Marlow Explorer 49E

Marlow Explorer 49E

Marlow Yachts announced at the October 2013 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show that it had begun construction on a new model, the ME 49 E. We listened to our customers who have expressed a great interest in a yacht in this size range. The plans were unveiled as a complete surprise to all at our lavish owners party and we quickly received orders from our very excited customers. This yacht was introduced in Miami 2015. We have now delivered over 20 of this model alone to extremely happy Marlow owners.

Like all Marlow yachts, this ME49 E features our unrivaled construction techniques with the finest of materials. It exhibits the same grace, dexterity and reliability in performance and provide the quiet luxury, overstated volume and outstanding fit and fiinish that all Marlow yachts share. She is constructed with our third generation radius transom, thus providing a significant gain in lazarette storage and cockpit areas.

There are several options for stateroom configurations creating either two very large staterooms or adding a third with twin bunks for very comfortable accommodations.

ME 49E Specifications

The layout of the this model is similar to all the Marlow Explorers with entry into the salon from a large aft deck equipped with a settee for entertaining and lounging. The salon has a starboard side sofa with twin arm chairs on the port side. The entertainment center is hidden behind tambour cabinet doors providing an elegant expanse of teak cabinetry and beautiful furniture. Up three steps into the pilothouse is the ample galley on the starboard and a comfortable dinette on the port side forward. The command center for the captain who would like to run the boat from inside has all the vital instruments perfectly arranged.

The fly bridge is large and comfortable for the captain and all those sharing the cruise. A dining table with settee, a grill and refrigeration makes for a wonderful entertainment area at dock or anchor and also convenient while at sea.

The master stateroom is large with a wall of cedar-lined hanging lockers and storage, a chest of drawers, beveled mirrors and a bright and roomy master head. A step down toward the aft is a unique passageway to the engine room. This provides space for the washer and dryer, a freezer and lots of storage in beautiful teak cabinetry while giving passage into the engine room through a water tight door from the interior of the yacht. There is engine room access through9i the transom door while at dock or anchor.

The deveopment and design of the Marlow Explorer 49 took over four years. Having built larger yachts first and wanting to have all those features and quality in a smaller yacht presented a lot to think about. You cannot afford to miss any detail. We feel we have hit the mark with our ME 49 and steady demand proves our Marlow owners think so as well. With its sturdy build, proven seaworthiness, redundant systems and enormous capability to travel, the ME 49 will be seen in ports around the world.

Marlow Explorer 97E

Marlow Explorer 97E

The largest Marlow Yacht was introduced in 2011. We designed this newest model Marlow with the environment and top performance in mind using everything we have learned over a lifetime of building, repairing and using boats. The new 97E is, of course, built using our own proprietary Full Stack Infusion © which has no equal in the marine industry. This process removes the ability of human error in laminating, eliminating good days, bad days, contamination, atmospheric considerations and a host of other potential problems from the equation.

Full Stack Infusion Discussion

The new 97E features a beam of 21’ and exceptional waterline length at around 83’, allowing displacement speed cruising with superior economy and significantly higher speeds than would be possible if we built a barge like design. In fact we believe that with its Bureau VERITAS unrestricted navigation certificate, it will be the fastest, best performing raised pilothouse offshore yacht in the world with equal power. We have run this yacht since it's arrival and have found a top speed of 29K and a very comfortable cruising speed of 23-24K. The range at 25K is about 950 miles and a range of 4000 miles is attainable with a speed of 9K.

Marlow Explorer 97E Command Bridge

The options for deck configuration are many and since it's introduction, every yacht has been significantly different. The Command Bridge allows for a luxurious master suite on the main deck with a grand salon and separate formal dining room. The u-galley can be accessed from the dining area as well as from a unique on deck door allowing activities to be carried out less obtrusively while providing fresh air to the galley when chosen.

The huge on deck master is difficult to describe without superlatives. It is accessed with its own direct entry from the salon or a private door to the exterior. The full bank of curved glass windows allows panoramic daytime views and starlit night gazing. A stunning Shanxi black granite sole is found in the master head with a hand carved solid Sichuan Pure White soaking tub gracing the room. A very large separate shower, hand carved marble sinks and vanities  balance of this luxurious suite.

Marlow Explorer 97E Command Bridge

For those who prefer, the galley in the pilothouse is expansive and well equiped for any and every occasion. From the lovely granite countertops to the integrated appliances, every item quietly boasts luxury and utility. The 30 plus feet of salon provides a grand space for entertaining and relaxing. The options for layout allows you to choose a formal dining room, a casual wet bar complete with bar stools or a private office. You can decide how to use the space for incorporation into your lifestyle.

