Marquis 500 SB
The 500 Sport Bridge is a recent creation from the American Marquis yacht yard. This is a very special vessel. Every last detail has been scrutinized to reflect Marquis Yacht’s outstanding reputation for obsessive attention to design detail and unmatched yacht construction quality
The 500 SB can be operated from either the flybridge or the fully equipped salon helm station. Power is supplied by three Volvo Penta diesel engines coupled to IPS rotating pod drives – the most innovative and efficient engine/drive system available. The result is superb slow speed torque; thrilling top-end speed and exceptional joy stick controlled slow speed maneuverability. And, while powerful – this engine and drive combination is quieter and more efficient than traditional shaft driven propulsion systems.
The features incorporated into this yacht reflect forward thinking from the Marquis Yachts design team. The low profile sport bridge is for people who love fresh sea air and warm sunshine. There is no shortage of lounge space. Choose the privacy of the triple-wide foredeck lounge or the contoured bridge lounge or the spacious sun pad aft of the bridge.
With the opening of the aft bulkhead doors, galley, salon, cockpit and swim platform are integrated into a single level social area. For additional cockpit space the transom is moved aft with a simple touch of a button. Awe inspiring interior appointments include yacht finish woodwork custom crafted from a number of exotic hardwoods.
The prestige associated with the Marquis brand has been earned over time and is undisputed by the world’s most knowledgeable yachtsmen. The new Marquis 500 Sport Bridge reflects the knowledge of a highly refined owner that recognizes world class style and fine yacht quality.

Marquis embodies perfection in the art of yacht building.
Marquis’ Corporate headquarters and yacht yard are located in the inland seas region of the United States where generations of skilled craftsmen have been building the world’s finest yachts and ships since the early 1800′s. This heritage runs through the veins of all who work at Marquis, bringing an experience and passion to our craft unmet anywhere else in the world.
Each Marquis is hand built by a team of vastly experienced yacht builders and technicians who are as passionate about building the finest yachts… as you are in owning one.
The prestige of the Marquis brand has been earned by building substantial vessels regarded by experienced yachtsmen throughout the world as superior in styling, design and construction. A Marquis reflects not only your sense of style but also your ability to own the best built yacht of its kind.
Marquis quality is strikingly different.
It is typical for other yacht builders to outsource the design and installation of electrical and plumbing systems as well as cabinetry construction, upholstery fabrication and other critical components. In doing this they are, in essence, assemblers of other company’s products and are limited by their supplier’s capabilities, time frames and quality standards.
Marquis is unique and superior because we build nearly every subcomponent and critical system ourselves and are immersed in every minute detail in the creation of each vessel.
The results are yachts with the ultimate in distinctive style, unmatched fit and finish and proven operational reliability.
This quality and uncommon attention to detail says a lot about the Marquis brand and the person who owns one.
