The 78-foot (23.77m) Marlow motor yacht INEVITABLE is a wonderful all-around family yacht with plenty of spaces for all to enjoy.

Built in 2008, INEVITABLE was constructed using the most modern materials and techniques available to provide more strength with less weight. The use of Kevlar, epoxy resin and high-density core materials allows the Marlow Explorer to be stronger than most hulls at a fraction of the weight. The use of modern resin-infused vacuum-assisted transfer is seen throughout the yacht. INEVITABLE cruises at 20 knots and her CAT C32 Acert engines create a top speed of almost 30 knots.

Marlow Yachts is responsible for the resplendent interior of INEVITABLE. Eight guests are accommodated in four lavishly styled staterooms, including a master suite, a VIP cabin, and two guest staterooms. Each cabin features timeless styling and classic accompaniments. Her interior is accented by beautiful teak and maple joinery throughout, and sumptuous furnishings that will make you feel right at home. INEVITABLE features crew quarters aft which can accommodate up to two crew on board.

INEVITABLE offers walk-around decks, an aft deck alfresco dining area with built-in settee and seating. The yacht also offers built-in foredeck seating, perfect for enjoying the view while cruising.  The sundeck features sunpads and a barbecue.

Full Details


INEVITABLE is constructed by Marlow Yachts from the most modern materials and techniques providing more strength with less weight than possible with conventional technology. The use of Kevlar, epoxy resin, and high density core materials allows the Marlow Explorer to be stronger than most hulls at a fraction of the weight. The use of modern resin infused vacuum assisted transfer is seen throughout the vessel. The result is a yacht that cruises at 20+ knots, increased range and reduced fuel costs.  The CAT C32 Acert engines (a $363,000 option with only 1,322 original hours) create a top speed of almost 30 knots, easily cruising at 22-24 knots, and creating long range potential at 8 to 9 knots if necessary.

The 78 Marlow Explorer is designed to maximize comfort inside and out for the owner and her crew.  A large aft deck, wide walk around decks, oversized Flybridge with lounge and boat storage all provide for ample room to relax and enjoy the surroundings.  Inside you will find 4 comfortable staterooms, a well-designed salon and dining area, a full function galley, and crew accommodations aft of the engine room.Professionally decorated by Patrick Knowles, her high gloss interior finish using a combination of teak and maple woods gives her a very elegant décor and provides a brighter, lighter feel below decks.

INEVITABLE is owned by an experienced yachtsman who hires a professional crew to manage the vessel.
