The 65' Marquis bristles with high-end touches that mark it as a world-class yacht. All plumbing fixtures are manufactured for Carver in Italy by Valli and Valli, and the door hardware is heavy, solid, and stylish.
Nearly everything displays the Marquis logo giving the feel of a custom yacht. The stainless steel work, particularly around the anchor and in each aft cockpit corner—all done in house—is a work of art. And not only can those corner line-handling stations have line bins have spigots inside to make rinsing them easier.
The attention to detail here is impressive, for example, the master head with his and hers (hers being significantly larger) facilities.
The 65 will not be mistaken for another yacht, and that unique look belies a major engineering achievement. Believe it or not, her entire deck and house, including the sole, is a single piece—and it’s the product of a mold that’s quite an accomplishment. It has eight major pieces and another two dozen or so small ones to allow for all the three-dimensional surfaces.
The unibody is noteworthy for the engineering, but it’s more important because it obviates leaks and squeaks and significantly reduces torquing. To make sure, the 65’s hull also has its own deck to which the deckhouse bolts and bonds, so it, too, is a much more rigid structure than conventional designs that depend on a separate deck to keep the hull from flexing.
As for that feel that you’re on a much larger boat, credit goes to the designers its use of 3D CAD that allowed engineers to create full-scale models of all major living spaces and create 6’8” headroom nearly everywhere. The designers admit that much changed after they were able to walk around these plywood mockups.
Beyond the cockpit entry door is an uninterrupted vista that takes in the saloon, dining room, galley, pilothouse and the horizon ahead. It is not easy to keep such a space from looking long and narrow, especially when a yacht carries full side decks, but the designers achieved it through a combination of several techniques.
First, there is an abundance of windows along the sides of the house, expanding the apparent width of the room. Second, partial dividers-the port one holding the galley’s refrigerator/freezer and the starboard one serving as a base for the -visually differentiate the saloon from the remainder of the deck. Finally, the helm area is elevated slightly, providing a better view for the captain, who sits centerline on a comfortable Stidd helm chair, and his guests, who can relax nearby on the circular settee forward of the galley.
The feeling here, and throughout the Marquis, is one of refined modernity. There are no sharp corners, with joinery-edge moldings and bulkhead knuckles displaying large radii that are attractive and safe at sea. All woodwork is cherry with a deep, high-gloss finish. Veneer grain patterns are well matched, and many countertops are cut from burl to offer visual contrast.
Belowdecks, the Marquis carries six guests in three cabins clustered around a marble-sole lower foyer (plus crew quarters via the engine room door). The VIP stateroom, forward with a queen island berth, has cedar-lined lockers to port and starboard. There’s also a smaller guest cabin to port, with twin berths and an en suite head that doubles as a day head. Both guest heads have showers that are equipped with seats and grab rails.
The master stateroom, positioned amidships, is as large and well appointed as some 100-footers. His-and-her baths flank a centerline tub, and the clear glass enclosure can be rendered opaque instantly, at the flip of a switch. Stowage is abundant, with multiple drawers and a locker to starboard that is not only a walk-in space, but a “walk around in space. A settee and vanity complete the outfitting.
The Marquis 65 is a dream under way, both at sea and in tight quarters. She rides like a much larger yacht, yet handles like one much smaller. Half the pleasure of this yacht would be in driving her.
The 65 has 6' headroom in the engine room, accessed via a watertight transom door and passing through the crew quarters. Once you’re inside you'll find impressive details like sight gauges for each 600-gallon saddle tank, powerful supply and extractor fans, underwater exhausts with muffled bypasses, and a lack of clutter, thanks to separate spaces outboard of the crew quarters for gensets, watermakers, A/C compressors, and other gear.
