New Model: Numarine 26 XP

Numarine, the European high performance motor yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey offering a range of yachts from 62 to 105 feet, is delighted to announce that the very first hull of the 26 XP Explorer Series has been launched. The yacht’s premiere is planned for the Turkish Eurasia Boat Show held in the second part of February 2018 in Tuzla near Istanbul. This compact 26-meter expedition vessel was sold in May 2016 to a returning customer from Turkey.  This the fourth Numarine for this loyal client, before which he owned the 78 Flybdige yachts. Numarine’s long-term collaborator Can Yalman designed the 26 XP’s exterior and interior. Naval architecture is by Umberto Tagliavini. 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 of her longer sisters, the 26 XP’s smaller draft allows her to berth in shallower harbors. The yacht has well proven and efficient hull, specially designed for ocean cruising.  The first 26 XP unit was built in the very efficient, semi-displacement version. The superyacht will achieve a maximum speed of 22 knots, with a cruising speed of 18 knots. Her sophisticated interior is spacious and refined. There are four large guest cabins below decks, including the master suite amidships and two VIP cabins. Social areas are vast, with an extensive main saloon, beach platform and a special flybridge with its own lounge, dining table and even storage space for a 5-meter tender.  To ensure the maximum level of comfort on board the 26 XP, Numarine took great care in eliminating or reducing all sources of noise and vibration. The onboard 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 26 XP is also unique due to her flexible design concept. While the first unit was built with the semi-displacement option, there is also the possibility to choose the displacement version: here, the yacht’s maximum speed is 11.5 knots, with a cruising speed of 9 knots and greater fuel autonomy, up to 3500 nm at 8 knots.  The 26 XP is looking a success for Numarine with four units sold, three of which will be of the displacement long range version.
