Dutch shipbuilder, Hartman Marine Group have opened a new yachts division under the name Hartman Yachts.

The new division will build motor yachts ranging from 24 to 42m at the Urk shipyard.

The Livingstone range uses classic 1930s looks for a modern explorer yacht. The first model is Livingstone 24, named in hommage to 19th-century explorer David Livingstone. The Hartman yacht retains a classic, ocean-liner look, but has all the comforts and technology of a modern motor yacht.

The yacht is built from a steel hull with aluminum infrastructure and was designed to look like a classic gentleman's yacht from the 1930s. It features all the latest communications and entertainment equipment, water toys, a large tender and even Naiad stabilizers for comfort.

The vessel can accommodate nine passengers in four staterooms. The aft deck offers space for a dinner table, a grill and wet bar and plenty of space for relaxing in the sun.

Livingstone 24 is powered by a single 345 hp MAN diesel engine which provides a range of 3,000 nautical miles while cruising at 11 knots. The standard version of the yacht is equipped with two 345 hp MAN engines.
