Probably the most handsome profile of all the raised pilothouse motoryachts built, the Marlow Explorer 70E was born a classic. The protective Portuguese bridge and comfortably sized covered walk-around decks make this yacht a pleasure when handling various on-deck cruising or docking tasks. Both the pilothouse and the hard top covered flybridge offer great vantage points and visibility with socially inviting settings for piloting the yacht.

Viewing the Yacht from across the basin, you are tantalized by her classic lines, and beautiful flag blue hull. Such a classic yacht immediately beckons you to come aboard. Entering the cockpit you notice the teak decks, and the amount of open space that invites you for cocktails at sunset. The extended boat deck hard top provides protection from rain and sun in the cockpit. As you walk around the outside of the Yacht you notice the details: no window frames, built-in bow seating, high bulworks which provide safe walkways around the yacht. At the bow is an anchor windlass which controls two anchors with 150 feet of chain on the Danforth, and 300 feet of chain on the Bruce. There are port and starboard power cords, fresh and salt water hose bibs. TV and phone cable connections and the shore water pressure regulator are all located in the bow storage cabinets. Returning to the cockpit, you enter into the salon which is wide open and you can see from bow to stern. The beautiful teak interior, with splashes of color, soothes you into dreams of cruising for weeks or months on end. In the salon aft corner is the entrance to the crew quarters and the engine room. Looking forward and to port are two reclining chairs, a 50" Samsung flat screen TV and the bar area. Scanning to starboard and forward you notice a settee with a folding table for enjoying your favorite beverage, or working on the computer, and looking aft you see a beautiful U-shaped settee and coffee table.
On the forward port side of the salon are the steps into the pilothouse and galley. There is an excellent galley set up with state of the art refrigeration and appliances, and a helm station that is designed like a piece of art, with a very comfortable dinette.
Heading down the curved stairway to the staterooms, your attention is focused on the quality of the wood, recessed hand rails, and the finish of the teak. Forward is the VIP stateroom with a queen size bed, in-suite head and shower.
Moving aft and to port is the guest stateroom, with an in-suite head and separate shower. Again the fit and finish is a work of art.
Exiting the guest stateroom and moving aft you enter the master stateroom. The stateroom is full width. The king size bed is for and aft on center line, and there are twin heads with a central shower, rows of drawers and many closets. It is such a large warm area it is hard to believe that this boat is only 70’ feet in length.
As you head up to the flybridge, either from the pilot house or by the cockpit stairway aft, you realize the size of this boat. Again, another area invites you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the moment. There is seating for up to seven people, a refrigerator, icemaker, sink, and a grill, plus lots of storage.
When entering the salon from the cockpit your attention is captured by the vast amount of space in this area. As you look forward and to starboard, you notice a very comfortable settee and coffee table, and to port a 50-inch Samsung TV with new hydraulic lift upgrade, and the Bose home theater system with surround sound, neatly fitted between two comfortable chairs. Also to port is the granite wet bar, with a wine cooler, refrigerator, glass and liquor storage, new wine cooler Silhouette Select brand, and a sink. Just to starboard of the bar is a settee that looks aft and has a fold up table that functions as an office or a bar top. Above the settee and forward are a set of custom cabinets for your finest china and stem ware.
The pilothouse and the galley are the heart of this boat. To port is a comfortable dinette with seating for up to five people. Forward is the helm station and to starboard is the stair down to the staterooms and the starboard pilothouse door. Underneath the helm station is a large area finished in Formica. There is enough room to allow the electronics technician easy access for installing equipment and making repairs if necessary. Both the 120 volt and 240 volt AC electrical system, 12 and 24 volt DC panels, the navigation and the commnications systems are located in this area. Above the helm station from port to starboard is the status panel for all systems. Starting on the port side of the panel are the 12 and 24 volt navigation and electronic circuit breakers, the tank tender, fire buoy system indicator, inverter controls, stabilizer controls, emergency panel warning lights, and all the pump and navigation lights switches.
Moving forward and down from the pilothouse is the companionway to the three staterooms, which all have en-suite heads and showers. The maple woods with teak accent highlights makes these areas bright and airy.
Two steps down and aft is the spacious master stateroom. The maple woods with teak accents makes this area feel much larger than its actual size. This is accomplished by the use of composite structure everywhere in the cabinets, closets, heads and the hull. Composites are thinner and stronger, i.e. take up less space. This stateroom is wow, huge, warm and comfortable. The king size bed is fore and aft on center line, cedar-lined closets and drawers are to starboard. Forward and to starboard a cabinet encloses the Bosch washer and dryer, and to port is a flat screen 26-inch TV and a DVD Player. On the port side is a settee with storage underneath, book shelves, and two cedar- lined closets. The heads are aft of the bed, one to port, the other to starboard with a central shower.
Entry to the engine room is from the crew quarters. The watertight door has a window that allows you to check the engine room before opening the door. Upon entering the engine room you immediately notice the head room of more than 6 feet. This is a white engine room, and it is spotless. Every piece of equipment is like new. The twin engines are soft mounted to reduce vibration, and coupled with the Aqua Drive system to reduce vibration. The sea chest forward and between the engines provides sea water for every piece of equipment that uses sea water.

Resin infusion is extensively used where appropriate. The Marlow Explorer exterior finish is among the finest on earth and will look like fine porcelain for years to come. Marlow yachts are designed and built to cross the oceans of the world in comfort and safety while the proprietary Strut Keel© technology allows inland and island cruising with fully protected running gear.
