Numarine, the European high-performance motor-yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul,continues to expand its fleet of explorer yachts. The latest additions are two more units of the 26XP modelthat have been delivered to clients from Turkey.
“The new yachts that we have recently delivered are the 9thand 10thunits of the 26XP Series,” comments Omer Malaz, Founder and Chairman of Numarine. “It’s a very solid accomplishment for this extremely competitive market niche and another confirmation of how attractive this model and the whole XP platform are for modern owners who are looking for adventures.”
The new units of the 26XPhave a standard layout with four large guest cabins below. One of them is a displacement version with a bulbous bow, a pair of 800 Hp MAN engines and the “Silent package”. The yacht’s interior decoration is characterized by darker interior choices, which is new for the series, including dark wood, stones, and veneers. Another unit has a planning hull. In combination with a couple of 1200 Hp MAN engines, this 26XP reaches 20 knots, confirming the platform’s unique flexibility.
Numarine has also recently launched its new application, which is available in App Store. Users can check all the ranges, photos, video, and other helpful materials via their smartphones.
Modern lines and trustable naval architecture
Numarine’s long-term collaborator Can Yalman designed the 26XP’s exterior and interior. Naval architecture is by Umberto Tagliavini, another perennial partner of the shipyard. She is very modern, even futuristic, due to angular windows and a vertical bow, and carries the DNA of a larger model, the 32XP. Designed to offer the same capabilities of her longer sisters, the 26XP’s smaller draft allows her to berth in shallow harbors. The yacht has a well-proven and efficient hull, especially designed for ocean cruising.
Sophisticated interiors, compact body
The 26XP’s sophisticated interior is spacious and refined. There are four large guest cabins belowdecks. The master suite is situated amidships. It is large enough to have a dedicated study to starboard, a lounge to portside and a vast bathroom in addition to the king-sized bed and plenty of storage space for long cruises. There are also two VIPs and one more twin cabin.
The shipyard uses a lot of glass to ensure that interior is filled with natural light. In addition, a section of the large saloon windows slides open to create a floating balcony over the sea.
Social areas on board are ample. The 2.5-deck yacht has an extensive main saloon with full height windows that saturate the interior with natural light. The saloon’s layout is simple and classical. It has a cozy lounge with a C-shaped couch and a sofa in the aft and an internal dining area adjacent to the galley. Outside spaces of the main deck help guests to stay connected with the sea. In the bow, three settees form a very private space with amazing view.
In the aft, connected with the saloon via large glass doors, there is an open dining area and an oversized comfortable sunbed. From here, two stairs lead to a generous beach platform right.
One of the key unbeatable features of the 26XP is the special 55 sq. m flybridge. The second console unit and another dining area in the front are partially enclosed by the radar mast, while the rear sun lounge is a fully open space, and nothing obliterates spectacular views from this terrace few meters above the sea level.
The flybridge is big enough to provide storage space for a 3.5-meter tender. The spacious guest areas, modern, stylish and sophisticated interior, maximum build quality and efficient propulsion and naval architecture make Numarine 26XP one of the most desirable sub-30 meters yachts on the market. She is always ready to take the owner to places he has never been before.
All about comfort
To ensure the maximum level of comfort on board the 26XP, Numarine took great care in eliminating or reducing all sources of noise and vibration. The on-board systems that resolve these issues are from the shipyard’s longstanding partner Silent Line, noise and vibration experts for luxury yachts, commercial vessels, and industrial and architectural projects. The noise level in the Owner’s cabin is only 55.1 dB at cruising speed, 33.8 dB at the anchor with generator and air conditioning running.
Ready for voyages
The displacement version of the 26XP has a maximum speed of 13.5 knots, and a cruising speed is 9 knots. The efficient hull offers greater fuel autonomy up to 3,000 nm at 8 knots. The model is also available with a planning hull.
