Marlow luxury yacht Explorer 97E takes pride in setting and meeting manufacturing standards allowing customers a great amount of flexibility in designing a yacht that fits their needs while satisfying the international standards organizations rigid oversight and requirements.

The 30.7m superyacht Explorer 97E Hull #1 has the enclosed command bridge option which allows one upper helm station with satellite control points in strategic locations, thus creating a spacious galley forward on the main deck and a full beam master stateroom on the main deck. Direct entry from the salon or thru a private door to the exterior private balcony allows for as much privacy as one wishes.

The Open Flying Bridge version introduced at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2011 features a stunning view from the aft salon forward to the lower pilothouse windshields. With no bulkheads to obscure the panoramic view, clear vision is available to the bow, nearly 100’ forward. The design flexibility is easily recognized when comparing the first two 97E hulls.

Explorer 97E yacht Hull #1 has six guest suites below deck with master on deck, whereas Hull #2 is a four stateroom yacht with the galley functioning as a country kitchen adjacent and the large cockpit aft acting as a patio for relaxing with sundown cocktails, al fresco dining or both.

Marlow superyacht Explorer 97E Hull #2 with its open flying bridge allows two efficient and luxurious command stations on board. The flying bridge with superb sightlines is fully enclosed with EZ2CY. Quickly stored for temperate weather this option allows for wind through the hair at 30+ knots and a superb ride capable for the oceans of the world. Either options allows space for extra toys on the large boat deck or an intimate evening of dining and dancing.

Clearly the enormous design and build capabilities enjoyed by Marlow Yachts own team of engineers, supervisors and artists create opportunity of total design for one´s lifestyle!
