The Pilothouse in an open bridge boat would have a lower helm, but this is unnecessary in a yacht with a fully protected air-conditioned and heated Command Bridge vessel like "Prop 23." This pilothouse area has been built as a large dining area. It has a big U shaped settee and large teak table.  A large dedicated dining area is a feature usually reserved for yachts well over 60' but "Prop 23" accomplished it in a 49E.  With the dining area in the same area as the galley it makes for a great living and gathering place.

Master Stateroom


  • You will not find a nicer Master Stateroom on any yacht under 70'.  With a full King Size bed Athwartship with nightstands on both sides with reading lights.  The head runs the full length of the master stateroom on the Starboard side providing a large shower, lots of counter space and an oversize port light providing lots of natural light. There is ample storage drawers andhanging lockers to accommodation ship with large opening port lights. She has the space to live on board for "the season". The location of this Master Stateroom is as important as the accommodations within. The Master is in the center of the vessel, not in the Bow as is commonly found in Yachts below 60'. There is far less noise and motion in the center of the vessel than in the bow.

The stateroom has a Samsung LED TV and Fusion Radio that is independent of the others on the yacht.  Overhead and outboard there are 2 large storage shelves that are perfect for storing luggage. In the center of the ceiling there is a full size hatch that has a screen to keep the bugs out and built in shade to keep the sun out when you want to sleep in.


The spacious VIP Head is to Port and can be accessed directly from the stateroom of the hallway. The shower is very large and the room gets lots of natural light from the oversize port lights.

Engine Room

Marlow yachts are famous for their spacious “stand up” engine rooms built for those who do not wish to crouch down, forced to move like a contortionist to gain access to vital systems. Everything is perfectly finished from the white bilges to polished stainless piping. The Cummins QSM11 715HP engines and Onan generators are easily accessible. The stabilizer system and Air Conditioning Chillers are easily accessible. There is a camera for monitoring this area from the helm. The port and starboard 13.5kW  Generators have 607 hours and 616 hours and are surrounded with a factory sound shield box in the engine room and is superb in providing very quiet operation.

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 abundant storage 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 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.
