The Marlow Legend 37 is the second model to be launched since David Marlow (of Marlow motoryachts fame) took over the Legend Yachts brand two years ago. In the 1990s, Legend had a factory building cruising yachts in Dorset and several key features that made those yachts so popular in the UK remain on the new versions.
For a more details, see the recent full-length Marlow Legend 37 review, or take a look at the boat for yourself with boats.com reporter, Rupert Holmes who recorded this Marlow Legend 37 video at the London Boat show earlier this year.
The cruising features that immediately catch the eye are the lack of a backstay, the metal arch to keep the mainsheet clear of the cockpit and the large pushpit seats in the aft corners of the cockpit. These combine to create a stress-free family cockpit area all the way to the stern.
The folding wheel is another nice touch removing a large obstacle whenever the boat is at rest.
Down below, the galley is the focus of attention with plenty of work surfaces and room for a built-in microwave, a front-opening fridge and more. American designs tend to emphasise home comforts in a way that Europeans do not, so this is bound to be popular with families and sociable groups.
