Numarine, the European high-performance motor-yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul, offering a range of yachts from 62′ – 105′, is excited to announce the launch and delivery of the second unit of the 26XP Series. This compact 26-meter expedition vessel is equipped with a full-displacement efficient hull and bulbous bow for maximized stability and long range.
“The Hull #2 of the 26XP is specially designed for its owner”, comments Omer Malaz, Founder and Chairman of Numarine. “The new yacht has our “silent package” with a lithium-Ion battery system allowing all necessary onboard systems including air-conditioning to run without generators for up to 12 hours, silence onboard to enjoy the most beautiful island bays or to sleep peacefully while being rocked by the
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, the first of which was launched last summer. Designed to offer the same capabilities as her longer sisters, the 26XP’s smaller draft allows her to berth in shallow harbours. The yacht has a wellproven
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 below decks. 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. 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 a special flybridge. It covers about two-thirds of the hull’s length, so it is around 16 meters long and 55 square meters of floor space. 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 5,5-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 dB at cruising speed and 30 dB at the anchor.
Ready for voyages
The displacement 26XP unit no.2’s maximum speed will be 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.
Next up? More XPs
The next two 26XPs units are going to be launched by the end of 2018. Like the just-delivered second one, they will have displacement hulls. The premiere 26XP had a semi-planing hull, a pair of powerful engines and a max speed of 28 knots. This design concept flexibility is another big advantage for the
