Vessel Walkthrough

GOOD TIME CHARLIE is striking with her signature Flag blue Awlgripped hull and Matterhorn white Awlgrip superstructure. The boat deck was extended to provide a fully protected cockpit where you will find a beautiful teak table that seats 6 comfortably with additional seating against starboard forward wall. As you walk around the outside of the yacht, you'll notice the meticulous details: built-in bow seating, forward dock entry doors and high bulwark, which provides a safe walkway around the entire yacht. The beautiful high gloss teak interior is one of only a few Marlow produced, and brings out the richness of the dark Burmese teak wood. The salon has a free-standing L-shaped seating area to starboard and features a large matching ottoman with storage. The flat screen TV is hidden away on a lift in a storage cabinet/table to port, which also houses the Bose entertainment system. Two comfortable chairs sit on either side with custom book shelving. The forward port side of the salon features a full wet bar including an ice maker and a full-size wine cooler with stunning Caesarstone pacific blue countertop. Located forward of the salon you will find an office area with custom file cabinetry and shelving. Here is where you will also find the private stairway to the master stateroom.


The galley is three steps up from the salon, and is a state of the art kitchen, a large U-shaped seating area for 8 providing a panoramic view for all. The galley features the finest appliances from Dacor, Sub-Zero, U-Line and Kitchen Aid. The custom large white tiled countertops are stunning.


Heading down the curved stairway to the staterooms, your attention is drawn to the quality of the wood, recessed hand rails, and the high gloss finish on the teak. At the bottom of the stairs to starboard is the additional stateroom with twin bunks, which has a foldaway wall, so this area can be open to the companionway when not used by guests. Forward is the VIP stateroom with a queen size bed on center line with en-suite head and shower. This head can also be accessed through the companionway allowing it to double as the day head. Moving aft and to port is the guest stateroom, with side by side twin beds and en-suite head and shower.


The Master Stateroom's private entrance is at the forward end of the salon. The king size bed is athwartships port allowing the creation of a very large fore and aft head to starboard. There is a shower, two sinks widely spaced with custom vanity between sinks on a beautiful marble top along with custom marble flooring with teak trim. Full length cedar-lined hanging closets fore and aft provide ample storage space for living aboard for extended periods of time. The washer and dryer are tucked neatly behind louvered teak doors. Shoji screens add just the perfect accent.  


You can access the Command Bridge either from the pilot house or by the cockpit stairway aft. The command bridge is striking with its high gloss teak interior. Aft of the helm station there is a large L shaped settee table with seating for seven. To port you will find a custom L shaped wet bar with a clear ice icemaker, refrigerator and sink all finished off with a custom blue tiled countertop with elegant trim.


The Command Bridge exterior deck has ample space for entertaining guests, which includes an L-shaped country kitchen with a built in Lynx gas grille, refrigerator and sink with lots of under cabinet storage. The hard top has been extended three feet for greater comfort in this area. To port is a custom large sun pad seating area. With more attention to detail, the non-skid panels have been accented with grey Awlgrip. The forward roof structure in front of the Command Bridge has the same grey accent and non-skid has been added for safety.

Engine Room

Entry to the engine room/lazarette/crew cabin is from the transom through a water tight auto assist door or a sea entry ladder through the rear deck seat or through the flush hatch in the cockpit floor. You pass through a large storage lazarette and twin birth crew cabin. Upon entering the engine room, you immediately notice the head room of more than 6 feet. This is a white engine room accented by polished stainless-steel piping and engine beds. New DeAngelo custom exhaust system accents this spotless room. The twin engines are soft mounted to reduce vibration and coupled with the Centaflex Drive system to further reduce vibration. Owner has spent a tremendous amount of time and effort making sure every aspect of the engine mount and coupler systems are perfect for optimum smoothness.

Salesman's Remarks

GOOD TIME CHARLIE is one of the finest examples of the Marlow Explorer 72E. A combined effort of David Marlow and an experienced Owner together have created a yacht that has performed above all expectations. An excellent cruiser in all types of weather, cruising at 19 knots, this boat provides a comfortable and safe cruise. GOOD TIME CHARLIE is a beautiful yacht and her Command Bridge and high gloss teak interior makes her truly one of a kind. The Marlow yachts are designed and built to cross the oceans of the world in comfort and safety while the proprietary Strut Keel© technology allows inland and island cruising with fully protected running gear. Marlow Yachts are certified by Bureau Veritas, ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), Lloyds Register, and ISO 9001, a status enjoyed by less than a handful of pleasure powerboat manufacturers worldwide.
