70' Marlow 2004 TINKERTOY



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 their 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 only 70’. It presented an opportunity for a couple to cruise with or without crew. 

By the time TINKERTOY was built in 2004, Marlow had taken the knowledge acquired from the first 12 builds of this series, plus the input from their owners both current and potential, to create generation two of the 65/70 Explorers and she is the 3rd build of that generation. At the owners request, lighter woods were combined with the traditional teak interior on the stateroom deck giving her a larger more open feel below while maintaining the elegance for which Marlow had become known.

TINKERTOY has many other custom features throughout, not the least of which is the separate Master Stateroom entrance making the master suite totally private from the rest of the stateroom deck. In 2014/2015 she underwent a $500,000.00+ major refit including full exterior paint with Awlgrip T-115 and 2 finish coats of Awlcraft polyurethane topcoat. All her teak decks were replaced and her nonskid decks were renewed. The list goes on and on. Her current owner bought her in May 2016 and continued the tradition established by her 3 previous owners of constant maintenance and upgrades including 2 new air conditioning chillers in 2016. All her machinery is up to date and engine services are current.

TINKERTOY is your best opportunity to own one of these legendary cruising yachts in almost new condition at a fraction of the new build cost and without the 1 to 2 year wait.

Marlow Yachts use the most modern materials and construction techniques including resin infusion, Dupont Kevlar, Vinylester and epoxy resins with high density core materials, resulting in a hull, deck & superstructure with more strength and less weight than possible with conventional methods.

While the foundation is a conventional semi-displacement form, Marlow utilizes proprietary "Velocijet Strut Keel" technology. This system uses twin strut keels that surround the propeller shafts in hydrodynamic

fairings resulting in improved efficiency, tracking and stability. They also offer running gear protection, and modest propeller pockets keep draft to just 4 feet, 5 inches.

Free-standing umbrella on flybridge.
