Luxury yacht Numarine 32XP Explorer making a debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2017
Numarine gears up to showcase its latest explorer yacht at the upcoming yacht shows in Cannes and Monaco
Numarine, an internationally renowned shipyard and most extensive boatyards on the southern shores of Istanbul, has been steadily selling stylish motor yachts from 55 feet to 130 feet for the past decade and is about to debut its latest Numarine 32XP Explorer at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show.
Represented in Asia by Eric Noyel of AsiaMarine, the vessel is 32.5 metres which makes her LOA quite close to the 33-metre Numarine 105XL Dolce Vita reviewed in Yacht Style issue 37. But that is where the similarities end. The new explorer line has a steel hull and GRP superstructure. Currently, in fit-out stages, she is expected to be delivered in late June or July.
The 32XP Explorer is a three-deck displacement vessel with an 8-metre beam, which allows extraordinary interior volume at just under 300 GT. The first one has been ordered by an experienced Numarine owner searching for a versatile and voluminous yacht custom created to cater to long cruises with his growing family. The design is by Numarine’s renowned Can Yalman, who styles all the yard’s boats, with naval architecture by Umberto Tagliavini.
Powered by twin Cats, the efficient hull is expected to give the vessel a top speed of 14 knots, cruising at 12 knots, and a range of 3,000nm at an economical 9 knots.
