Marlow Explorer 53ft
Confounding the industry which fully expected development of ever larger versions of the very successful Marlow 57' - 78' Explorer series, we have continued the development of the series downward to answer repeated inquiries for a similar Explorer capable of extended ocean voyages. The 53C's large fiberglass fuel and stainless steel water capacities allow far ranging destinations and the unique and proven hull design guarantees comfort in less than ideal conditions should they arise.
The 53C will astonish with the internal volume. With a beam of only 2" less than the 57-65 series it provides a wonderfully spacious stand up engine room Explorers are famous for and commodious accommodations everywhere.
Each teak interior is hand crafted from a single log which is hand picked in Thailand and shipped to Taiwan to ensure that the grain,color and grade are consistent throughout the boat. Optional cherry and maple interiors are offered as well.
The Explorer 53C features our signature large pilothouse with outstanding visibility in all directions. The galley follows in the steps of her larger sisters providing the chef with a great place to work in a sensibly designed "U" shaped area for maximum efficiency and minimal requirement to move. We have included three lovely cabins forward with two very large heads. One cabin doubles as an office stateroom and features an "open plan" with double opening doors to the companionway for a more spacious and open look and feel.
The main salon is spacious, inviting and sensibly arranged featuring entertainment centers in both audio-visual and at cocktail hour. A large custom sofa occupies much of the starboard side with a hand crafted work of art hi-lo table suitable for dining located just inboard of the sofa. At the aft end of the salon is the exit to the lovely cockpit and cavernous lazarette below. Covered lower decks, shaded by the overhead boat deck provide a welcome respite from the summer sun or rain.
