Sales Person Remarks

This yacht is constructed with the most modern materials and techniques providing more strength with less weight than possible with conventional technology. The use of Kevlar, modified epoxy resins, and high density core materials allows the Marlow Explorer to be stronger than the heaviest of hulls at a fraction of the weight. Modern honeycomb and structural foam is used on every counter, cabinet and sole in the yacht. Even if speed is not a driving factor for you, the increased range and reduced fuel costs will be of great benefit.

Graceful Spirit is a stellar example of  Marlow quality.  She has been professionally maintained from her inception with an open check book. She has been serviced regularly since new.

Over the last four years, due to the desire of the current owners to keep her in mint condition, Graceful Spirit has undergone extensive preventive maintenance and improvements. An extensive list is available upon request.
