Numarine, the European high performance motor-yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul, offering a range of yachts from 62' - 105', is delighted to announce that the very first hull of the 26XP Series has been launched. The yacht’s premiere is planned for the Boat Show Eurasia from February 17-25, 2018 in Viaport Marina, Tuzla (near Istanbul), Turkey. This compact 26-meter expedition vessel was sold in May 2016 to a returning customer from Turkey.
M/Y Marla, the first unit of Numarine’s 32XP Series, will also be on display at the show. This is going to be the yacht’s official debut in Turkey.
“I’m happy to confirm that we have successfully completed the first 26XP yacht”, said Sales and Marketing Director of Numarine Orhun Senturk. “That’s the fourth Numarine yacht for our loyal client. Before he owned one of our popular 78’ Fly yachts. I congratulate our whole team with the tremendous job they did, creating such a beauty with such incredible living space”.
Numarine’s long-term collaborator Can Yalman designed the 26XP’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 26XP’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 26XP 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 26XP, 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 26XP 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 3,500 nm at 8 knots.
“Three of four units that have already been sold to clients are full displacement”, confirmed Orhun Senturk. “While the first has just hit the water, the other three, for clients from Europe, Russia and the Middle East, will soon follow and are to be launched by the end of 2018”.
Further details about the first hull of the 26XP Series will be released later.
