Dutch is a beautiful example of a bristol condition Marlow Explorer that most yachtsmen would think was a new vessel. She has been impeccably maintained and was upgraded and outfitted with the best available equipment when she was built. With upgraded C-18 CATs and a full hydraulic package she is built for the cruising couple that wants to travel extensively. She can cruise 20+ knots all day or do 1500 miles nonstop at 8 knots.
Rather than choosing to build a traditional 3-stateroom boat, this owner opted to build 2 extra large staterooms with a bunk over the laundry area. This essentially gives you two master staterooms each with its own large head and a berth for a 3rd guest plus crew. The master stateroom is as you’d expect: palatial in size, with his-and-her heads separated by a shower, plus four hanging lockers, and a bureau with large liveaboard drawers. Using the full 18-foot beam, the stateroom includes a settee so the owners can have their own sanctuary. The VIP cabin forward has been greatly enlarged to provide a second master suite with an oversized head and shower. The crew’s quarters is also finished to the same level as the guest areas, which can be used as another stateroom or storage area. It has two comfortable single bunks plus a private head with a shower. The crew cabin has a separate entrance from the cockpit. The salon is warm and inviting, with large windows and meticulous joiner work everywhere. There is a desk built into the forward corner complete with a file drawer, so one can work with a view, if necessary, while cruising.

This 61E MK2 has beautiful lines and is equipped with Twin Disc Quick shift transmissions with trolling valves make for easy maneuvering. This is augmented by an Italian-made Xenta VMA Plus joystick that neatly merges the conventional prop system with hydraulic Side-Power bow and stern thrusters to give this Marlow Explorer pod-like dockside maneuverability. The matching joysticks on the bridge and in a foldout cockpit docking station and an additional remote joystick gives complete and easy operational flexibility. This system has the “Skyhook” feature that will hold the boat in a position. It’s perfect for short-handed or couple cruising.
As you step into the cockpit you will find a nice bench seat with a good size teak table that can be set up with free standing chairs to provide seating for 4-6 people comfortably. Upon entering the salon and you will find a large built in seating area to starboard and two comfortable recliner chairs to port. The forward wall features a large TV and Bose Surround Sound System. There is a Subzero refrigerator and sink in the salon as well.
Ascending 3 steps to the pilothouse you have a galley aft, and a helm station and seating area forward. The galley is well laid out and has excellent storage. The feature of having the galley up will make the cook much more comfortable at sea as this is an area of least movement and excellent visibility. The galley has everything you need for an extended time on board and offers plentiful counter space for preparation.
From the forward starboard side of the pilothouse there are stairs that will take you to the lower deck. As you descend to the lower deck you find a semi-enclosed stateroom with a large cabinet beneath that houses the washer and dryer.
Aft is the full beam master stateroom with his and her heads. This is a stateroom that you would normally find on a much larger yacht. It features a full king size bed, an abundance of drawer and hanging locker space and is also full beam with port lights in each side making the room feel very open. The port lights are equipped with Shoji Screens for privacy and light diffusion.
Forward is the VIP stateroom with a full Queen size berth and a very large head. Any VIP guest will feel at home with this second master stateroom and private head.
From the aft deck you can descend to the cockpit stairs where you will find a crew cabin; of which, any family member can comfortably enjoy as personal quarters. This cabin is fully finished like the rest of the yacht and air conditioned. Additionally, this room has its own head, shower, TV, closet, beverage refrigerator and microwave.
From the aft deck or the inside stairs to the port of the galley you can ascend to the flybridge. The flybridge features two Stidd helm chairs and a full helm control station. There is also an L settee with a large table. There is additional seating to port next to the Subzero refrigerator, sink, and electric grill.
The cockpit has a nice built-in seat with a teak cockpit table. There is seating for 6 if you add 3 deck chairs to the forward side of the table. There are wing doors at the forward end of the cockpit, that when closed, shield the aft deck from wind and spray on inclement days. The side decks are wide and have high bulwarks and stainless-steel safety rails allowing those that are helping tie the dock lines full safe and secure. At the forward starboard side of the cockpit there is a flush door that provides access to a slide out control station. This station has a set of Glendinning engine controls, Sidepower thruster controls and a Xenta Joystick that fully integrates these functions together making docking very simple.
At the forward end of the pilothouse the Portuguese bridge provides the working deck shelter from the wind and seas. There is a very large storage compartment for fenders, lines, or deck equipment. The forward center doors provide access to the foredeck where you find the twin anchors, hydraulic Maxwell windlass, fresh and salt water wash down, and port and starboard 50 A Glendinning Cablemaster shore power cords.
The 1500 gallons fuel tank and water tanks can be filled from either side of the yacht.
The boat deck has a 13' Boston Whaler dinghy and a 1,000 lbs Aritex davit with Full hydraulic positioning and rotation- telescoping making launching her safe and easy.
The swim platform is accessed via port and starboard cockpit stairs. The swim platform also has a folding swim ladder making getting in and out of the water very easy. On the sides of the swim platform small doors house the port and starboard 50 A stern Glendinning cablemasters, fresh and salt water wash down faucets, oil change system discharge, and hot and cold fresh water hand held shower. The swim platform is secured by removable stainless-steel staples. The stainless steel cleats are oversized and recessed so you do not snag your foot on them.
When you enter the salon from the aft deck you feel the spaciousness of the vessel's 18'2" beam with the salon and galley to the forward windows. The tinted windows and Ocean Air Silhouette blinds allow for just the right amount of light to enter the room. The aft salon entrance is through a pair of large doors that can open fully to connect the aft deck space with the salon. This door has Ocean Air Silhouette blind as well to provide privacy when needed. The large settee to starboard is upholstered in Ultraleather with two leather reclining chairs to port. On the starboard side, forward of the settee, you will find a desk built into the forward corner equipped with ample storage, complete with a file drawer, so one can work with a view, if necessary, while cruising. The overhead teak valance on the starboard side has slots that diffuse the air-conditioning through the room.

The crew cabin is very self sufficient with a full head and shower, twin bunks, microwave, refrigerator, TV, and a separate AC unit. The crew cabin is entered from a cockpit stairway on the aft deck so the crew can come and go without entering the salon for easy and safe access to the engine room underway.
The engine room is well lit and air conditioned. The bilges are finished white and have removable teak grates in the center bilge area. The Caterpillar C-18 Engines are on stainless mounts that are set on Carbon fiber engine beds to save weight.

There are 2 intake and 2 exhaust fans to cool down the space after running. The two AC chillers with titanium coils are outboard of the starboard engine. The fuel tank is forward separating and insulating the engine room from the living space forward. The fuel tank has an industrial quality glass sight tube with bronze shut off fittings. The water maker is outboard of the Port engine. Two Onan 17kW generators are outboard and fully accessible.
