Mini Superyachts - Numarine 26Xp
Numarine’s XP collection will be debuting at the Cannes Yachting Festival and it is already going strong. Following the first two models a further two are on the cards by the end of 2018.
With the XP collection this Turkish yard has gotten off to a great start. The larger of the two a 32 metre and the 26 metre are currently enjoying a notable success in terms of numbers with several sold and almost ready for delivery. The smaller of the two models namely the XP 26 is the more sought after of the two, also because she is just short, for a handful of centimetres, to not be classified as
a ship, (edn. Less than 24.00 m) with all of the advantages that go with it. Numarine launched two XP 26 models, the first to hit the water was back in April and the second one last July. A further two will follow suit by the year’s end. It is worth noting that the first two models are very different from a technical point of view even if at first glance the exterior design work by Can Yalman is misleading. The first 26 metre deploys a semi displacing hull which propels the yacht to a top speed of 28 knots, instead the second one sports a displacing hull with a rostrum like bulb in the bow which when delivering 13.5 knots is capable of cruising nonstop for 3,000 nautical miles. Umberto Tagliavini a consolidated partner of this Turkish yard drew up both hulls. “Hull number two of the XP 26 was designed expressly for its owner” tells Omer Malaz Numarine’s founder and CEO. “This new yacht is endowed with our special silent
package” which translates into a lithium set of batteries which can run all on board systems including A/C without deploying a gen. set for up to 12 hours thereby offering total silence to better appreciate quiet bays and to sleep while gently lulled by wavelets”. This model’s success can be attributed to a mix of factors, not least a sophisticated design which upgrades the styling in the explorer yacht segment and in the details of the rest of Numarine’s fleet. The interiors are always initialled by Can Yalman and continue to boast ample volumes while the finishes, the materials and many other choices are left up to the client. Number two’s layout comprises four large guest cabins, the owner’s is amid ships and comprises a private study, a lounge corner and a large bathroom. The common areas dedicated to socialising are situated along the main deck where a saloon oozes with natural light thanks to floor to ceiling window like ports which offer great views of the surroundings and extend into the dining area. Outside on the same deck we find a private area forward in the bow area and a second dining spot in the cockpit contoured with sun pads and cushions. The fly deck is all of 16 metres long with a surface area of 55 square metres. For further information www.numarine.com
