Riding on a moderate dead rise hull with cored hullsides and a solid fiberglass bottom, The Marquis 59 lavish accommodations rival her European counterparts in both luxury and design. Thje split level salon stretches unbroken from the sliding entryway doors to the pilothouse windshield. Ultra leather settess and cherry cabinets highlight the aft salon while the galley and dinette are forward on the pilothouse level. A full service galley boasts solild granite countertops and sub zero refrigeration. On the lower level, the master stateroom is aft tucked in beneath the salon and includes a king bed as well as 2 large hanging lockers. The VIP stateroom is forward and features a queen island bed and the 3rd stateroom features over/under bunks. On deck a curved staicase in the cockpit leads to a huge Hardtop covered flybridge with full plexi enclosure and lounge seating, wet bar and grille and 3 helm/companion seats behind helm station.
the way forward is the VIP stateroom with queen sized berth, plenty of
storage, a flat screen TV/DVD player, its own stereo CD player and
generous lighting. Private Access to the VIP Bath. Aft to Port you have
the upper/lower bunk stateroom with the guest head across the hall to
starboard. Aft of the landing area one enters the beautiful master
stateroom with a full Centerline king-sized bed. This comfortable and
luxurious stateroom boasts a huge head with a full size tub and shower
enclosure and voluminous closet and storage space. There is of course a
flat screen TV/DVD and stereo CD system in the master as well.
From the landing one takes the beautiful cherry trimmed staircase to the salon. All the way forward on the main deck is the sky lounge with its C-Shaped leather covered dinette lounging area.
Aft of that to starboard is the spacious galley complete with granite countertops, custom built in, slide chest style dishwasher, Subzero stainless steel refrigerator and freezer.
Opposite the galley along the port side is extra custom cherry cabinetry with built in china and glass storage. Aft of the galley to Starboard is a custom Flexsteel leather covered couch with storage inside. Opposite is a matching Flexsteel sofa with double recliners and a Flexsteel upholstered chair. Out through the beautifully crafted heavy stainless steel heavy sliding glass doors to the spacious aft deck with a beautiful custom teak hi/lo table.
Through the transom door down to the hydraulic swim platform will you bring you to the water tight entrance door to the lazerette/crew quarter area. Access to the engine room is through a large hatch on the aft deck. Up the molded fiberglass stairway from the aft deck is the beautifully appointed bridge with plenty of seating, a Gaggenau Electric Grill, wetbar with icemaker and separate fridge/freezer. There is a large flat screen TV/DVD combo here as well as flybridge stereo CD system.
For those not acquainted with the 59 Marquis the volume of the interior space and some features of the layout are usually only found on larger Yachts. The 59 Marquis looks and feels very much like a larger, more expensive Yacht.
What the Professionals have to say...
Boating Magazine said:
"A boat with European looks and American practicality. Innerspring mattresses for all the berths. An engine room you could dance in. Two showers big enough for real adults. Tall bulwarks with canted walkways make bow access easy and safe."
Yachting Magazine had this to say:
"Swoopy windows and swept-back lines give the 59 Marquis a 30-knot look even when she is at anchor. Touches such as the high bulwarks encircling the deck are not just about styling, but about safety. She has solid American practicality, too, as seen in her oversize bollards (used in place of cleats). These European details combined with reliable U.S. technology make the 59 Marquis a Ferretti from the wheat fields, a Ferrari with the engine of a Chevy.
transom platform is actually two: The first extends 3 feet, 4 inches,
and the second, movable platform stretches another 3 feet, 7 inches.
Electrically raised and lowered, the immersible outer platform is
designed to carry, launch and retrieve a tender or PWC, eliminating the
need for a crane. Also, the platform can be semi-submerged and used as a
"beach for swimmers and divers. The cockpit isn't particularly large,
but with a considerable flying bridge and an all-purpose transom
platform, its size is not a concern.
The saloon is entered through a beautifully curved stainless-steel-and-glass slider that foretells the European feel. Inside, the saloon stretches unbroken from the door to the pilothouse windshield. The wavelike-curve of its overhead conveys a sense of airiness."
