Project: Marlow 76LR Voyager

Marlow presents the project for the 76LR Voyager what will be the first of a new line from this renowned Explorer Yacht builder. The Voyager series is not just a new fancy name to some different looking Marlow, but is also a new Explorer Yacht concept which according to its builder features a very efficient semi displacement hull. The 76LR Voyager should also have a bulb and feature pod propulsion. This configuration should give about 30% better speeds and range versus full displacement hulls, and allow for trans oceanic capability without the need of extra fuel tanks. The 76LR Voyager will also have solar panels above the raised pilot house which reduces the need of continuous generator running often associated with this size of yacht. Accommodation is for a main deck with a spacious saloon having a U-shaped galley, and a master stateroom to forward up three steps with full view. Below is the space for a lower deck featuring four staterooms. A galley area is in the companionway allowing guests to prepare coffee or a snack without going to the main deck. To aft is the crew quarters with two cabins and having a lobby equipped with microwave, refrigerator, ice maker, table and lounge. Aft of this is the toy storage area accessed by a large hydraulic door.
