New Model: Explorer Yacht 62

Explorer Yacht is a new Italian brand founded by ex-Sessa boss Riccardo Radice and German company Nurnberg Leasing.  The first Explorer model the 62 is designed by CentrostileDesign and Riccardo Radice, for what is an innovative and technically different explorer yacht which launched in 2022.  A new brand which shows a different purpose and innovative product is always exciting news and the Explorer with its debut 62 model manages to do this, especially in its main deck, which is one of the best interpretations of creating an inside-outside area, which thanks to sliding doors which fully open brings outside to the main deck.  The Explorer 62 is also an explorer yacht with substance, with all main systems onboard being double such as water-pumps, bilge-pumps, and double 50kg anchor with ship type gear set up.  Probably at eighteen meters one of the smallest yachts with such a system made or currently available in the market.  Another important technical aspect is the collision designed bulb which is completely water tight and insulated and is designed to minimize damage if one collides to semi-sunk solid objects during navigation.  The Explorer 62 offers an interior with four cabins, sleeping seven, with an owners stateroom at midships.  A crew berth cabin utility room is located aft to port side.  The Explorer 62 is powered by twin Volvo 600hp with IPS pod drives which give a top speed up to 24 knots and cruise of sixteen, with the possibility to cruise slower and longer and a range of about 700 nautical miles.
