2020 Marlow 66E

Fort Lauderdale, Florida


"Quixotic" started out as David Marlow's personal yacht, but he only had time for a few short trips. She was featured in several boat shows before being purchased by her current owner. Quixotic will not be on the market long as her classic lines, attention to detail, superb craftsmanship, and overall presence, make her one of the most sought after Marlow's in her class! The 66 model is about as big as most owner/operators want to run. However, she has a full crew area with a private entrance for those that want a crew.

The interior of this Marlow Explorer brings the perfect blend of old-world craftsmanship, and space age materials, thus creating an environment that is both inspirational and distinctly unique to the Marlow brand.

This late model yacht has all the most popular options and has a CAT $0 deductible engine warranty paid through February 2026.


Smith Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Marlow Marine Sales, Inc..

The engine room has standing headroom and has been designed to allow easy access to all equipment. Attention to detail enables key maintenance access making it an owner-operator friendly vessel. The twin sea chests provide all sea water to the engine room through redundant sea chests that are cross plumbed, a much- improved safety factor over most boats built with ubiquitous inlets wherever it suits the builder with little to no regard to functional serviceability. Commercial and military vessels often use sea chests for the same reasons.

Two 21.5kW Onan generators in custom sound boxes and mounted forward in the engine room provide redundant electrical power at sea (each generator will independently carry the entire vessel’s electrical load). The dual, redundant, and supplementary water chillers and the start/finish of the circulating cold/hot water closed loop are here in the sound insulated machinery area keeping unwelcomed noises from waking guests in the middle of the night.

The Naiad stabilizer System is also found here in the engine room.

The fuel tank is located at the vessel’s center of gravity which translates into no requirement of fuel management for trim or ballast, allowing all supply and return valves to remain open unless equipment isolation is desired. Fuel levels can be checked via sight tube mounted up against the fuel tank on the forward part of the engine room where it is easily accessed and viewed. Placing fuel tanks forward of the engine room allows the full beam to be used for equipment placement providing easy access for maintenance.

Stainless steel engine beds atop carbon fiber stringers support the engines on soft motor mounts that reduce vibrations transmitted to the boat from the engine. The thrust plate absorbs the forward thrust and transmit it smoothly to the hull through the carbon fiber stringers.
