Like all the Marlow Explorers in the 78 series, she was designed by company owner David Marlow to be seakindly, with the equipment and layout her owners need to accomplish lengthy passages with fewer fuel stops.
In spite of a smaller footprint, the Marlow Pilot 34 has lots in common with the big, sophisticated motoryachts that Marlow Marine has been building for years.

Our Boat Test of the Marlow Yachts 66E. The Marlow Yachts 66E is a fine, seaworthy vessel. But the detailing and engineering that are generally hallmarks of the Marlow brand push her well beyond such stalwart adjectives.

Marlow recently launched their new 80E and she’s everything you’ve come to expect from the builder, replete with old-school charm and top-notch seaworthiness. She’s also got surprising speed, with a fast cruise of 25 knots, a pace she can keep for 700 miles.
The Marlow Mainship 32—will soon be unveiled at the Miami International Boat Show. The boat, which features classic lines and a whole heap of cruising amenities, should be quite a hit.

A berth with a 6 foot 5 inch length ensures sweet dreams.

The further adventures of our sailors-turned-powerboaters.
We were taking our first cruise after making the switch from sail to power. We were certainly nervous about handling our new Marlow 57 Explorer, which seemed massive compared to our Beneteau 423 sailboat, but we never could have guessed what would happen. Suffice to say, Kat is convinced that Indigo’s distinctive dark-blue hull attracts other boats like a magnet. I hope she’s wrong.
Marlow Yachts 61E MK2
Marlow Yachts’ highly regarded Explorer series has been at the cutting edge of long-range cruisers for quite some time now, building a loyal following of owners who prize the boats for their luxury, dependability, aesthetics, and outstanding seakeeping ability. With their newest redesign, the 61E MK2, it looks to improve on
Marlow is currently overhauling its popular 61-series hull to create a long-range cruiser the company hopes will dominate its class. The MK2 features two large staterooms that will serve a cruising couple and their VIP friends quite nicely. And down below a special workbench has been built into the engine room in case the owner gets a hankering for working with
How do life-long cruising sailors switch from a much-loved Beneteau 423 to a Marlow 57E motoryacht after just three months of boat shopping? We aren’t entirely sure ourselves, but we do know when the idea came to us.
The first time I went aboard the Marlow Explorer 70E Mark II, she was tied up next to the Rod and Reel Club on Miami’s posh Hibiscus Island. It was late, with a boat-show party going on, and the feeling under the live oaks was pure nautical romance. Lanterns on the
In David Marlow's hands are two coffee stirrers buttressed at either end with the lids from our large Styrofoam cups. "You see," he explains as he leans his elbows on the granite countertop in the galley of the Marlow 86, "these lids represent the Kevlar skins..." As the owner and founder of Marlow Yachts begins his explanation, I sip on my coffee and pay careful attention, knowing that he and
Try this fantasy on for size: It's a sunny afternoon in Seattle, and your new Marlow Explorer 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht is ready to go at last. You step aboard the fully commissioned vessel at Chandler's Cove Marina on the south end of Lake Union, hard by the offices of Venwest Yachts, Marlow Yachts' West Coast dealership. You spend some time savoring the moment and shooting the breeze with
David Marlow followed a regimented path to success during a multidecade career as a boat designer, eventually retiring to his native Florida hard by Terra Ceia Bay in a restored, cracker-style home. But he couldn't stop thinking about hull design, spending hours tinkering in his workshop followed by towing scale models of his design behind his Boston Whaler. Eventually, no longer content as a
I was sitting in David Marlow's pine-paneled office a year ago, looking out the window. It's a beautiful, park-like place, Marlow Marine, with royal palms, one of the oldest buttonwood trees on Florida's west coast, cracker-style tin roofs, and an ambiance of calm assurance. The shady, spring-fed lagoon at its center, which opens into the Manatee River, Terra Ceia Bay, and ultimately Tampa Bay,
Okay. I’ll admit I struggle with a tendency to exaggerate...sometimes. And I’ll admit that when a couple of New York-based PMY editors telephoned me here in Florida a few weeks ago to confirm the wave heights I’d mentioned in a recent boat test, I got defensive. “Hey,” I shot back, “It’s been honkin’ down here for days—seas were at least six foot, or I’m a monkey’s
Sidling up to the fuel dock at Miami Beach Marina is a fairly easy chore, unless you happen to be driving a great big motoryacht with a gorgeous dark-blue fiberglass hull, a displacement pushing 50 tons, and a price tag of approximately $3 million. Of course, should these factors top your list of priorities on any given day, a host of rather exotic boat-handling considerations must be taken into
