The Kit Car­lier De­sign stu­dio has launched an all-new, ex­clu­sive yacht de­sign in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Stim­son Yacht De­sign and Naval Ar­chi­tec­ture.

The Ex­pe­di­tion 24m is de­signed for long-range voy­ages and fea­tures a highly ef­fi­cient hull to com­bat un­pre­dictable off­shore sea states, op­ti­mised for 15 knots. The hull form min­imises re­sis­tance, re­sult­ing in a ves­sel that burns as lit­tle fuel as pos­si­ble, for a 6,000nm range at 8 knots.

The Ex­pe­di­tion 24m has been de­signed to pair the lat­est tech­nol­ogy with lux­u­ri­ous crea­ture com­forts, such as a full-beam mas­ter cabin and en suite bath­room, crew quar­ters and a ten­der garage, fea­tures usu­ally re­served for larger ves­sels.

The Ex­pe­di­tion 24m of­fers a range of eco op­tions, in­clud­ing a com­mer­cial-spec­i­fied hy­brid propul­sion sys­tem, waste treat­ment sys­tems and en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly in­te­rior ma­te­ri­als.

For added ver­sa­til­ity, the ves­sel can be built in ei­ther alu­minium al­loy or com­pos­ite. Pre­ferred builders in New Zealand are Circa Ma­rine (al­loy) and Mcmullen and Wing (com­pos­ite). www.kit­car­lierde­sign.com www.stim­sony­achts.com
