The new explorer will have a light displacement, hybrid propulsion, stabilizer fins combined with a large gyro, capacity to carry sizable tenders and multiple toys. The life inside will be open on the exterior with a lot of glass and large outside areas.

Building a yacht is not simply asking for a building slot, but it requires a solid base for a multi-year collaboration on all levels within a shipyard organization. The special requirements and needs of a client to accommodate differ for every project. It became clear for me that JFA Yachts could offer the dedicated approach and versatility that was required to build this unique vessel. The mixture of JFA’s DNA on aluminium, composite, lightweight materials, together with the in-house production departments and the team’s passion for the sea made JFA the right fit.” He works with JFA Yachts project manager, Michel Siou.
