The Pilothouse in an open bridge boat would have a lower helm, but this is unnecessary in a yacht with a fully protected air-conditioned and heated Command Bridge vessel like "Prop 23." This pilothouse area has been built as a large dining area. It has a big U shaped settee and large teak table. A large dedicated dining area is a feature usually reserved for yachts well over 60' but "Prop 23" accomplished it in a 49E. With the dining area in the same area as the galley it makes for a great living and gathering place.

Hull and Exterior
Notice the superb finish of a Marlow Explorer on the INSIDE of the hull and deck. The Full Stack Infusion process Marlow invented, developed, and employed produces a textbook fiber to resin ratio that can NEVER be approached by hand lamination. The protective Portuguese bridge with abundant storage and comfortably sized covered walk-around decks make this yacht a pleasure when handling various on deck cruising or docking tasks. The yacht is built using 3 major molds eliminating many secondary bonding operations creating a stronger lighter structure that will stand the test of time.
The raised pilothouse, Portuguese bridge, wide side decks, and state of the art semi- displacement hull makes the Marlow Explorer one of the most comfortable,and safest yachts in any sea condition. The side decks are fully protected by fiberglass bulwarks topped with teak cap rails that are waist high aft and higher forward. The stainless steel anchor is set up with all chain on the dual gypsy windlass. The bow rail is heavy oval stainless steel package. Both the pilothouse and the flybridge offer great vantage points and visibility with socially inviting settings and for piloting the yacht.
