The ME53C & ME57E were created in response to customer's repeated requests for a smaller version of the previously introduced larger Marlow Explorers. This yacht is fully capable of extended ocean cruising but is easily managed by a couple. The large fiberglass fuel and stainless steel water capacities allow far ranging destinations and the unique and proven hull design guarantees comfort in less than ideal conditions should they arise. The ME53C will astonish you with the internal volume. With a beam of only 2" less than the 57C-65C' series, it provides the wonderfully spacious stand up engine room Explorers are noted for and commodious interior spaces from the saloon to the staterooms. There are three staterooms below, master and VIP, with full heads and one more guest stateroom that can double as an at-sea office. The u-shaped galley is in the aft part of the raised pilothouse and features every convenience and appliance to make your galley duties a pleasure. The dinette is next to the helm and is comfortable, roomy and presents a lovely view through the pilothouse windows. Two steps down from the pilothouse is the saloon with built-in seating that doubles as storage with pneumatic lifting hinges, wet bar with storage, TV/Stereo cabinets and lovely teak coffee table.
The ME57E Command Bridge was the first yacht we've delivered with this option. The Command Bridge is an enclosed flybridge where the Captain can run the boat in comfort out of the elements with room for guests in a spacious dinette-settee area. The helm is on centerline facing a console with a panoply of electronics and gauges. Overhead, conveniently in reach, are the instrumentation switches and alarm panel, and to the right is a chart table and storage area for all your navigation gear. Guests can relax in the lounge area that is served by a wet bar and refrigerator. With the helm in this Command Bridge, the pilothouse is freed up for an interesting and different arrangement. The galley wraps around under the pilothouse windows and features a glass cooktop, optional under counter refrigerator/freezer drawers and microwave/convection oven below resulting in a clean and accessible galley with a view. In the aft section of the PH, is a large dining room table with seating for six in front of beautiful glass fronted china cabinets with buffet tops.
