Often imitated but never duplicated this original series of Explorers from Marlow Yachts presented the cruising community with an opportunity to own a boat that can be operated by a couple yet offers all the comforts and amenities of much larger yachts which require crew.
TINKERTOY is hull 16 of the Marlow Explorer 65C/70E series of yachts, the most popular of their builds so far. One of the second generation of this series, she was built in Marlow's Tainan City, Taiwan facilities. When introduced at the 2002 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, the 70E immediately became the industry benchmark for larger, personal size yachts by offering the interior volume and accommodations of an 80’ boat in a smaller, more manageable, size. It presented an opportunity for a couple to cruise with or without crew.
