New Model: Marquis 500 Sport Bridge

Marquis 500 Sport Bridge is the new 2009 model from the US builder part of the Genmar Group. Like all the latest Marquis since the 420 the new 500 Sport Bridge is a design of Italians Nuvolari-Lenard of Venice. The new Marquis 500 Sport Brige is a performance yacht born out of the lines of the 500 Sports Coupe, offering a flybridge along with a fully equipped salon helm station. Power is supplied by three Volvo Penta diesel engines; standard 370hp or optional 435hp units with IPS rotating pod drive propulsion. This results in superb low speed torque; thrilling top-end performance and exceptional joy stick controlled slow moving maneuverability, while being more efficient than traditional shaft driven propulsion systems. The low profile 500 Sport Bridge is available in two versions, single or double helm station below option, sun pad aft or by the helm or bigger seating dining area. Lounge space is available throughout, choose the privacy of the triple-wide fore-deck lounge or the contoured bridge lounge or the spacious sun pad aft of the bridge. With the opening of the aft bulkhead doors, galley, salon, cockpit and swim platform are integrated into a single level social area with additional cockpit space available thanks to a transom aft bulkhead movement. The Marquis 500 Sport Bridge offers a three cabin two head interior, appointed with highly finished woodwork, custom crafted from a number of exotic hardwoods.
