Hull and Exterior

Notice the superb finish of a Marlow Explorer on the INSIDE of the hull and deck. The Full Stack Infusion process Marlow invented, developed and employed produces a textbook fiber to resin ratio that can NEVER be approached by hand lamination. The protective Portuguese bridge with added bow seating and comfortably sized covered walk-around decks make this yacht a pleasure when handling various on deck cruising or docking tasks. The yacht is built using 3 major molds eliminating many secondary bonding operations creating a stronger lighter structure that will stand the test of time.

The entire exterior has been primed and painted with Awl grip paint. This surface is much easier to maintain and will not fade over time.


The raised pilothouse, Portuguese bridge, wide side decks, and state of the art semi-displacement hull makes the Marlow Explorer one of the most comfortable,and safest yachts in any sea condition. The side decks are fully protected by fiberglass bulwarks topped with teak cap rails that are waist high aft and higher forward. The stainless steel anchor is set up with all chain on the dual gypsy windlass. The bow rail is heavy oval stainless steel package. Both the pilothouse and the flybridge offer great vantage points and visibility with socially inviting settings and for piloting the yacht.
