Marlow Yachts use resin infusion and the modern materials for construction, resulting in a hull, deck & superstructure with more strength and less weight than possible with conventional methods. While the foundation is a conventional semi-displacement form, Marlow utilizes proprietary "Velocijet Strut Keel" technology. This system uses twin strut keels that surround the propeller shafts in hydrodynamic fairings resulting in improved efficiency, tracking and stability. They also offer running gear protection, and modest propeller pockets keep draft to just 4 feet, 5 inches.
Beginning on the fully covered teak aft deck, features include built-in cushioned seating forward to starboard as well as port & starboard aft. A molded FRP stairway forward to port leads up to the flybridge. Port and starboard aft are boarding doors and three steps on each side leading down to the large swim platform.
Double centerline doors open to the spacious salon. The combination of satin finished teak joinery, granite countertops, Ultra leather furniture and the varnished teak & holly sole create an inviting warm ambiance.
