2006 Marlow 72 ft 70E Halcyon Seas

Manufacturer Provided Description

Marlow Explorer Yachts are limited production yachts built under constant supervision and stringent quality control procedures. The Marlow Explorer 70E is designed and built to cross the oceans of the world in comfort and safety while the proprietary Strut Keel technology allows inland and island cruising with fully protected running gear.

Only the finest components like Dupont Kevlar, CoreCell and engineering construction fabrics are specified for the hull, deck and superstructure of the Marlow Explorer. Vinylester and Epoxy resins and glues are used throughout. Only top quality mechanical components like Aquadrive constant velocity joints, Tides seals are used. Lovely hand finished interior quality brands like Sub Zero, Dacor, Asko, Bosch, Franke, Grohe and similar brands are found. Fine fabrics of Ultraleather and other top brands grace the interior. The result is reminiscent of an era when quality, not quantity was the hallmark of a fine yacht.
