Luke Brown Yachts will have a dozen boats on display at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. HOOLIGAN V will be on display on B Dock at the Las Olas Marina. For any assistance in boarding please call the Central Agent Andrew Cilla 954-224-3933.
We have always been a fan of Marlow Yachts and in particular, the 78 Marlow Explorer. HOOLIGAN V is one of the best examples of this highly successful model. While there is little variation in the fit and finish of the Marlows that we have inspected, I feel that HOOLIGAN V's standard of finish exceeds the norm. The teak interior on the main deck is exquisite. The lower deck accomodations are finished off in a soothing light maple, which gives the illusion of more volume than there actually is and contrasts beautifully from the teak on the main deck. The soles on both decks are teak with inlaid holly.
HOOLIGAN V is one of the few 78 Marlow Explorers to be built with Caterpillar C18 diesels. These smaller engines are perfectly suited for the owners that choose to cruise in the more economical speed ranges. Furthermore, their small size affords far more space in the engine room to access machinery.
The Marlow 78 uniquely combines the special features of an offshore trawler with the speeds and versatility of a contemporary motoryacht. They afford their owners and guests and exceptionally, beautifully crafted interior, magnificent styling, with economical, and reliable offshore capability.
