“E” stands for explorer in Marlow Yachts talk, and this 59-footer (centerline length) is designed to head out into the open ocean. The Marlow 58E is designed to go (and go and go and go).
When Marlow replaced its 57 with the 58E (LOA: 59′ 1″; Beam: 18′ 6″), the fuel capacity grew by 40 percent to 1,500 gallons, thus increasing its range to 2,800 nautical miles. The redesign also enlarged the lazarette by 30 percent and gave more space to the twin 575-hp Caterpillar C9 engines housed in the stand-up engine room.
With a waterline length nearly as long as her length overall—more than 54 feet—the 58E offers a sea-kindly ride and more speed and range than other similar length models. Marlow boats also boast trademarked Strut Keels that protect the props and optimize tracking in a downwind run.
Inside, the three-stateroom, three-head layout benefits from
a wide 18-and-a-half-foot beam. The 58E is offered with a classic flybridge or with a command bridge that negates the need for a lower helm. With no bridge sharing space with the galley just aft, the dinette is especially roomy and features lovely views through the forward windows.
