First Impressions- Absolutely stunning in every way, classic low profile, seaworthy heritage, high bow, excellent lines, flawless craftsmanship, superb joinery, proper equipment selection and placement are the initial feelings as you board any Marlow Explorer. Passageways are wide, bulwarks high and safe, running gear protected and ride quality that is unmatched. “Lady Eme” provides all that and more! She has a very functional layout, warm and spacious interior, extensive equipment, options and upgrades list. No expense was spared in this build!
All interior living spaces are teak trimmed, with teak and holly cabin soles, quiet chilled water air-conditioning and reverse cycle heat. The wood is sealed with satin-finish two-part varnish which only require an occasional wipe down with a dust cloth. The upholstery is Ultra leather with several layers of variable density foam that make for very comfortable seating areas. The hanging lockers are cedar-lined and lighted. Wherever there is a nook, cranny or unused space, the Marlow factory has found a way to turn it into a useful storage locker, drawer or storage bin. No potential storage volume is wasted anywhere aboard this vessel.
Aft Deck / Cockpit One boards “Lady Eme” from the stern via either stairway from the wide hydraulic swim platform, or from either side via the forward or aft boarding gates. The swim platform is exceptionally large and provides for an excellent multi-function watersports and lounging area. The lazarette, crew quarters and engine room can be accessed by a large hydraulic assisted transom door. There are twin port and starboard stairs to the aft deck leading up to the twin transom doors that grant access to the aft deck. The aft deck is VERY spacious, with cockpit seating, high gloss aft deck table, room for additional chairs to seat 10 and a very useful day head. Adjacent to the salon bulkhead to port of the salon door is a very functional built in stairwell to the fly bridge. Both spacious side decks run forward from the aft deck to the Portuguese bridge. Optional forward side boarding gates make for multiple boarding options when dock height becomes challenging. Two extra wide salon doors (one hinged and one sliding) create a 5-foot opening into the salon when both doors are open.
One enters the salon aft from the aft deck and immediately observes a wide open and spacious sight line to the forward windshield, as well as the large windows along each side of the salon. To port you immediately see the internal access to the crew area followed by a large and welcoming settee with internal storage, each section is easily lifted with the assist of a stainless-steel pneumatic strut. Forward of the settee is a well-appointed granite topped bar area with subzero beverage center, wine cooler and sink. There are custom free-floating chairs and coffee tables in the spacious salon area. There is a large TV and dining area for six forward, surrounded with built in storage and a library. Storage can be found just about everywhere and there is no wasted spaces or cramped rooms, just a feeling of comfort and well laid out proportions. As you look to starboard you will see a second large settee with built in storage and coffee table. With her multiple zones, chilled water loop air-conditioning system you will find no hot spots or cold spots through the boat, just comfortable and quiet air distribution. The elegance, design, styling and well thought out layout need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
Galley Up three steps to the large modified U-shaped galley with many upgrades that include granite counter tops, stainless steel Franke sink with cutting board cover, Grohe faucets, garbage disposal, Dacor smooth glass-top electric range with removable stainless-steel sea rails and pot keepers, Dacor oven, microwave, Three double drawer Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezers (Two in the aft portion of the galley and One extra just forward of the galley), and Fisher-Paykel single-drawer dishwasher. There are abundant cabinets and drawers everywhere one would want. Gourmet cooks will flourish in this wide open well-equipped galley and your guests will be begging not to leave.
Dining Area Forward to the large U-shaped dining and entertaining area for Twelve. The 360 degree views allow for a relaxed environment to soak in the beauty of your surroundings. Each large window is double layer tempered glass (laminated with hurricane film for intermediate strengthening to maintain watertight integrity and increase physical security) and provides breathtaking views. Upon further inspection, you will find an abundance of storage with a built-in deep freezer and pop up TV to port.
