  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details


“Shogai” is a Marlow Explorer 70 E Command Bridge.  The perfect cruising machine for today’s yachting adventurist: long range, express speeds in comfort, luxurious style in a safe and seaworthy yacht, demonstrating the removal of "compromise" from the equation of owning the perfect yacht.

This very capable offshore cruising yacht is powered with CAT C18’s, delivering a top speed of just over 25 ?nots, and cruising speed at 23 knots, yet sips just 9 GPH at 8.3 knots giving her a displacement speed range of over 1,800  miles. Her CE certification is by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance for Category A (Ocean). With impeccable level of finish throughout and built to the strictest standards, “Shogai” is filled with the notable touches of quality and performance that brand these Marlow Explorer yachts “Simply the Best”.

"Shogai" is striking with her oyster white hull and superstructure. The owner, an experienced yachtsman, has kept her in perfect condition at all times. The boat deck was extended to provide a fully protected cockpit. As you walk around the outside of the yacht you notice the details: no window frames, high bulworks which provide safe walkways around the yacht. When you enter the salon from the aft deck she feels much bigger than her 70' because the open floor plan allows you to see all the way through the yacht to the front windows. The beautiful teak interior is one of only a few done in high gloss which brings out the richness of the grain. The built in seating on the starboard side also features a large coffee table that raises and lowers so you can eat here as well. The flat screen TV is on a lift so it can be hidden away when not in use. There are two comfortable barrel chairs with a nice storage cabinet/table across from the built in seating. The forward end of the salon features a full bar including an ice maker and full size wine cooler.

It is accessed through a watertight door with a viewing port. All cables are neatly bundled, valves clearly labeled, plumbing color coded, gauges at eye level and plenty of light to work make this an ideal "boys toy room".

Each item has it's own shut-off valve for servicing. The two 900 gallon fuel tanks are just in front of the forward engine room bulkhead. This is the center of buoyancy of the yacht so your running angle will not change as your fuel level changes.

Salesperson's Remarks

This yacht is constructed with the most modern materials and techniques providing more strength with less weight than possible with conventional technology. The use of Kevlar, modified epoxy resins, and high density core materials allows the Marlow Explorer to be stronger than the heaviest of hulls at a fraction of the weight. Modern honeycomb and structural foam is used on every counter, cabinet and sole in the yacht. Even if speed is not a driving factor for you, the increased range and reduced fuel costs will be of great benefit.