Power and Motoryacht were suitable impressed and wrote:
"I was standing at Carver’s display at the Miami International Boat Show as a couple of Italians disembarked from the new 59 Marquis. Curious what they might have to say after touring what the builder was claiming to be a true American-European hybrid, I edged closer.
“It really looks Italian,” marveled one.
“It doesn’t look Italian,” corrected his paisano, “it is Italian.”
Well, not exactly. The Venice-based marine design firm of Nuvolari and Lenard certainly gave the 59 a continental look, but it was the men and women of Pulaski, Wisconsin, who built her. Still, after my turn aboard the 59 that night and a full-day sea trial on her in Fort Lauderdale a few weeks later, I felt this boat had more in common with an Azimut or Ferretti than with another Carver. That’s not to say she’s their peer. Her sapele and cherry joinery and lovely, three-panel, solid-cherry doors are a huge step up from other Carvers, but the company still has a way to go before it can match the flawless, deep lacquer that routinely comes out of Italy and England.
Yet the 59 is at her heart a different Carver. She’s even built differently, inspired by EU Class I standards, the most stringent classification. Her hull has a solid-glass bottom and a combination of foam and balsa cores in the hull sides. She uses what Carver calls U.S. Navy-style construction, featuring a deck that, when attached to the hull, creates a monolith that needs no structural support other than bulkheads. The separate superstructure is an aluminum grid onto which is attached the laminate. A metal flange on it mates to a steel-reinforced deck boss, where the two are married with urethane sealant and bolts. The deck itself is a combination of tubular aluminum, balsa core, and foam encapsulated in fiberglass. Windows are direct-bonded—no frames—and engine beds are engine-length U-shape steel rails bolted from the top down into tapped steel plate embedded in the stringers and also through-bolted horizontally. The shelf on which the steering quadrants attach is reinforced with carbon fiber, and bulkheads are triple-bonded to the hull and sealed at all penetrations.
Impressive Undoubtedly, but it’s what people see when they walk through the 59 that will impress. Everything from the Mariner Italian Faucetry plumbing fixtures to the brushed-aluminum Olivari door hardware is upscale with superb space utilization. When you walk down from the main level to the accommodations level, you do so via a comfortable 2’5”-wide curved stairway that leads to a large foyer with a granite sole that has LEDs embedded in it.
Head forward and you come to the VIP, with port and starboard full-length hanging closets, 6’6” headroom, port and starboard ports, and an optional flat-panel TV that flips down from the overhead. There are plenty of high-power halogen lights—they need a dimmer—and a large en suite head with enclosed shower to starboard.
The midship master is abaft the foyer and offers two larger hanging closets, each with elegantly curved doors, plus two ports and large built-in cabinets on each side. The en suite head, like its forward mate, has a large enclosed shower.
Both staterooms are so spacious, you wonder how Marquis did it on a 59-footer—until you see the third stateroom, midway between the two and to port. It has bunks and a shallow (five inches deep) closet but is so small designers had to design a bi-fold door so you can get in and out of it. This one is definitely more comfortable for kids.
Space is not lacking on the main deck. The optional lower station leaves room for a nice-size semicircular couch to starboard. Sightlines from the two pedestal seats are fine—the helm seat raises electrically to enhance your view—although a seven-inch-wide centerline mullion is a distraction. Should you not order the lower station, a larger semicircular settee occupies the area. An optional pneumatically operated port-side door provides ready access to the side deck is a worthwhile option for crewless cruisers.
The large U-shape galley is aft and to starboard on this level, and as with the heads, its counters and sole are granite. A two-burner ceramic cooktop, stainless steel KitchenAid convection/microwave oven, and below-counter Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer are standard. An optional Fisher and Paykel drawer-style dishwasher fits handily under a seat just forward of the galley. Two features that fell into my gee-I-didn’t-know-I-needed-that category: a Cuisinart coffee maker that slides out electrically and a kitchen faucet with a clock in it.
