Project: Estensi 640 Maine

Estensi who had quite a success in Italy with its US inspired line of produced boats presents the 640 Maine project, third model of this line and its largest ever built yacht. The Maine is Estensi line of Explorer Yachts with a Vee shape deep fore foot and flat aft hull which makes good for medium speeds of around 20 knots but also slower economic with a longer range at around 10 knots. As expected due to its larger size the 640 Maine shall boasts better the live aboard features of this range, and offer more spaces. Its lower deck presents an impressive four cabin plan, plus two crew aft with all the cabins looking rather large on plan, and the owner stateroom being a full beam mid ship affair. Worth to note is that all of the guest berths have no bunk berths too. The main deck being the living area is a split level saloon based on Italian style with a separate galley located in the middle, welcoming saloon aft, and dining area by the helm to fore. Reaching to the flybridge is from an internal and external stair case. The fly is reserved as an area of relaxing with an area aft usable for free moving deckchairs, C-shaped dinette, and helm. Standard power is to be from twin 600hp engines.
