Marlow Explorer 80E on sale for $4.8 million
Welcome aboard! The large aft deck is your point of entry where your life-style guides the options for outdoor living and entertaining. Hidden grills, settee’s with a table or a chaise lounge can be built in for comfort and function while maintaining the beauty of the open space. Leaving the aft deck, entry into the saloon presents a long unobstructed view all the way into the pilothouse. The woodworking, as on all Marlow Explorers, is impeccable with grain matched veneers throughout achieved by the use of one single log to supply the veneers for the entire yacht. The immense expanse of saloon sole is a continuous run with no cross seams anywhere. With a minimum of ten coats of varnish, the interiors glow with a warmth that is luxurious and inviting. Regardless of the layout, there are features that are constant and consistent in all of our models – flawless joiner work, fully finished Formica lined storage areas, dovetailed drawers and high quality hardware. The built in sofa with storage and coffee table are on the port side facing two occaisonal chairs flanking their own coffee table on the starboard side. Additional features include a wine locker, entertainment center with wet bar and icemaker, TV cabinet with pneumatic lifts for invisible stowage and lovely bent wood signature overhead handrails.

Marlow Explorer 97E on sale for $6.5 million
The new 97E features a beam of 21’ and exceptional waterline length at around 83’, allowing displacement speed cruising with superior economy and significantly higher speeds than would be possible if we built a barge like design.
In fact we believe that with its Bureau VERITAS unrestricted navigation certificate, it will be the fastest, best performing raised pilothouse offshore yacht in the world with equal power. We have run this yacht since it’s arrival and have found a top speed of 29K and a very comfortable cruising speed of 23-24K. The range at 25K is about 950 miles and a range of 4000 miles is attainable with a speed of 9K.
Here Comes the Viking 62 Enclosed Bridge on sale for $4 million
Building a better boat every day is the philosophy that has guided the Viking Yacht Company for over a half century. During this period, new boats have been our mainstay positioning Viking as best in its class, with a stellar reputation for ground breaking innovation, envious performance and unimpeachable style.
The 62 Convertible is a showpiece in the Viking tradition with a fusion of leading edge engineering. To optimize its strength to weight ratio, the composite cored hull is resin infused with a high modulus of Dupont’s Kevlar, carbon fiber and knitted fiberglass laminates selected to reduce weight while increasing the overall physical properties of the structure.
Similarly, interior stateroom and hanging locker doors, as well as cabinet fronts throughout the yacht incorporate honeycomb coring for further weight reduction.
The 62 Convertible also has recessed engine cooling water pickups, refined propeller pocket entry to enhance flow to the five-bladed wheels for reduced noise with better traction, and modified architecture to the struts and rudders adding to an efficient and slippery running surface delivering speeds in excess of 42 knots with a pair of Caterpillar C32-A engines rated at 1,925mhp.