Below features four, five or six beautiful guest cabins plus aft crew quarters. The Master stateroom below offers a king size midship bed, ample cedar-lined hanging lockers, bureaus and vanity along with sumptuous his and hers heads. At least two of the luxurious cabins are VIP style with another cabin featuring twin double beds. As an option, guests will be afforded their own private commissary with full cooking facilities for a late night snack and European laundry facilities.

The photos below show a Command Bridge model with the galley in the pilothouse and a grand master stateroom below. This model has a forward VIP with full head, a twin side by side stateroom with full head and a single bunk over the laundry facilities. A midship VIP with luxurious head has its own entry off of the salon.

The open fly bridge 97 E features an on deck raised pilothouse with a navigation station, a large galley and informal dining seating. Step into the salon and the vista sweeps all the way to the very bow without a bulkhead. The owner’s suite is a private getaway spanning the full beam in the very center of the yacht for the least motion. The fly bridge is protected by a fiberglass hardtop but wide open from the helm to a boat deck large enough for a fleet of water toys and outdoor entertaining.

The 97E has the option of the Marlow-developed solar roof system to recharge house batteries offering seamless 8 KW inverter power for on board appliance use. Her hydraulic transom door and swim platform allow water toys and brilliant access to crew quarters. At sea the Captain will be able to access the machinery spaces via a wonderful companionway in all weather.

Navigation Station

The machinery space cannot be ignored. It is every bit as detailed in fit and finish as the rest of the yacht. The space is gleaming with more than full standing head room. Every valve and hose is labled, every wire color-coded and every part of the engine is accessible. With the optional A/C and work bench, it is to some an ideal toy box!

Marlow Explorer 53C

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.


ME 57C & 61E Classic & Euro Transom

Designed for offshore cruising or island hopping, the ME 57C's notable features, like all Marlow Explorers, are its spacious accommodations, its high technology construction, and its elegance and strength. The roominess comes from the use of resin-infused architecture where the skin of the boat becomes the strength of the boat. This design is completely self-supporting eliminating the need for wood framing and posts and beams. The result is a light weight yacht of exceptional strength, a lower center of gravity and a greater number of design layout possibilities. This high tech construction, which includes vacuum bagged foam/fiberglass composite and wood veneers results in better fuel mileage. All wood used is strictly cosmetic. Each interior is hand crafted from a single log hand picked in Thailand and shipped to our facilities, to ensure that the grain, color and grade are consistent throughout the boat, resulting in an impeccably grain-matched finish.

ME 57C

ME 61E

Like her smaller and larger sisters in the ever expanding product line, the Marlow Explorer 61E exhibits comparatively huge volumes of space compared to typical polyester and woven roving construction with plywood bulkheads and wood framed bilges. By eliminating wooden supports, bulkheads and framing in favor of vacuum bagged sandwich construction we have once again been able to bring a yacht to market with 79" of headroom in the main salon and lower accommodations areas, 74" in the engine room and a total height to the top of the hardtop of just 18’. This low profile make a far superior sea boat with a drastically lowered center of gravity, while allowing the yacht to slip under many bridges an ordinary yacht in this size range would have to wait for.

The proprietary and protected Strut Keels® are used to great success allowing propeller protection and down sea tracking that has the industries' experts raving. Like feathers on an arrow, these twin tails guide and stabilize the yacht making heavy downwind running a delight rather than a white knuckle experience.

Whether you plan to visit the Galapagos, Prince Edward Island, Bermuda or the Spice Islands of the Caribbean the new 61E will take you there in comfort and safety carried in the hearts and hands of seamen who have been there before you.

ME 61C

ME 61C

The standard ME 61C layout consists of three lower deck staterooms and two heads featuring granite counters, china sinks and teak-framed shower doors. The master stateroom features a king-sized bed, double bureaus and his and hers heads. The hanging lockers are cedar-lined and provide ample storage. The washer and dryer are concealed in a fully finished locker with louvered doors to match the hanging lockers. The VIP stateroom has a queen-sized island berth and a head which features the Marlow Explorer signature curved Lexan shower door, mirrored ceilings for space enhancement and Grohe Infinity fixtures. The port-side office/stateroom has unique double-panel doors that can be opened for a large foyer/lounge area or can be closed for complete privacy.

The large protected aft deck leads to an airy saloon with all the amenities for gracious entertaining. Three steps lead up to a gourmet galley, a plush dinette with seating for six and a full helm station. The pilothouse is large, open and provides great visibility whether you are running the boat from the lower helm or enjoying a meal. This is truly dining with a view!

ME 65C

ME 65C

The ME 65C introduced Marlow Explorer Yachts to the world in 2001. It has been, and continues to be, a very popular model. Because of our superior architecture eliminating the need for interior bulkheads, we can satisfy the layout needs of all of our owners.

