The Salon is accessed from the aft through a set of sturdy double doors. Upon entry, you will notice the classic teak and holy flooring that ties in with the teak walls and cabinetry throughout. To starboard there is a large settee with ample storage underneath with an attached desk just forward of this seating area. To port “SAGA BOY II” has two comfortable recliners separated by a teak table. The aft starboard corner of the room houses a wine cooler under counter with glass storage above. The aft port corner has a bar-style setup that includes a refrigerator with ice maker, sink, bottle storage under counter, and additional glass storage above the counter. The center of the room is accented by a custom-built teak coffee table. As you look to the very forward section of the room, you can appreciate the buffet cabinet with 50” Samsung LED TV behind a tambour door.
Forward of the salon and up three steps brings you to the galley and dining area. The galley is well equipped and outfitted even for the most demanding of chefs. Black Galaxy countertops offer plenty of surface area in this space with ample storage all the way around. Just forward of the galley you will find a large U-shaped dining area with comfortable seating and table space with additional storage to both port and starboard. The 360 degree views from this dining area allow for a relaxed environment to soak in the beauty of your surroundings.
You can board “SAGA BOY II” from the swim platform or from one of the boarding gates on either side amidship. From the swim platform looking forward you will notice the unique divided transom with the single row of steps going up the middle of the stern up onto the cockpit. Once on the cockpit you will find two separate seating areas to the starboard and port aft corners of this space, each with a varnished teak table securely fixed to the deck. On the forward starboard corner of the cockpit there is storage space along with a docking station equipped with throttle controls and bow and stern thrusters. On the port side, are steps leading up to the upper aft deck with a door under these steps that provides access to the crew quarters and engine room.
The engine room has standing headroom and has been designed to allow easy access to all equipment. Placing fuel tanks forward of the engine room allows the full beam to be used for upgraded equipment placement. Attention to detail enables key maintenance access making it an owner-operator friendly vessel. The twin sea chests provide all sea water to the engine room through redundant sea chests that are cross plumbed, a much-improved safety factor over most boats built with ubiquitous inlets wherever it suits the builder with little to no regard to functional serviceability. Commercial and military vessels often use sea chests for the same reasons. Two 21.5kW Onan generators in custom sound boxes and mounted forward in the engine room provide redundant electrical power at sea (each generator will independently carry the entire vessel’s electrical load). The dual, redundant and supplementary water chillers and the start/finish of the circulating cold/hot water closed loop are here in the sound insulated machinery area keeping unwelcomed noises from waking guests in the middle of the night. The Naiad stabilizer hydraulic system is also found here in the engine room. The fuel tank is located at the vessel’s center of gravity which translates into no requirement of fuel management for trim or ballast, allowing all supply and return valves to remain open unless equipment isolation is desired. Fuel levels can be checked via sight tube mounted up against the fuel tank on the forward part of the engine room where it is easily accessed and viewed. Aft are the Seatorqe oil filled shaft systems for each shaft which greatly reduce friction, increase overall performance and reduce vibration contributing to the Marlow Explorer’s reputation for a “smooth ride.” Stainless steel engine beds atop carbon fiber stringers support the engines on soft motor mounts that reduce vibrations transmitted to the boat from the engine. The thrust plate absorbs the forward thrust and transmit it smoothly to the hull through the carbon fiber stringers.
A separate pump room is located below the forward berthing compartment with access from the companionway. This space contains the fresh water and drinking water filters and pumps, redundant water pump and water distribution manifold.
