Like her smaller and larger sisters in the ever expanding product line, the Marlow Explorer 58E exhibits comparatively huge volumes of space compared to typical polyester and woven roving construction with inferior plywood bulkheads and wood framed bilges. By eliminating wooden supports, bulkheads and framing in favor of resign infused composite construction we have once again been able to bring a yacht to market with 79" of headroom in the main salon and lower accommodations areas, 74" in the engine room and a total height to the top of the hardtop of just 18'2". This low profile make a far superior sea boat with a drastically lowered center of gravity, while allowing the yacht to slip under many bridges an ordinary yacht in this size range would have to wait for.
The proprietary and protected Velocijet Strut Keels® are used to great success allowing propeller protection and down sea tracking that has the industries' experts raving. Like feathers on an arrow, these twin tails guide and stabilize the yacht making heavy downwind running a delight rather than a white knuckle experience.
Custom built epoxy fiberglass tanks, fiberglass fuel tanks (no corrosion) and the finest fittings available from the premier suppliers around the globe, the 58E will be, like her sisters, a yacht for the ages.
Old world craftsmanship blended with modern space age components and technology. Yachting will never be the same.
The owner of "Tied the Knot" and the family have enjoyed cruising in their new Marlow Explorer so much they just purchased a 70E. "Tied the Knot" is in perfect condition and is ready to cruise. She has all the best equipment available and has the best stabilization available with a Seakeeper Gyro and Naiad fin stabilizer system. She is comfortable at 8-10 knots with trawler like efficiency but will cruise at 21-22 knots all day too.

The CAT Engines have the Advantage warranty and is transferable to the new owner. The ZF Transmissions connect to the fluid filled shaft system through an intermediate shaft with two sets of U Joints, increasing efficiency and eliminating any on going alignment issues.

The shaft is fully enclosed in a tube full of synthetic lubrication oil. This system also replaces the conventional cutlass bearing with ball bearings for smooth operation for many years.
