Fol­low­ing the launch of the 32XP last sum­mer the new 26XP will ap­pear along­side its big­ger sib­ling at the Cannes Boat Show. The XP range is a sharp change in di­rec­tion for the Turk­ish yard, adding a line of strik­ing longdis­tance cruis­ers to the swoop­ing sportscruis­ers and fly­bridges it is known for.

The 26XP is avail­able with ei­ther a dis­place­ment or semi-dis­place­ment hull, the lat­ter ca­pa­ble of 23 knots with a pair of 1,200hp MAN engines. The dis­place­ment ver­sion only has a top speed of 11.5 knots with twin MAN 560hp engines but at its op­ti­mum 8-knot cruis­ing speed the range rock­ets to 3,500nm.

The boat clev­erly dips un­der the 24m wa­ter­line length thresh­old, though its length over­all is just shy of 85ft (25.9m). This leads to im­pres­sively roomy deck spa­ces, es­pe­cially the fly­bridge, which is a stag­ger­ing 52ft 5in (16m) long and oc­cu­pies nearly 100 square me­tres. Here, two gen­er­ous seat­ing ar­eas are flanked by wet­bars and with enough open space aft for some free­stand­ing sun loungers or ten­der stor­age and a crane. The saloon splits it­self be­tween loung­ing space and a din­ing ta­ble with a com­pre­hen­sive gal­ley to port that can be eas­ily ac­cessed by the crew – that said there is only one way to get to the fly­bridge and that is via the sin­gle stair­case in the cock­pit. There are four cab­ins on the lower deck, a full-beam master amid­ships and three guest en­suites for­ward.
