The “JIA”  Marlow 53E 2017 has been such an amazing Marlow Explorer yacht for the family who owns it that they decided to build another Marlow Explorer 62E model! This 53E Marlow is built with exceptional thought and decision making knowing exactly what they wanted from the beginning of the process. As was stated “they had no idea they would love it so much they ended up living on board for over 5 months” at a time and turning life into a wonderful adventure while still being able to work at more leisurely pace. “JIA”  is well equipped with upgraded Cummins QSM 11 715hp twin diesel engines giving her a top speed of up to 23

knots when running from a storm or night fall. In addition, she will gently cruise at 18 knots while scarcely sipping the fuel at even slower speeds. “JIA”  can run fast when needed with

amazing performance and economy as well as trawling speeds moving gingerly through many desired northern and eastern waterways such as Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Island in Massachusetts. She also loves cruising down easterly in the winters and down to the South Florida waterways and hopping over to the Caribbean Islands for wonderful play times while snorkeling, diving off the coral reefs and swimming in white sandy beaches with many days filled with the sun and fun!

 

Today the US Navy and other militaries of the world are embracing composites for superstructures to improve speed, protection from attack and seaworthiness, while increasing comfort. Our Marlow boats are built with a similar however very special propriety construction process utilizing David Marlow’s RIVAT (resin infused vacuum assisted transfer) method giving the vessel the incredible strength and endurances like the military grade vessels. Along with using hearty construction and the highest-grade materials made of cupronickel and carbon fiber, she is built for the long-lasting life span and modern efficiency and seaworthiness of offshore ocean-going vessels.


Deck and Hull

The beautiful Oyster White hull with Flag Blue boot stripe and dark bottom paint gives the boat an elegance of magnitude. She has Moondust colored nonskid decking throughout the exterior of the boat and is easily maintained with a wash down feature installed. The bilges are so smooth using a special white gel-coating for a neat and tidy always clean looking finish like the rest of the exterior and decks on the yacht.

 

The interior flooring is teak and holly satin finished exotic wood and hand made by our talented Marlow artisans at our own Marlow factory. These artisans used the entire Burmese teak tree and hand crafted throughout the boat from its original state. It is widely known that for every tree used we plant 10 more trees to make sure and keep our facility to an environmentally conscious capacity. The lower deck is also hand crafted using the lovely Birds Eye Maple woods with teak trim for a lighter and stylish open look.

The Marlow Explorer is one of the few yachts in the world whose manufacturer has taken the time to optimize the basic hull design. Most yachts built today are very similar to each other and their predecessors over the last 30 years. When you see a Marlow Explorer on land you notice very quickly that the yacht is blocked at the bow like every other boat, but at the stern she is sitting on her own proprietary twin Velocijet Strut Keels. The propellers are positioned with a prop pocket gaining the ability to be well above the bottom of the keels and it is obvious that a light grounding on a sand bar will only result in some worn bottom paint to the keels without ever touching or harming the props! What is not so obvious is how these strut keels will make the boat handle in a following sea. The lateral resistance provided makes the boat track straight with very little rudder correction required.

 

There are no seams from the transom to the bow, including the Portuguese bridge due to the single molding piece of the deck giving the yacht unimaginable strength in heavy seas, squalls and horrendous storms. The windshields and side windows are tinted glass and laminated with a layer of 3M Hurricane shield to a total thickness of 13mm, twice what most builders use in vessels below 100'!

Jumping off and playing alongside the boat while anchoring near the islands is great for swimming and diving from the swim platform. Also, you can easily pull yourself back to the boat when swimming by pulling out the swim ladder located at the water line underneath the deck. Using the swim platform boarding mode you will find 4

N-rails, removable and extremely sturdy high-grade stainless steel 316L for safety and ease when snorkeling or diving off the decks.

Salon

Upon entering the salon from the aft deck, you feel the spaciousness of the vessel's 17' 3" beam. This beautifully designed salon has a gorgeous area with stunning panoramic window views throughout the salon and galley. This area captures the free-flowing onward sight to the forward windows where viewing breath taking sights of dolphins playing and stunning sunsets are the common place. On balmy and sun filled days you can capture this organic ventilation as the salon aft door can be easily unlatched and slid open to create a 5' wide opening. This is where you can feel the pleasant breeze as well as see many beautiful waterways and enjoy a romantic alfresco dining experience aft deck if desired. When entering the salon in “JIA”  you walk through the double entry doors which have are specially designed teak trimmed with glass panel top and bottom surrounding the watertight bulkhead doors for a wonderful aft deck viewing experience. You will also enjoy looking starboard to the L-shaped settee for generous seating along with added handcrafted teak storage cabinet starboard aft. There sits and an additional end table with the audio and video cabinet easily accessible and located mid ship just beside the comfortable sette. Looking portside aft you will find a lovely glass storage hand

crafted teak cabinet and a Uline 2115 wine cooler for wine and accoutrements to enjoy anytime or at a wonderful sunset happy hour. Located forward port there is a standalone Uline 2115 icemaker for convenience and entertaining with ease and pleasure. Also port are 2 swiveling chairs, complimented with two small cocktail tables.

Galley

Moving forward you will find the pilothouse just three steps up from the salon and includes the lower helm station, dinette and galley. There are two (2) pilot house watertight sturdy exterior doors built on port and starboard making both sides easy to open for excellent airing and a more natural ventilation. The staircase forward descends to the staterooms and a dedicated 5 step teak designed staircase on the port side aft ascends to the Flybridge. The galley is very well equipped with top of the line appliances and plenty of storage for provisions and housewares. The galley is designed utilizing the U-shape with beautiful Caesarstone counter tops. She is designed using the high grade “Dreamy Marfil”  Caesarstone and built with fiddles for easy maintenance and creates a "spill proof" area which is excellent for a yacht galley when underway in heavy seas.

Master Stateroom

getting directly to the main systems control station quickly or as needed.

VIP Stateroom

The VIP stateroom forward has a center-line island queen berth with large dove tailed handmade drawers under the berth.

The sink is an under-mounted china bowl on a beautiful top finish. The teak and holly sole are excellent for an elegance and comfort for all guests.

Port Guest Stateroom
