The new Numarine 26XP is a displacement version with bulbous bow
Turkish yard Numarine has delivered the second hull in the 26XP range.
The new compact 26m explorer yacht is equipped with a full-displacement efficient hull and bulbous bow for maximized stability and long range.
“The Hull #2 of the 26XP is specially designed for its owner”, comments Omer Malaz, Founder and Chairman of Numarine. “The new yacht has our “silent package” with a lithium-Ion battery system allowing all necessary onboard systems including air-conditioning to run without generators for up to 12 hours, silence onboard to enjoy the most beautiful island bays or to sleep peacefully while being rocked by the sea.”
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.
One of the key features of the 26XP is a special flybridge. It covers about two thirds of the hull’s length, so it is around 16m long and 55 square meters of floor space.
The displacement 26XP unit no.2’s maximum speed will be 13.5 knots, and a cruising speed is 9 knots. The efficient hull offers a range of 3,000 nautical miles at 8 knots.
The next two 26XPs units are going to be launched by the end of 2018. Like the just-delivered second one, they will have displacement hulls.
