    Upon boarding this 53C Marlow Explorer,  you will be amazed by the volume of space available to you. The cockpit is spacious due to the 18'2" beam, which provides wide, easy to navigate side decks to let you move  freely from stem  to stern.  Silver Lining has  a day head in the cockpit, and a bench seat aft that gives you a great  spot to relax and enjoy your cruise.  Beneath the aft seating is the head for the crew cabin below, which is accessed through  a flush teak
    hatch  in the cockpit. Descending the stairs  to the crew cabin reveals single berths both port and starboard. Aft lies the head with Sealand VacuFlush toilet, sink and hand  shower with Grohe  fixtures. As with all Marlow Yachts,  the fixtures are the best  available, whether found in the main salon, crew cabin or engine room. Forward  of the crew cabin through  a watertight  door is the well laid out engine room with 6'2" headroom, housing all the appointments that mark the Marlow machinery spaces as the standard of the industry.  Returning to her lovely teak covered deck allows entry to the spacious salon  through  two unique  doors  that open  to allow large furnishings, appliances and other shipboard needs without disassembly. In mild weather the doors  may be left fully open  for a grand  view aft and fresh air circulation throughout the salon. Entering  the salon, the high gloss  teak and holly floors stunning in every  detail, beautifully crafted  from the same teak log used throughout the yacht.  This is a Marlow specification for all yachts built today  and tomorrow.  Marlow Yachts  are crafted  with intense pride, great  detail and forward thinking at every  instance.

    There  is a full width pass-thru from the salon  to the galley, along  with fine teak cabinetry and a well designed glass cabinet in the wetbar  area. The countertop in the wetbar,  as in the galley, is Raw Silk, which is a peach, white, grey and black swirl.

    There is a full width pass-thru from the salon  to the galley, allowing expansive views aft of the yacht for docking and cruising comfort. Abundant perfectly fitted and finished storage assures plenty of places for gourmet food or cocktail snacks. The U-shaped galley has  all the amenities found in fine kitchens in elegant homes, with a large dinette seating 5-6. Located and appointed similar to kitchens that have  become social centers in fine homes, entertaining involves all the guests while the owner or captain handle the navigating  duties  from a plush Stidd helm chair centrally located. The luxurious helm chair is adjustable in height,  and swivels to become another dining spot at the large table and dinette  so the captain can  enjoy a meal with the guests that are aboard. The pilothouse blends perfectly with the galley and dining area forming a hub of entertainment while you are underway, dockside or at anchor. With the complete accessory display panel  above the helm, it makes it easy to monitor the yachts systems without having to leave  your seat. Forward  and starboard in the pilothouse are the teak steps with clear nonskid  and recessed handrail to help guide  you down to the staterooms. At the bottom of the steps lies the guest stateroom.

The crew cabin with private  head and shower, a feature seldom or never  found in this category yacht.  The original owner of this yacht had limited mobility.  To address this, Marlow Yachts  placed extra handholds throughout the vessel and spaced all steps a little closer  together.
