2005 Marlow 78 Explorer

  • 78 ft
  • Cruiser
  • Hilton Head Island, SC, US

Yacht price :

$1,949,000

Overview

The Marlow 78 has few peers in terms of exceptional accommodations AND exceptional speed.  A king master, a king VIP and a day bunk, as well as captains quarter for two provide suitable living for a party of 8 plus two crew.    In keeping the Marlow tradition, the pilot house offers a generous country kitchen, ample dining space and of course the very functional helm. The opposing seating in the salon, along with a separate dining table make the yacht very livable.  

The CATS will push the boat to a fast cruise in the 20's and a WOT of almost 30 knots.   

Most unique compared to other 78's in this market is the ability to bring the clearance/air draft of the vessel to 20' by utilizing an electrically retracted radar mount.   

Varnish and teak decks had a recent refresh and the list of updates over the years is long.

Review the recent photos and details and call for a showing.  Located in Maine, be departing for South Carolina in late October.

Accommodations

Whether entering from the double transom doors from the Euro style swim platform or boarding through port or starboard bulwark doors, you will see the superior quality that sets a Marlow Explorer apart from its competitors. As you stroll around beautifully handcrafted teak decks, installed without fasteners to avoid any opportunity for leaks, you will notice all the best features we could imagine incorporated into the yacht. The Portuguese Bridge with high bulwarks allows movement both fore and aft. The design of these yachts, while classic in style, incorporates modern composite materials and construction methods that are not available in any other yacht. While fit and finish are common terms used in the marine industry, at Marlow Yachts the terminology better describing the yachts is “craftsmanship created by artisans”.

There is no settling for adequate, as the factory strives to build the very best always. While lounging on the covered aft decks with custom built-in seating and teak table, you will be amazed at the space on board. The arched ladder leading to the bridge deck is placed above a fiberglass cabinet style access hatch and door which leads down to the crew cabin with sleeping for two and complete head and separate shower. Forward of the crew cabin is the huge engine room and machinery space. Mechanics from main engine suppliers are impressed with the 6 foot plus head room and the ability to move around the front and outside of both engines with ease. The transom access door from the lazarette storage area provides convenient access without disruption to the owners who may be aboard.

Just above on the aft deck, a study door accesses the spacious main salon. Custom built and decorated with designer fabrics, spectacular is the word that immediately comes to mind. All the way aft, twin leather recliners face a Phillips Flat Panel TV which is mounted in the forward end of the salon and surrounded by teak cabinetry and drawers. Opposing sofas feature seat bases that lift hydraulically to expose Formica lined storage underneath. You will not find any unfinished surfaces, anywhere. A teak hi-lo cocktail table complements teak blinds and teak  and holly floors, and a custom round teak dining table, finished in high gloss, accents designer dining chairs.

The pilothouse, galley and dining area, up three steps from the salon, allow the captain to enjoy the company of all aboard. The island style galley, complete with two stainless steel lined, drawer style, U-Line refrigerators, additional Sub-zero freezer, drawer style Fisher-Paykel dishwasher, Dacor smooth top range and oven, Sharp microwave, garbage disposal, Grohe fixtures, Franke stainless sink, and black galaxy granite countertops, combine to create a chef's dream in which to create culinary delights. The pilothouse helm is fully equipped with redundancy on all electronics including two full PC based navigation packages. An overhead systems panel, provides readouts of the ship's systems. 

The four staterooms, accessed from the pilothouse via a teak staircase, are custom finished in light maple artistically accented with teak trim and joinery, right down to the cabin doors which are finished in maple on the interior side and teak on the hallway side. German Schwepper door locks finish the look and feel of quality. The VIP stateroom is forward with king centerline berth and private head with separate shower, all with nearly 7' headroom. Twin lockers are cedar lined and lighted, and the cabinetry is finely finished furniture. A hatch, just aft of the berth, provides access to the bow thruster and lower bilges which are finished in high gloss white awlgrip. Aft and to port is a guest stateroom with oversized single berths, also complete with private head and separate shower. Stainless steel opening port lights supply plenty of light and
ventilation. Opposite the guest stateroom is the 4th stateroom with queen sized berth, elevated to accommodate an ASKO washer and dryer, and teak sliding tambour doors which allow the area to be open or closed off for privacy. Moving aft is a luxurious master stateroom with a centerline king size berth, a settee surrounded by lockers starboard, a beautifully finished vanity table surrounded by curved drawers portside, and full width his and her heads aft, each fully outfitted with luxury granite sinks and pewter and gold Grohe fixtures, adding to the rich feel of this yacht. A finely crafted desk with chair and Shoji privacy screens forward add that final touch of finish unique to a Marlow.

The Crew’s quarter’s aft are equipped with head and separate shower plus flat panel TV and direct TV receiver.
