This motor yacht is constructed from the most modern materials and techniques providing more strength with less weight than possible with conventional technology. The use of Kevlar, modified epoxy resins and high density core materials, propriatery high pressure lamination system, vacuum bagged and engineered sandwich construction allow the Marlow Explorer to be strong and light. The use of modern honeycomb and structural foams is made on every counter, cabinet and sole in the yacht.

The result is a yacht that cruises at 24 knots with increased range and reduced fuel consumption as a result of its reduced weight.

Featured are moulded FRP flush window frames, laminated and tempered window glass, venturi windscreen with s/s safety rail, Exalto heavy duty windshield wipers and washers, teak decks and hidden fuelling port with ant-spill catch
