World premiere for the 26XP

Numarine, the European motor-yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul, has confirmed that the 26XP and 32XP explorer superyachts will be exhibited together for the very first time in a boat show.

The 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival (September 11-16) will be the world premiere for the 26XP in its full displacement version, while the 32XP is set to make its European debut.


The yachts have many similarities as they represent Numarine’s new XP Series of expedition vessels. Both 26XP and 32XP are designed inside and outside by the shipyard’s long-term collaborator Can Yalman. Naval architecture is by Umberto Tagliavini, another partner of the shipyard. Both models have modern looks, even futuristic, due to angular windows and a vertical bow. They have an efficient hull, designed for ocean cruising.


In its displacement version, the 26XP has a maximum speed of 13.5 knots, and a cruising speed is 9 knots. In semi-planning version, the yacht carries more powerful engines and can reach up to 28 knots.


The 32.5m superyacht Marla, which is going to attend the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018, is the first unit of the new 32XP Series that was delivered to her Owner last summer.


Marla has a displacement hull and a top speed of 14 knots, a cruise speed of 12 knots, and can reach a 4,000 nm range at 9 knots.