The engine room has standing headroom and has been designed to allow very good access to all equipment and has work stations aft. Placing the fuel tanks forward of the engine room allows the full beam to be used for upgraded equipment placement, makes for easy equipment access and leaves room for storage outboard of the engines. This attention to detail allows for easier maintenance access, which in turn leads to proper adherence to maintenance cycles and therefore increased resale value. The twin generators each have their own equipment rooms that are sound shielded and ventilated. The upgraded Seakeeper Gyro was factory installed below the aft lazarette stairs. The twin sea chests again provide redundancy for all sea water to the engine room through both sea chests that are cross plumbed, a much-improved safety factor over most boats built with ubiquitous inlets wherever it suits the builder with little to no regard to functional serviceability. Large yachts, commercial vessels and military ships often use sea chests for the same reasons. Two 32 KW Kohler generators in custom sound boxes provide redundant electrical power at sea (each generator will independently carry the vessels electrical load under normal operation). The dual, redundant and supplementary chilled water chillers and the start/finish of the circulating cold/hot water closed loop are here in the sound insulated engine room keeping unwelcomed noises from waking guests in the middle of the night. On the forward engine room bulkhead is the simplest of fuel management systems. Due to the Marlow’s fuel tank location (at the vessels center of gravity), no fuel management is necessary for trim or ballast, allowing all supply and return valves to remain open unless equipment isolation is desired. Fuel levels can be check with the most reliable system available, sight tubes. Aft in the engine room are the oil filled shaft systems which greatly reduce friction, increase overall performance and reduce vibration contributing to the Marlow Explorers reputation for a “great ride.” Exceptional sound isolation of this compartment and the additional sound isolation provided by two bulkheads and 3900 gallons of fuel tankage as additional insulation, enable normal conversations to take place in the salon and the master stateroom even while operating in the 29+knot range. Stainless steel engine beds atop carbon fiber stringers support the engines on soft motor mounts that reduce vibrations transmitted to the boat from the engine. The thrust plate absorbs the forward thrust and transmit it smoothly to the hull through the carbon fiber stringers.
A separate pump room is located below the forward berthing compartment with access from the companionway. This space contains the fresh water pumps and filters (to remove particulates, taste and odors). The water maker output connects to the separate drinking water and fresh water systems here.

Hull / Deck Construction “Lady Eme” is built using nothing but the best of today’s modern construction materials, taking advantage of all light weight, extremely strong, puncture resistant materials to provide a fuel saving at any speed, bullet-proof resistance to punctures, tremendous strength at sea in ball weather conditions and the friendly open feeling of a hull without unnecessary view interfering and weight adding wood bulkheads. Marlow’s drystack Resin Infusion Vacuum Assisted Transfer (RIVAT) infusion process saves you non-advantageous excess weight and enhances overall strength, efficiency and handling. The Corecell core is engineered for strength, laminating ease and resistance to any water intrusion. Marlow’s engineering team has combined the best materials available today to build the perfect FAST TRAWLER. The Kevlar inner and outer skins do for the Marlow what they do for a policeman, prevent killing penetration from foreign objects.
Three major, complex molds are used to build the vessel, minimizing the number of seams and maximizing strength. The primary structure is highly engineered E-Glass and Kevlar in combination with Corecell foam sandwich, laid up with modified epoxy resins. While in the mold for a minimum of 35 days, each Marlow hull attains a temperature exceeding 175 degrees, far above that experienced post-delivery. This prevents post-cure problems, often seen as microcracking of gel coat and rippling of hulls near bulkheads and other hard spots. Marlow Yachts age gracefully, without the graying of skin or wrinkles normally found in other vessels offered today.
The underbody is unique, with twin Velocijet strut keels and mild propeller tunnels. The tunnels permit the propellers to be raised and the thrust along the shafts to be more in line with the forward direction of the vessel. The tunnels improve water flow into the propellers, enhancing thrust. The Velocijet strut keels house and completely protect the shafts and extend below to protect the propellers. They are strong enough to support the boat when out of the water in a boatyard, or during an unfortunate low speed grounding. The Kevlar skin helps protect against severe damage from impact with debris, deadheads/logs and low speed groundings.
The hull is finished with Flag Blue Awlgrip paint. All false planking lines are crisp and the hull shines. The deck drains and scuppers lead to the continuous drainage system, which runs from bow to stern and prevents water from running down the side of the boat. No black streaks from deck drains on this beautiful girl!
The decks are finished with custom non-skid contrasting surfaces and large waterways carry away any water. Teak decks are provided under the covered aft deck, side decks and also on the centerline of the foredeck where secure footing is so useful in moving to and away from the windlass and anchor gear. The anchor windlass is controllable with the Yacht controller, at the bow and at the helm stations. A stainless-steel plow and Danforth type anchor are provided. All chain is provided on the primary plow anchor and chain and rode on the secondary anchor. Low profile, heavy duty hatches are provided on the foredeck, above the forward dining area and over the Pilothouse. Upgraded custom curved large oval shaped stainless-steel handrails provide safety and security and the quality of the welds displays the artistry from the stainless-steel shop at NORSEMEN Shipyard, the captive Marlow building yard. There is built in bow seating with substantial storage volume for fenders, lines and deck gear in the Portuguese bridge. At the front of the cabin on each side are tank fills for Fresh Water, no need to drag a hose across to the other side. Walk aft along either covered, wide side deck and you find a sliding watertight door. Observe the window lands, built with two-inch interior flat surfaces which receive the very strong, laminated, tempered glass from England.
