Yacht Registry is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Marlow Marine Sales, Inc..
The Marlow Explorer is one of the few yachts in the world whose manufacturer has taken the time to optimize the basic hull design. Most yachts built today are very similar to each other and their predecessors over the last 20 years. When you see a Marlow Explorer on land you notice very quickly that the yacht is blocked at the bow and at the stern she is sitting on her own proprietary twin Velocijet Strut Keels. Take the time to visit our yard so you can plainly see the under bottom out of the water.
The hull is molded in gel coat and topped with Awlgrip primer and finished with the beautiful Flag Blue Awlgrip paint. The bilges are so smooth using a special white gel-coating for a neat and tidy, always clean looking, finish like the rest of the exterior and decks on the yacht.
The propellers are position with a prop pocket gaining the ability to be well above the bottom of the keels whereby light grounding on a sand bar will only result in some worn bottom paint to the keels without ever touching or hurting the props!
What is not so obvious is how these strut keels will make the boat handle in a following sea. The lateral resistance provided makes the boat track straight with very little rudder correction required.
On deck you can see that the teak planks do not have bung holes hiding screws because instead they are epoxied in place for a far superior bond. There are no seams from the transom to the bow, including the Portuguese bridge due to the single molding piece of the deck giving the yacht unimaginable strength in heavy seas, squalls and horrendous storms. The windshields and side windows are tinted glass and laminated with a layer of 3M Hurricane shield to a total thickness of 13mm, twice what most builders use in vessels below 100'!

When boarding this beautiful 67 ft length overall yacht, you can step up to either side of the boarding doors, portside or starboard sides of the aft cockpit. Located on the aft deck you will see two stylish settees’, one positioned portside and the other starboard seating 6 people easily. With the beautiful aft seating arrangement, you may enjoy cocktails or dine alfresco on each of the hand-crafted tables, customized using teak, ebony, and an exotic woods compass rose making this boat extra luxurious.
You may also choose to board by stepping directly onto the swim platform where there is a single staircase mid transom and these steps leading up to the aft cockpit.
Using the swim platform boarding mode you will pass by 5 N-rails, removable and extremely sturdy high-grade stainless steel 316L for safety and ease when snorkeling or diving off the aft swim platform.
Just underneath the yacht you find the heavy duty teak stainless-steel pull out style swim ladder conveniently located aft deck middle at the waterline and you can use the stainless-steel grab bar built solidly into the teak swim deck for pulling one’s self out of the water.
If after a swim you want a “quick rinse” shower or “privacy head” before retiring to inside the boat you can lift up the stairs on the transom as they will conveniently lead you directly down into the spacious lazarette, crew head and shower passing the lazarette onward you will walk directly into the over 6 foot ceiling standing tall engine room. Everyone is amazed when they see the Marlow Explorer engine room where you don’t have to be a contortionist to get to the command central ER to do a system’s check daily.
Upon entering the salon from the aft deck, you feel the spaciousness of the vessel's 18'6" beam. This beautifully designed yacht has a gorgeous area with stunning panoramic windows for viewing throughout the salon and galley. This area captures the free-flowing onward sight to the forward windows where taking in dolphins playing and wonderful sunsets are the common place. On balmy and sun filled days you can capture this organic ventilation as the second aft door can be easily unlatched and slid open to create a 5' wide opening.