The reintroduction of the ME65C in 2006 brings Marlow Explorer's credo "Each one better than the one before" into the spotlight. The new ME 65C has shed 4,500 pounds due to the use of our proprietary RIVAT© system of lamination, a registered acronym for resin-infused vacuum assisted transfer in the construction of the yacht.(Read about this technological system of infusion by clicking here.) The weight loss results in increased strength, greater fuel efficiency and better performance for the yacht. In the factory, after the initial investment in new tooling and machinery, a savings was seen in the number of man-hours and materials.

Specifications for ME 65C


Marlow Explorer 65C

The new 65C can explore much farther due to the increased fuel capacity and the lighter weight. A unique fuel-delivery system on the new 65C employs a single valve to direct all fuel distribution, significantly increasing efficiency. The exhaust system has been modified for extremely quiet operation by counteracting the higher sound levels created by the revolutionary turbo engines. Farther and quieter! In the engine room, several significant changes have enhanced this new 65C. A sophisticated air intake system eradicates moisture and salt limiting damage from these insidious elements. A new system of mounting the engines on stainless steel mounts running across the tops of the fore and aft stringers has resulted in decreased vibration while spreading the weight load of the engines over a greater area of the yacht.


The command bridge has eliminated the need for a lower station allowing for a grand dinette with seating for eight. The command bridge with its panoramic view has a large lounge area for very comfortable gatherings and its own wet bar and refrigerator for convenience.

Below decks, there are three well appointed staterooms. The master glows with recessed lighting, extensive hanging locker space and beautiful cabinetry. The VIP is a luxurious retreat for your guests with its glowing cabinetry, queen size bed and private head. Our signature detailing is evident throughout - from the curved Lexan shower door to the lovely Grohe Infinity fixtures.

The Command Bridge models allow for more varied layout options in the pilothouse. The expansive space provides ample room for a dinette comfortable seating for eight in the fore section with the galley in the traditional U-shape in the afrt section of the pilothouse. A lovely alternative layout places the galley in the fore section in a wide U-shape with either a large settee facing the bow with a glorious view out the windows or a more formal dining table with cabinetry next to and behind.

Marlow Explorer 72E

Marlow Explorer 72E Long Range Cruiser

The first ME 72E LRC was built for an owner who had long range cruising on his agenda and a reputation for not accepting much in the way of compromise, either in accommodations or performance.

The command bridge created the signature profile for this series and has since grown so much in popularity that nearly every model has been built with a command bridge.

An all-weather helm with 360 degree visiblity and a wave-piercing bow opening up the water allowing the hull to slide through the wave all provide for a greater cruising range and a smoother ride while increasing the efficiency and performance of the yacht.

(Wave-piercing technology is discussed on a separate page for those who love this information-just click here!)

The first Marlow Explorer 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht was delivered in late fall of 2006. Built for a customer who is an avid deep sea fisherman and ocean traveler, this yacht is equipped to take you virtually anywhere in the world in comfort and luxury. The extended cockpit features a 40" transom door for hauling in "the big one" or easy egress on a transom-in docking situation. The optional Release fighting chair, Eskimo ice machine, rod holders, tackle center, auxiliary controls, cockpit-activated winch make the science of fishing an art form. The tackle center is built with same perfect joiner work and beauty as the interior cabinets and the 75-gallon bait tank with aeration pump and Lexan viewing port complete this working area of the ME 82CMY. With 3,000 gallons of fuel, 400 gallons of domestic water (with 900 gallon per day Sea Recovery watermaker) and 100 gallons of drinking water, stops between fishing grounds are cut to a minimum if not eliminated entirely.

This exciting 82CMY is powered by the optional C30 Caterpillar engines and attained speeds of over 31 knots on sea trials in light ship condition. These 1500 horsepower Cats are mounted, as befits the very best, on polished Stainless Steel engine beds spanning from the forward bulkhead to the custom watertight entry door aft.

“You don’t want to fight the wave, you want to dance with it,” Marlow says.

The Marlow 86E features twin Caterpillar C32s bedded on steel mounts. This relatively modest power alone does not explain the yacht’s performance. A mix of factors, including low displacement, construction techniques, trim and propulsion angles all combine to provide for a yacht that dances. Another major consideration is weight. Introduced in 2008, the 86 CMY was the first hull to have been built implementing Marlow Yacht’s Full Stack Infusion© a method that helps deliver just the right amount of resin to the mold utilizing vacuum pressure, resulting in important weight-saving benefits.

The yard’s use of epoxy resins and engineered fabrics such as Kevlar has created a structure that exceeds all predictions for laminate strength yields. Unsupported panel sections on the hull were reduced to less than one half the typical criteria for yachts of this type providing huge margins of safety engineering, far in excess of normal yacht standards. During the course of construction, the yacht became referred to as the ‘Ice Class’ FRP yacht.
