She’s a wonderful opportunity to own a well-maintained Marlow Explorer that shows like a much newer yacht as her owners have spared no expense maintaining her from bow to stern. She is the ultimate example of a “turnkey” yacht that is ready to go on her next adventure. She was built with an awesome semi-custom air-conditioned semi-enclosed flybridge that has a hard enclosure on the front and sides, leaving the aft completely open.

This provides a level of cruising comfort unlike any other. She can be cruised at an efficient 8 knots using a mere 4GPH per engine or fast cruise at 16 knots with a top speed of 20 knots. The 18′ 2″ beam makes her 61 feet feel more like a vessel in the 70+ foot range. The full beam master stateroom is amidship with a private his/hers en-suite head. Two additional staterooms forward, guest head, plus crew quarters with head aft allow for many family and friends to join the cruising adventures!

The Portuguese bridge, covered side decks, and Marlow’s proprietary Velocijet Strut Keels are just a few of the features that make handling the boat very safe and easy for a cruising couple. There is a docking station in the cockpit to make docking a breeze. The full standup engine room makes maintenance work much more pleasurable. This is a great opportunity to do down island cruising and fishing with this custom 61E Marlow Explorer semi-enclosed bridge Marlow Explorer!
