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
