This is the short image based review of the Marlow Explorer 72 LR – that is the long range version carrying 3000 UK size gallons of fuel with the New Zealand Style waver penetrating bow, twin radar arch etc.
She has a closed foan Kevlar/glass advanced hull form with twin strut keels protecting the props – these can have a further 5 inch extension and so she can dry out with the props protected. The shaft is also enclosed to reduce drag.
She has a sea chest and so has just the one water intake for all purposes.
The following shot shows the sea chest
She has a deep V hull form
Part of the saloon
One of the staterooms
The boat has a tool room with workbench etc and toy storage area plus a nice crew cabin with enclosed shower/Tv etc – I would have this altered into a large storage area.
Nice posh fender clips!
Safe walk ways
Walk in engine room via crew quarters
All mod cons such as wine chillers
The single helm station from flybridge height
She is packed with hi-tech features, almso9t too many to mention and handled better than any boat I have ever helmed. She is great in a following sea and can be very much custom fitted out.
The only fault uncovered was a very noisy cockpit – inside had very low noise levels indeed – just the cockpit was noisy but they plan to correct that fault.
