SCHEDULE A MUST VIEW TO TRULY APPRECIATE
Occasionally something new and very different will appear in the marketplace and the effect that it has is profound. We knew from the very first days of development that the Marlow Explorer would excel in every test applied from strength to performance to visual beauty. We knew that yachtsmen who demanded quality, performance and innovation would want to experience the Marlow Explorer. What has overwhelmed us is the immediate and growing demand for this superior yacht.
Since 2000, we have become one of the worlds most talked about and sought out yacht buillders. In these pages we will introcuce you to the Marlow Explorer with models from 49' to 97'; the Marlow Voyager 76; the Marlow Prowler 375 with a classic model, an open deck model and the Havana, a sassy, sleek and speedy express cruiser; the two Marlow tenders, the Sprite and the Gypsy. We will give you all the details in the development and processes that have taken place to produce the yacht that so many are talking about. We hope it will intrigue you and bring you to Marlow Yachts for a personal introduction.
And this 2007 Marlow Explorer 70E Command Bridge is no exception. “Graceful Spirit” is the perfect cruising machine for today’s yachting adventurist: long range, express speeds in comfort, luxurious style in a safe and seaworthy yacht, demonstrating the removal of "compromise" from the equation of owning the perfect yacht.

The salon is very spacious. The tinted windows let in just the right amount of light and have custom-made teak blinds. Salon accommodations include a L shaped built-in settee and entertainment center with a large pop-up LCD TV and Bose Surround Sound. A full-size bar is in the forward salon area.
The galley is centrally located on the main deck forward and up 3 steps from the salon. An opening under the aft galley cabinets allows visibility right through to the salon and aft deck. The galley counters are granite and the under-mounted sink is on the forward side of the galley counter so you are looking out the front windows of the yacht when standing at the sink. The Dacor cooktop on the port side of the U-shaped counter and has removable stainless steel sea rails to keep pots from moving about on the smooth glass cooktop. The galley has generous cabinet space with louvered doors to keep the cabinets well ventilated.
The main deck pilothouse area is very spacious. Instead of a large lower helm station, which is unnecessary in a command bridge model, a large seating area with teak table is located forward and the galley is aft of the dining area and is open to the salon.
The top deck houses a large and functional Command Bridge, allowing for cruising in all types of weather. The Bridge boasts a 360 degree view. It has twin Stidd helm chairs and a giant settee with table. Twin sliding side doors, port and starboard, and a double rear door that can be open while underway. Phantom screens for all doors. Another bar and recessed sink on the port side with granite counter top.
Highly polished, finest quality stainless steel is used throughout every Marlow Explorer. We have designed a beautiful and functional oval handrail for more secure gripping and more substantial good looks. Our ship's bells, door handles and steering wheel centers are all laser engraved with the Marlow Explorer logo. The water fills are self-keyed for convenience and practicality.

The guest room has upper & lower twin bunks. Complete with En Suite head & shower. The folding solid doors open the room up to the adjoining companionway. 21" Samsung HD TV.
The full beam crew quarters are aft of the engine room and feature a double bunk, night stand and hanging lockers. The crew has their own head with shower. There is a separate entrance in the cockpit so the crew does not need to enter the salon to access their quarters. There is also a hatch that provides access while at sea.
The engine room has full standing headroom, access to every piece of equipment and machinery. It is accessed through a watertight door with a viewing port. All cables are neatly bundled, valves clearly labeled, plumbing color coded, gauges at eye level and plenty of light to work make this an ideal "boys toy room".
The sea chest is at the forward end of the engine room and provides sea water to the engines, generator, air-conditioning, and all the other items on the yacht that need sea water for cooling. Each item has it's own shut-off valve for servicing. The two 900 gallon fuel tanks are just in front of the forward engine room bulkhead. This is the center of buoyancy of the yacht so your running angle will not change as your fuel level changes. The fuel tanks also provide an additional layer of soundproofing between the engines and the cabins forward.

Updates since 2014:
This yacht is constructed with the most modern materials and techniques providing more strength with less weight than possible with conventional technology. The use of Kevlar, modified epoxy resins, and high density core materials allows the Marlow Explorer to be stronger than the heaviest of hulls at a fraction of the weight. Modern honeycomb and structural foam is used on every counter, cabinet and sole in the yacht. Even if speed is not a driving factor for you, the increased range and reduced fuel costs will be of great benefit.
Graceful Spirit is a stellar example of Marlow quality. She has been professionally maintained from her inception with an open check book. She has been serviced regularly since new.
Over the last four years, due to the desire of the current owners to keep her in mint condition, Graceful Spirit has undergone extensive preventive maintenance and improvements. An extensive list is available upon request.
