500 Sport Bridge
Length w/ Pulpit:
Keeping with Marquis tradition, the 500 Sport Bridge is the creation of yacht design studio Nuvolari-Lenard of Venice, Italy. Her bold lines, megayacht-style interior and triple-IPS power system offer something different from most motoryachts her size. Built on a semi-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom and moderate beam, perhaps the most innovative feature of the 500 SB is what Marquis calls a sliding transom that glides aft with a push of a button to create additional cockpit space. The well-appointed interior features dark Zebrano wood, black granite counters, and cherry flooring throughout. Below, the three stateroom, two head layout includes a forward master suite with ensuite head, VIP queen to port, and twin single berths in the second guest cabin. Note that the galley, salon, cockpit and swim platform are all on the same level, a feature quickly appreciated when the aft salon doors are opened to unite the areas. An optional hydraulic swim platform makes lowering the tender in and out of the water an easy task. Triple Volvo 435hp IPS pod drives (with joystick controls) cruise the Marquis 500 at over 30 knots.
