“GRATITUDE” is a ONE OF A KIND Marlow Explorer 72E-LR (Long Range) specifically designed for long range cruising by one of the most passionate and experienced yachtsman of them all, David Marlow. Originally named “REBEL YELL,” she made her impressive debut at the 2006 Miami International Boat Show. This yacht was designed and cruised by Mr. Marlow which has allowed her to have lived a very privileged life that included several long-range trips up the eastern sea board and “down island.” When not at sea, this vessel enjoyed a pampered life in a covered storage shed at the Marlow Marine Service facility in Snead Island, Florida, where she was lovingly cared for as Mr. Marlow’s LONG RANGE Explorer. Now is your chance to continue the pride of ownership of this beautiful masterpiece as she is available for sale with numerous cruising lifestyle upgrades, comfort and convenience upgrades, and many recent service items completed.
GRATITUDE” was built and certified to Lloyds GMBH for Offshore Class One (Ocean Class) and is ready to provide her new owner with a quality long range cruising yacht second to none. This Command Bridge yacht is powered with C-18 CATs with 1,015 HP each. This Marlow Explorer includes numerous serious upgrades when it comes to the Long-Range ability of a yacht. Some of these key “LR” features include a wave-piercing bulbous bow, Kevlar lined hull, deck tie downs, custom air intakes for the engine-room and extra-long-range fuel capacity. The large amount of fuel capacity (3450 gal) enables comfortable long-range voyages of over 3,000 miles at 9.5 knots due to her modified hull design that is focused on better efficiency and performance at hull speeds and the proprietary Velocijet Strut Keels while also giving her the ability to “get there” at speeds of 16-18 knots for fast passages or emergency situations. “GRATITUDE” is the bench mark in go anywhere yachting due to her hull design that allows for long range cruising with excellent cruising speed options.
