The ME53C was created in response to customer's repeated requests for a smaller version of the previously introduced larger Marlow Explorers. This yacht is fully capable of extended ocean cruising but is easily managed by a couple. The 53C's large fiberglass fuel and stainless steel water capacities allow far ranging destinations and the unique and proven hull design guarantees comfort in less than ideal conditions should they arise. The ME53C will astonish you with the internal volume. With a beam of only 2" less than the 57-65' series, it provides the wonderfully spacious stand up engine room Explorers are noted for and commodious interior spaces from the saloon to the staterooms. There are three staterooms below, master and VIP, with full heads and one more guest stateroom that can double as an at-sea office. The u-shaped galley is in the aft part of the raised pilothouse and features every convenience and appliance to make your galley duties a pleasure. The dinette is next to the helm and is comfortable, roomy and presents a lovely view through the pilothouse windows. Two steps down from the pilothouse is the saloon with built-in seating that doubles as storage with pneumatic lifting hinges, wet bar with storage, TV/Stereo cabinets and lovely teak coffee table.
