Marquis Yachts Makes It Airy and Open

When Marquis Yachts introduced its Sport Yacht series five years ago, buyers gravitated toward the new big-boat models. With design inside and out by Nuvolari-Lenard, a renowned megayacht design firm, Marquis’ offerings boasted big-boat details that other production craft did not. The Marquis 630, the third model in the Sport Yacht series, continues the tradition.

A main attraction is that the entire main deck, from aft cockpit seating to helm, is completely open. It’s ideal for visibility while at the wheel, and it’s a great feature for entertaining, especially considering the aft glass doors can stay open. Two-tiered windows to each side, plus settees that recline, add to the inviting atmosphere.

But what really sets the Marquis 630 apart is the semicustom approach. If you never use a lower helm, for example, it’s no problem; you can replace it with a dining area, or just make the saloon that much larger. Better still, bring the galley up onto the main deck. Aboard the first Marquis 630, the galley is midlevel, between the main and lower decks. It’s open-air, keeping the chef involved in conversations in the saloon. But, its position precludes a fourth cabin below decks, yet another layout idea to make your mark on your Marquis. (www.marquisyachts.com)
