PIVOT, the 2013 Marlow Explorer 97E CB, is an incredible design. She sleeps as many as 14 in 6 staterooms and has crew accommodations for 4. Thanks to an interior re-design, this boat has a much different look than any other Marlow. Beautiful teak joinery from the factory, accents many surfaces that are now covered in whites and blues for a bright, sophisticated feel. Upgraded systems like Naiad Fin Stabilizers, Seakeeper Gyro Stabilization, and two 1,400gpd Sea Recovery water makers make experiences aboard even more comfortable. Her 5,000 gallon fuel capacity enables a range of over 3,500 miles with plenty in reserve. Although she has an enclosed flybridge, there are more than enough outdoor areas for fresh air, including a second galley on the upper aft deck.
