Tortuga Yacht Description

This unique and superbly well-kept 65C Marlow Explorer is this Yachtsmans' 2nd Marlow Explorer and his third is currently under construction. The Marlow 65 provides you with the interior volume of a much larger yacht for extensive entertaining while still maintaining the ability to be owner operated by many. The current owner has had a part-time Captain since delivery and it shows. With Marlow's proprietary VELOCIJET Strut Kells, classic elegance, and modern engineering "Tortuga" is ready for coastal cruising or extended blue water adventures. Her generous freezer space, water maker, dive compressor, 1810 gallon fuel tank, and shallow draft make her the perfect Bahamas boat.

This classic motor-yacht features a full walk around deck with protected Portuguese bridge. This is the safest design for cruising. High rails and good handholds make it quick and easy to move about when docking. The natural Teak decks are not only beautiful they also offer the best traction when wet and are much safer than typical non-skid decks.

The windows are tinted dark providing privacy and they help keep the strong sunlight out making the vessel easier to cool. The design creates more livable space than other style vessels.

The Marlow Explorer was built in a way that reduces weight to make her more efficient when going fast or slow. She has a unique keel and tunnel design providing a shallow draft and protected propellers. You will not find a finer vessel for cruising with your family.


Tortuga has a beautiful satin teak interior with Teak and Holly Floors throughout. Italian and Danish lighting illuminates the space. The starboard side of the salon has large comfortable U shaped settee that has ample storage beneath. Across from the settee in the aft corner is large Samsung TV hidden in a beautiful teak cabinet with an electric lift. Forward of the entertainment center on the port side you find two large chairs for comfortable seating. The Wet bar forward has a Subzero wine cooler, U-Line ice maker, sink, and liquor cabinet.

Moving forward brings you up 3 steps to the pilothouse where you will find the galley. If any of the crew get sea sick having the Galley up is the way to go. For many, being able to see out at the horizon is the key to not getting sick. The galley is well-equipped with top of the line appliances and plenty of storage for provisions and cook wares. It is U-shaped with beautiful Crema of Marfil counter tops creating a lovely setting for entertaining guests in the pilothouse, or communicating with people in the main salon.
