Numarine USA sold the 32.5-metre explorer yacht to an experienced American Owner in August 2017. The official world debut is scheduled at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
The 32XP hull no. 2 has a blue-coloured hull and a different layout comparing to the first hull of the series, M/Y Marla (delivered in summer 2017). In order to satisfy the Owner’s request, the new yacht has five cabins instead of six. The master suite is placed forward on the main deck, while there is an extra saloon with a bar on the upper deck aft.
The 32XP is a perfect example of a compact explorer yacht. While being just under the limit of 300 GT category. She offers incredible volumes of internal living spaces on board, with her steel hull and GRP superstructure allowed to create unique layouts internally and customized external spaces. Simplicity of use, engaging styling and the seamless integration of systems are key principles of the yacht.
As Omer Malaz puts it, hi-tech companies and devices that run the world now inspired him to create this beautiful model. The yacht is easy to manage thanks to a user-friendly interface developed by Energy Solutions, and the captain runs her without an engineer.
The second 32XP accommodates up to 10 guests and is ready for long cruises thanks to her proven hull and ample of storage facilities.
View from outside
The 32XP, as well as other models in the series, looks very different comparing to the shipyard’s other performance models. The styling is by Can Yalman, the renowned design partner of Numarine responsible for all of the shipyard’s distinctive model lines. Her silhouette is deliberately rugged, powerful and hefty with extensive angular windows.
The vertical bow is another contemporary feature added to the yacht and it has a purpose to cut through the water with ease. The hull’s shape, which is designed by Numarine’s long-standing collaborator, naval architect Umberto Tagliavini, is beneficial to the internal volumes.
Modern, spacious layout
Can Yalman has also penned the interior. Like all Numarines, the interior of the 32XP is fully customized to reflect the owner’s preferences in terms of layout, design, fabrics and materials.
There are various marbles and woods, leather, brass, etc. Leading companies, such as Missoni Home, B&B Italia and Tom Dixon, provided comfortable furniture, objects and textiles.
The main deck of the 32XP hull no.2 offers a generous cockpit that also provides for a comfortable stern sunpad area right behind the couch seating, for 64 square meters of living space (including side passages). An expansive salon of 48 square meters leads to a lobby area with a day head and a separate gym on the starboard side, and then to a full-beam forward 30-sq.m. master cabin equipped with an ensuite with a shower and a bath tube.
Center-ship on the portside, a fully functional kitchen with four full-height refrigerators links to the salon via a pantry area and to the crew quarters below, connected to the external portside passage with a crew-dedicated entrance, all to allow the highest standard of service on board and maximum guest privacy. Below deck, the layout offers two VIP cabins and a pair of double cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, and over 85 square meters of living space.
Below deck forward, the 5-person crew quarters provide ideal spaces for the captain with his private cabin + ensuite, and four crewmembers in two doubles with ensuite. A crew kitchen with dinette area and a laundry room complete the crew area.
Upper deck and sundeck
According to the Owner’s taste, the upper deck features another saloon with enormous windows and a bar instead of an additional large cabin like the one the first 32XP has. It opens up via sliding doors to the incredibly large open deck. In navigation, it can fit a spectacular 9-meter RIB tender and two PWCs with the help of the 2.5 Tons crane.
Forward of the wheelhouse, following the Numarine’s tradition, there is a large couch area with bimini and cocktail table and two extensive sunpad areas. Total external space on the upper deck is fantastic 129 square meters. The flybridge offers 60 square meters of entertainment space customized to include in the first unit 3 couches, a 12 persons dining table, two large sunpad areas a fully-fitted bar, and three navigation seats around a secondary helm station.
Silence is perfection
Numarine 32XP has surpassed even DNV Class 1 Comfort Class in terms of the elimination and reduction of all noise and vibration sources and achieved comfort levels of a high quality 50-meter megayacht in a 32 meters superyacht.
The 32XP can easily make night passages during long voyages that is why the highest level of comfort while underway was so important to achieve. Numarine’s longstanding partner Silent Line, run by Sjaak van Cappellen, developed and installed the solutions to provide the right ambiance. In order to do that, they have disconnected cabins from the yacht’s structure, which is unique for a 32.5-metre yacht. Usually, says van Cappellen, this advanced technology is applied on much bigger megayachts over 80 metres in length. Therefore, the owner can sleep well and is unaware when the 32XP is cruising.
Even with the engines running, the noise level at the Owner’s suite is under 37 decibels; it is quiet like a library. While the yacht is at anchor, this number is down to 30 decibels, which is a spectacular accomplishment.
The new series of explorer superyachts, established by Numarine, the XP Series, is the quintessence of the modern boatbuilding. It is minimalistic, yet sophisticated. Compact, yet spacious. Glamorous, yet reliable and seaworthy. It has been conceived by the shipyard’s owner and CEO Omer Malaz, who a few years ago anticipated a major trend on the market: superyachts have to be superyachts with all required amenities and features but they have to be very efficient both in terms of production and the following use.
Numarine 32XP has a very efficient displacement hull that gives her a top speed of 14 knots, a cruise speed of 12 knots, and an inspiring 4,000 nm range at 9 knots.
More 32XPs coming
The unit #3 of the 32XP has been sold in September 2017 in a direct deal. It will be launched this year (Autumn 2018).
