Vessel Walkthrough

TELEMETRY is striking with her signature Awlgrip Flag Blue 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, inlaid with blue and white accents, that seats 6 comfortably with additional seating against the 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 soles throughout TELEMETRY are teak with ebony, rather than holly, accents.

The salon has 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 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 modern galley, a fully state-of-the-art kitchen, is three steps up from the salon with an open floor plan. A large dining table and a U-shaped seating area for 8 provides convenience, with wonderful panoramic views. The galley features the finest appliances from Bosch, Dacor, Sub-Zero, U-Line, and Fisher-Paykel. The newly installed quartz countertops boast metallic blue flakes against a slate background. The galley is professionally equipped and stunning!

Heading down the curved stairway to the guest staterooms, your attention is drawn to the quality of the wood, recessed handrails, and the high gloss teak finish. At the bottom of the stairs to starboard is the additional stateroom with twin bunks. 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 athwartship port allowing the creation of a very large fore and aft head to starboard. Full length cedar-lined hanging closets fore and aft provide ample storage space for living aboard for extended periods of time. The new Bosch washer and dryer are tucked neatly behind louvered teak doors. The huge head has a large shower, two sinks widely spaced with custom vanity between sinks on a beautiful marble top along with custom marble flooring with teak trim.

Returning to the galley, and heading up the steps to the Command Bridge, which can also be accessed by aft cockpit stairway, you immediately notice its striking layout and high-end amenities. Aft of the helm station there is a large L-shaped 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 helm station has been completely refitted with a new carbon graphite façade sporting the latest in electronics and navigation equipment.

The Command Bridge exterior deck has ample space for entertaining guests with its L-shaped outdoor 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. 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.

The Crew Cabin has twin beds, a fully appointed head with shower, refrigerator, microwave, and TV with additional, ample storage.

TELEMETRY is a beautiful yacht and her Command Bridge, high gloss teak interior, teak soles inlaid with ebony makes her truly one of a kind. 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.
