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.
