General Details

  This Marquis 40 looks very high-end...because it is. Drop-dead gorgeously styled by Nuvolari + Lenard inside and out, and engineered/built in the United States, yields a boat that features the best of all worlds. Her cherry interior joinery and modern look are stunning and is miles ahead of any Sea ray. Then, there is the sunroof that adjusts to the needed ambiance, the cockpit lounge that adjusts for added cockpit space utilization, and the very unique bulkhead doors which allow the salon and cockpit to become one...the boat shines inside and out, and appears as new. The reliable inline-six Volvos are the 435 HP version (the most powerful option offered), barely broken in, power the signature IPS 600 drives which allow a novice to dock this boat in short order. Very seriously for sale, the asking price is the lowest on the market, the boat is easily seen, please make an offer. Highly recommended.

Marquis' own, internal development team is comprised of veteran designers, engineers, propulsion experts and modelers that represent literally dozens of decades of large yacht experience with committed expertise in all marine disciplines. To make Marquis a world-class yacht builder, new standards were established to ensure each project maintained a higher level of commitment through every step of the construction process.
While they appear to be a product out of Viareggio, these boats are built in the U.S. of A

The naval design firm of Nuvolari-Lenard, from Venice, Italy, is internationally renowned as specialists in the design and construction of large, high-end production and custom yachts. This firm's expertise results from their direct involvement in a wide range of yacht-building activities, from design to total project management, to customized interior design, to serving as surveyors and owner's representatives during construction, sea-trial and delivery. Nuvolari-Lenard collaborated with Marquis in the development of Marquis Yachts distinctively sculpted exterior architecture.

The focal point of this boat is , uniquely enough, the combination of the cockpit AND the salon--the bulkhead doors separating the two are comprised of a full-length glass hinged unit on the left (for normal egress) plus a bi-folding unit on the right: when both are in full open position, the cockpit/salon areas become one, with only a high sill for separation.
The L-shaped galley is one step down forward from the salon on the portside, across from the raised helm area to starboard. The cook, therefore, is part of the conversation, including those seated at the settee/dinette.
Further forward and down a couple of steps--past the glassware storage/trophy case--are the accommodations consisting of a guest cabin (twins) to starboard, head with shower stall to port, and master stateroom up front.

Joinery & cabinetry are a well-executed cherry wood: fit & finish is very elegant. The overheads are trisected into large glass areas by mullions liberally sprinkled with blue LED lights--very sexy at night. The glass areas have motorized shades and, when opened up, and with the forward glass skylight open to the outside, plus the huge arching upper/lower sidewindows...well, it's spectacular and unlike any other salon we've seen.
The U-shaped settee and motorized up/down/cocktail/dining table are very modern/Euro in appearance: very structured with no flab. A flat screen TV hides within the portside cabinetry
  • Main breaker panel
  • Stereo speakers
  • 26" LCD TV
  • Airconditioning controls
  • Overhead blue LED lighting
  • Sconce lighting P & S

Down one step from the salon and truly part of it all, the galley is very Euro-looking: faux black/speckled granite countertops with angled stainless steel sink and silver cabinetry housing the refrigerator & microwave speak of no-nonsense efficiency. There is additional storage under the sole with access via the flip-up stairs leading to the forward cabins.
  • Ceran 2-burner stovetop
  • Electrical outlets--high-end Euro-look
  • Sink w/ Euro designer faucet
  • Dark hardwood sole
  • Overhead lighting
  • Liquor/glassware cabinet

Master stateroom
A centerline queen pedestal berth with innerspring mattress & storage underneath is lit by good natural lighting emanating from an overhead hatch plus two-per-side very retro-looking portholes and privacy drapes. There are carpeted steps, a 20" TV, CD player, small benchseat, and a largish hanging locker to starboard.

Another feature unique to this boat is the aft benchseat which powers fore & aft about 18" to allow for more cockpit space. A transom gate leads back to the built-in swim platform; the hullsides terminate here in a flying buttress fashion addding to the overall avant-garde styling. Owners & guests enjoy libations from the icemaker & refrigerator set on a pedestal table in front of the lounge. The CableMaster control lives back here, as does a washdown. Molded-in steps lead up to the sidedecks and are lit with courtesy lights. There is a hinged hatch in the cockpit sole which accesses the engine room via a stainless steel ladder.

There is a full suite of Raytheon electronics with two multifunction Ray screens flanking the very stylish winged 'M' steering wheel. The clutches/throttles fit the right hand and the IPS control joystick falls to the lefthand. There are analog fuel gauges placed up high, start/stop keys offset to the right away from errant knees, and windshield wipers & defoggers, plus a wide benchseat for two.

Mechanical systems
Although this is only a 14' beam boat, the inline-six Volvos allow for decent access in between and outboard. One steps on diamond plate here. Bilges, hullsides, and overheads are done in white and the lighting & visibility are very adequate. The short spacing between the longitudinal stringers is certain evidence of construction done to Class A Euro Directive CE spec, and this Marquis is perhaps the only boat in her class built to this lofty standard.

  • 50 Amp shorecord-Glendinning
  • 10 KW Kohler genset in soundshield

Guest cabin
Twin berths flank a nightstand (supporting the ubiquitous flat screen TV) with fabrics & vinyls done in creams & beiges with a chocolate beltline separation which are lit naturally by a skylight in the forward end of the cabin. A smallish hanging locker foretells visits by children and short-term guests.
