St Petersburg, Florida, United States
MI CASA is the perfect size to have all the conveniences of large yacht with none of hassles or expenses. With her twin engines and bow thruster she docks like a dream. This beautiful yacht and is ready to view in St. Petersburg Florida.
The new Marlow 32 is 36'8" (11.19 m) LOA with a beam of 10'10" (3.30 m) and a displacement of 11,725 lbs. (5,318 kgs.). She could be the most economical 32' couple's cruising boat on the planet.
Mission of the Marlow Hunter 32
Company owner David Marlow's intention with the new Marlow 32 is to occupy the space in the marketplace that was held for many years by the bankrupt Mainship brand -- namely, building an affordable cruising boat that looks salty for the cruising couple on a budget. This is a boat designed to appeal to a wide audience of Baby Boomers just now making plans to sail into the sunset as their reward for a lifetime of hard work -- and Marlow aims to make that dream possible with both a reasonable original price and low operating expenses.
Here we see the new 32 going close to her top speed of 16 mph.
Not Your Father’s Marlow
The most important difference between the new Marlow brand in its former life is the mind-set of the new owner and what he is trying to achieve. Like the previous owner, Marlow wants to build an affordable cruising boat and a good value. But as anyone who has seen his ads over the last decade for Marlow Yachts’ large cruising boats knows that David Marlow is very serious about providing a solid, comfortable vessel, one that is economical to operate and that has superior performance to existing boats on the market.
Quest for Performance.
Marlow’s orientation is one that respects classic lines and traditional yachting interiors. But he is also a maverick in as much as he is not hesitant to confront conventional wisdom or taken-for-granted concepts. He has no interest in building a “me-too” product. Many of the things he has done with his large, multi-million dollar yachts have been innovative and refreshing.
Like any entrepreneur Marlow wants to make money, but that is not why he got into the business. Rather, he bought Hunter Mainship to bring his lifetime of boat-building and marine industry expertise to a category of boats – both power and sail – that he feels has not been well served by American builders. Indeed, the new 32 will be built in the same Florida facility that the old Mainship once used. They will not be built in China like his large motoryachts.
Marlow’s goal is to build more practical, better performing cruising boats that have state-of-the-art innovations (read: which are often Marlow innovations), that are well-built at a reasonable price. He also wants to build boats that owners can be proud of even though their purse is not as large as those who buy the multi-million dollar large motoryachts that he makes in China
