Turkish shipyard Numarine has recently launched its very first 32-m (105-ft) explorer yacht. The 32XP features an efficient displacement steel hull, and was specifically built to drastically reduce noise and vibration. It is powered by two 715-hp Caterpillar engines, giving it the ability cruise at 9 knots for up to 4,000 nautical miles (5,556 km, 3,452 mi) without refueling, and reach a maximum speed of 14 knots.
"In designing the 32XP, Numarine paid considerable attention, with the assistance of its longstanding partner Silent Line, to the elimination and reduction of all noise and vibration sources," Numarine tells New Atlas. "She has efficient hull, extensive space on board, amazing innovative exterior lines and she has a displacement of just under 300GT, the maximum limit for its category."
The yacht posses a uniquely modern and luxury interior design for a ship of its size, with loads of living and storage space ideal for long journeys. The 32-m-long vessel was purpose-built to create an innovative luxury explorer yacht that would meet the owner's desire to travel frequently and for long intervals to varied and remote destinations.
The luxury vessel is sure to impress with its 330 sq m (3,552 sq ft) of living space. The 32XP features a comfortable cockpit with 64-sq m (689-sq ft) entertaining area, outdoor sunbed and sofa lounge. There is a 48-sq m (516-sq ft) dining area, large lobby, a separate gym located starboard side and a forward master cabin complete with separate his and hers bathrooms with a large central shower. Complete with a large designer kitchen, lower deck crew quarters, a further four guests cabins all with private bathrooms and ample living space, the yacht can accommodate 12 passengers and five crew.
The upper deck boasts a spectacular owner's cabin, featuring a 40-sq m (430-sq ft) lounge area, walk-in wardrobes and a designer bathroom. The large upper deck also features an outdoor living area, 9-m (29.5-ft) RIB tender and two jet-skis. Furthermore, the explorer yacht features a standout flybridge with a 60-sq m (646-sq ft) outdoor entertaining zone, a full bar, sundeck, dining area and lounge seating.
"The all-new Numarine 32XP offers incredible volumes of internal living spaces onboard, with her steel hull construction and GRP (glass-reinforced panel) superstructure allowing the yard and her owner to create unique layouts internally and customized external spaces, both of which have been penned by Can Yalman, the renowned design partner of Numarine responsible for all of the shipyard's distinctive model lines," say the company.
