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.
