Keel. The engine room has standing headroom and walkaround access to the twin John Deere diesels.
The boat’s salon has a desk and long L-shaped settee on the starboard side, and another settee between the bar and a granite-topped cabinet forward on the port side. The galley and dinette are in the pilothouse area.
Below, the large master stateroom has a centerline queen bed and a luxurious head with his-and-her toilets and vanities separated by a shower. The VIP stateroom forward has a queen berth with lots of storage and a head with shower. A smaller stateroom with upper and lower berths is under the steps. The flybridge has twin Stidd helm chairs, two settees and a hidden grill with sink, fridge and icemaker.
