Marlow-Hunter unveils new models at dealer meeting

Marlow-Mainship MM37

Marlow-Mainship MM37

Marlow-Hunter, the manufacturing arm for Hunter sailboats and Mainship trawlers, now known as Marlow-Hunter and Marlow-Mainship, recently brought together dealers and prospective dealers for the formal unveiling of the revamped introduction of the MM32 and MM37 at the Marlow Yachts Sales facility in Palmetto, Fla.

“When I bought the assets of Mainship Corp. and moved it to the Hunter facility in Florida, where sailboats have been built for over 40 years, I had a vision and set my marching orders in place to build each one better than the one before,” owner and chairman David E. Marlow said in a statement. “I believe I do build world-class poweryachts under the Marlow brand which are unprecedented in quality and appeal. That same quality I want portrayed in the Marlow-Mainship line.”

One portion of the day consisted of open-water demonstrations on both models from Marlow-Mainship engineering and sales staff. Marlow took the wheel of the new two-head, two-stateroom MM37.

The detail changes in the building processes on the MM also were presented to the dealer group, along with a new marketing campaign for the company: Feel the Quality … Experience the Value.

“We are now utilizing the highest-quality gelcoats and resins in the marine industry; utilizing materials such as Kevlar and Nida-Core, one of the strongest support materials designed for the space shuttle, in our hulls and decks,” Marlow said. “On the interior we are using real woods with real names; anti-bacteria gelcoat in the heads and galley; ball-bearing slides on all of our drawers; and Corian countertops, to name a few. Yes, it costs more; however, the value is there. I will not settle for less.”
