The Marex 320 ACC is all about accommodation, but so what? Boatbuilders have been making voluminous cabin-biased cruisers for donkeys. What sets the Marex apart from the crowd is the way it has done it.

Typically the route to extra space is to build high and wide, sacrifice the side decks, shrink the cockpit, and you end up with a boat that’s more holiday home than seagoing vessel.

The Marex however, still looks like a proper boat, with a low cabin profile, flared bows, sleek sheerline and wide side decks, this is no floating apartment.

Instead of just building up and out, this Norwegian yard’s route to maximizing accommodation is very simple: just use the whole length of the boat.

Verdict

This boat will allow you to ejoy the open air with the canopies stowed or spending time aboard in port with the family, the world of compromise never crops up.
