“Sand Piper” features a three stateroom layout with separate crew quarters aft. Each stateroom has a dedicated head including the crew. “Sand Piper” was built with the optional private stairway to both the owner's suite as well as the aft crew area & engine room.
All the way forward on the lower deck is the VIP stateroom with a queen berth and an ensuite head. Further aft to port is the second guest stateroom with two bunk beds and an ensuite head. This guest area is accessed by way of a stairway on the starboard side of the lower helm.
The master suite is located midship in the widest section of the vessel. The dedicated stairway is located in the forward starboard area of the main saloon. The master stateroom contains a king sized berth, an entire wall of lockers forward and on the aft side of the stateroom, down two steps, is an area with two additional hanging lockers and several drawers for storage.
The head runs the port side of the master stateroom. There is a door from the forward section of the master head leading into the port side guest head. This allows for a second head for the master cabin when available.
The master stateroom is one of the quietest areas on the yacht, shielded from engine noise by not only the fuel tank but also completely enclosed with core-cell foam, vacuum bagged composite structure and partitions of laminated core-cell foam sandwich construction that are all vacuum bagged together to add superior strength, sound and thermal insulation.
Access to the crew quarters aft and the walk-in engine room is located from a stairway located in the aft port corner of the main saloon. This configuration is fairly unique. Most Marlow's provide access by way of a hatch on the aft deck. “Sand Piper's” configuration is safer & far more convenient. The dedicated passageways to the owners suite and crew/engine room are fairly expensive upgrades.
The unique main deck configuration of the Marlow 70 offers the feel of a much larger vessel. “Sand Pipers” salon is elegant and tastefully decorated. Her solid teak and holly sole, beautiful teak joinery and custom furnishings creates a warm and comfortable ambiance. The TV is housed in the entertainment center with TV lift on the port side. Forward is a saloon bar containing a wine cooler, ice maker and liquor cabinet. Up three steps from the saloon is the pilothouse dinette area, galley, and lower helm.