Down three steps, the saloon has seven-foot headroom, is surrounded by glass on three sides, and can be ordered with a Sony 34-inch flat-panel TV in the forward starboard corner and a choice of furniture. Our boat had couches on either side—one with a big stowage drawer, the other that converted to two recliners—plus a barrel chair.
exit the saloon for the cockpit via one of the prettiest and smoothest
curved stainless steel sliding doors I’ve seen. (It has a curved screen
door, too.) The cockpit is moderate in size—6’8” deep—and its entire
sole can be removed to reach the engine space. A 3’ W x 4’6” L hatch
provides easier access to the standard diesels via a large lazarette,
part of which can be ordered as crew quarters. Our boat had optional
warping winches in each aft corner atop molded fiberglass cabinets, but
no way to feed line into the cabinets except through the cabinet door.
The stainless steel work here and elsewhere is exemplary—as good as I’ve
seen—and it’s all done by Marquis.
Foredeck access from here is via 11/2-foot-wide side decks with waist-high bulwarks and ample grabrails, guaranteeing safe passage in all but the worst conditions. To make your way aft, step through the starboard transom gate down to an enormous swim platform—actually two platforms. There’s a fixed one 40 inches deep followed by a 43-inch-deep one that raises and lowers electrically—and it’s standard."
The galley is fully equipped with brushed stainless steel appliances and black granite floors. A built in microwave, refrigerator, convection oven, dishwasher and electric range complete this professional cooking space. A beautiful cherry dining table is conveniently situated next to the galley in the skylounge, which keeps everyone close by while preparing meals.
the pilothouse you descend a curved stair to a landing featuring a
granite insert in the floor with the Marquis logo and LED lighting. Here
you find a laundry locker with stacked washer and dryer units. Aft and
amidship is the full-beam master stateroom with king size bed, large
drawers along each side, and large curved door hanging lockers. There is
a full entertainment system for your enjoyment. The ensuite master head
is located forward to the starboard side of the stateroom and is
finished with white granite floors and counters featuring a full tub
Fully forward is the VIP stateroom with island queen bed and ample storage. There is private access to the guest/day head, and a full entertainment center with drop-down flat screen TV.
The third stateroom is to port, featuring double bunks. Across from this is the guest/day head with white granite counters and floor and large stall shower.

The roomy VIP guest room is located forward.
The guest is to the port with two bunks.
It's a pleasure to pilot the Marquis from her state-of-the-art bridge. The instrumentation panels and single-lever controls are conveniently within your reach. The first mate is serving cold drinks and grilling today's fresh catch as your guests relax on the spacious bridge. With a wet bar, refrigerator and grill you can entertain and cruise at the same time with spectacular views of your surroundings.
the cockpit the built in seating has been re-covered with custom
Sunbrella upholstery to accent the decking. The owner has also added a
custom table with beautiful inlays. This table is mounted on a large
sturdy stainless steel pedestal.
To either side of the cockpit are storage lockers with polished stainless steel tops supporting the large stern cleats and electric mooring winches.
In the forward starboard corner of the cockpit is the auxiliary helm station useful for docking. Here there are full engine controls, bow and stern thruster controls, and autopilot controls. There is also a built-in lock box for key storage.
The swim step is a fully hydraulic unit capable of lifting up to 800 lbs. The custom cradle for the dinghy can be mounted here. When removed only flush sockets are left; nothing to stub your toes on!
There are dual 50A/250V cablemasters for the shorepower at the transom, as well as fresh and salt water washdowns. You'll find a large pantograph door in the center of the transom allowing easy access to the large Lazarette and the engine room.
The recessed side decks are large and well protected, allowing easy access forward. Along each side the owner has added 4 (8 total) jam-cleats for quick and easy hanging of fenders wherever they are needed.
On the foredeck there is a large custom Sunbrella upholstered sun lounge, as well as in-deck fender storage and auxiliary shore power connections plus fresh and raw water wash downs under a discrete access panel. The anchor and windlass are located under a hatch for a clean look.
