Marquis Yachts Adds Outboards to the M42 Series

Marquis M42

Oct 22, 2020

Almost a year ago to the day, Marquis Yachts re-launched the Marquis brand and introduced the world to the M42. Now they have added the triple outboard powered M42 for the buyers that want to seize the day. The outboard powered M42, in fact, is actually the standard power configuration for this model, and the inboards introduced a year ago are an option.

To leverage the tooling already used in building the inboard M42, Donald Blount & Associates

worked with Marquis Yachts engineers to create a tool that extended the running surface and incorporated the platform to bracket the triple Mercury outboards making this boat not only look like it moving at rest, but really jumps when you put the throttle down. ”The M42 OB is a blast to drive. It turns on a dime, a rocket ship at wide open throttle, and the ride is extremely comfortable and stable,” said Josh Delforge, Vice President of Design & Engineering at Marquis Yachts.

The M42 OB has all of the same features and accommodations of its paternal twin – large aft sunbed, expansive cockpit with U-shaped seating, entertainment wet bar and large helm that easily accommodates up to two 16” Raymarine displays. Down below features an easy use galley, forward seating that converts to a berth and the coup de gras a large head featuring a stand-up shower stall.

Marquis M42With the outboard configuration of the M42, the owner gains a large aft storage area in lieu of where the Cummins inboard power would be located. This storage area, perfect for folding bikes, inflatable paddle boards, or playful water toys is accessed via an electrical actuated hatch. 

“We are excited to add the Outboard version to the M42. The boat looks absolutely stunning, performs like a thoroughbred with the standard Merc 400 Verados and has all the requirements needed for an incredible, complete day on the water and when desired, overnight,” stated Marquis Yachts President & CEO, Rob Parmentier.

A first for Marquis, the first M42 OB will make its official debut in Osaka, Japan

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
