97’ Marlow Explorer – Irish Rover

Auction Without Reserve

– Remote Bidding Available –

IRISH ROVER is the largest Marlow currently available on the market and is in excellent condition. She has very low hours and has always been maintained with an open checkbook and full-time captain. Her hull design, along with twin CAT C32 Acert engines, gives her the ability to cruise at 23 knots, topping out at 29 knots. 

The main deck offers a formal dining area to accommodate eight, separated from the main salon by a pillared, custom-sculptured glass divider that changes colors with lighting effects and contains a large pop-up television. The galley enjoys its own doorway to the side deck to make provisioning a breeze. The upper deck sky-lounge and command bridge are well arranged with plenty of space, a comfortable corner settee with table, and a day head. Just outside, the sundeck is equipped with an outdoor galley, complete with three stools, and a built-in barbeque, and a Jacuzzi spa. 

The master suite is conveniently located forward on the main deck, offering a wonderful panoramic view out of large windows. The master head offers an incredible hand-carved white marble tub, his and hers hand-carved marble sink basins, and a simply stunning black Shanxi granite floor.

Guests are also well accommodated on the lower deck with six staterooms offering a variety of space, including a very large suite in addition to two mirrored staterooms, and two cabins with double berths that are perfect for kids. A mini-galley located in the lower foyer is convenient for guests staying aboard to feel at home. The private crew’s quarters, located aft of the engines, are also well situated with their own mini-galley.

In addition, there is an alarm system throughout the boat, the forward section of the vessel has a watertight bulkhead door, and there is a central vacuum system throughout the yacht as well. And as with all Marlows, there are no laminate materials used, only quality woods — this one features Burmese Teak, Holly and Bamboo.

Lightly used, never chartered and a must-see for any buyer looking in the 100′ range.
