Italian Elegance, American Ingenuity

    The Italian-designed Marquis 70, built in the Wisconsin heartland, has all the elegance of a southern European express yacht with practical features associated with American yachts. Two outer decks, for instance, allow for al fresco dining, and the fully enclosed pilothouse, with its wet bar, leather lounge, and plush helm chair, buttons down in rough weather providing push-button climate control. The Nuvolari & Lenard-designed salon, with its light-colored woods and impeccable stonework, is also a portrait of simple elegance, similar to Italian imports such as Ferretti and Azimut. Poltrona Frau handmade leather furniture, a gourmet galley, and strong natural light define the main deck. The lower deck has three staterooms, with the possibility of a fourth at the stern. The full-beam master suite, with shower, tub, and double sinks, has three vertical windows, offering a window to the sea. With twin Caterpillar C/18 diesels, the Marquis 70 is priced at $3.277 million. (920.822.1575, www.marquisyachts.com)
