Numarine has just launched its new 32XP Explorer Yacht with a go-anywhere steel hull. It boasts ample space for owners and guests that extends beyond the standard for other yachts in its 105-foot class. The 32XP yacht offers 3,550 square feet of living/social space, with 515 square feet designated for the saloon alone. The owner’s stateroom comprises 430 square feet, and the four guest staterooms total nearly 1,000. Floor-to-ceiling windows and functional distribution of layout create an abundance of light and space. The 32XP is perfect for crossing long distances with its 3,000-mile range in a spacious, homey environment.
The hull was designed by Umberto Tagliavini with efficiency in mind, and is capable of a top speed of 14 knots, via twin 2,100 hp Caterpillar engines. It cruises at 12 knots. The superstructure is unusually contemporary for an explorer yacht. It boasts serrated curves in the superstructure areas over the windows and a jaunty hardtop on the top deck. Other striking features include the ship’s bridge, aft deck for storage. The open bow area gives it a more traditional explorer design.
The flybridge is a typical party platform, with sofas, a dining table for 12, and a full wet bar. The owner’s cabin sits on the deck below and includes a walk-in closet, bathroom, and—a superior feature—exclusive access to the aft deck. There is a second master suite on the main deck, with a large bedroom and separate his-and-her bathrooms and a shared rain-forest shower. A professional galley (with four full-size fridges, freezers, and cooking equipment for long voyages) connects via a pantry to the open-plan saloon. In addition, there are two VIP and two double cabins along with crew quarters for five via a separate entrance.
In partnership with Silent Line, Numarine was able to reduce noise and vibration on the 32XP. This allowed the Turkish shipyard to surpass RINA’s “Comfort Class” standards in the 50-meter (165-foot) class.
