2009 Marlow 70E Explorer MkII

Saint Petersburg, Florida



MERO is a stellar example of the Marlow design. A classic trawler with a handsome dark blue hull, cream topsides, teak decks and varnished cap rail and hand rails. Her extensive and constant maintenance have resulted in her impeccable condition. Abundant upgrades have continuously been done.

While classic in design, MERO has added environmental features that make her a stand out in green technology. A sophisticated resin infusion process-RIVAT (Resin Infusion Vacuum Assisted Transfer) in the hull and stringers along with improved interior design, removes substantial weight and improves efficiency and performance. Add to that, the 8 low profile, mono-crystalline Suntech solar panels, located on MERO’s hardtop and you have a serious step into the fusion of yachting and green technology.

The aft deck has overhead cover from the extended boat deck and is open on three sides. A stairway to port leads to the boat deck. There is bench seating and a teak table for at fresco dining. Centerline double doors open to the main salon. Immediately to port is a wet bar with refrigerator/icemaker, wine cooler and storage cabinet. The interior is paneled in teak with a teak and holly sole. Two white leather settees are to port and starboard each flanked with teak end tables. There is a handsome teak coffee table in the center. Forward is a custom teak cabinet which serves as the room divider, china storage and entertainment center. To starboard is private stairway access to the master suite and to port are 2 steps leading up to the open galley/pilothouse.

The teak cabinetry in the galley is accented with black granite countertops. There are full size appliances, a sizable work counter and pantry in a U configuration.

The open layout of the pilothouse and galley w/pilot and co-pilot Stidd helm chairs and an L-settee and hinged dining table to port of the helm provide inclusion for all while underway.
