This 28.5 metre all-aluminium design was developed in collaboration with Guido de Groot Design, Diana Yacht Design and Ginton Naval Architects. The yacht hit a maximum speed of 21 knots on the trials in November. The yacht is now approaching delivery to its owners this upcoming Spring.
It will have a sundeck that is entirely dedicated to leisure, with no flybridge helm station to get in the way of al fresco entertainment. Guests will be able to relax around a large dining table to port or on the compact L-shaped settee.
The main deck aft will be fitted with a removable hardtop awning and a whirlpool tub flanked by sunpads. The area has an option to be converted to store a Jet Ski and many more water toys, which will be launched via a davit crane with a maximum lifting capacity of 800kg.
This superyacht can accomodate up to ten guests split between five staterooms, including a main deck owner’s suite, two VIP doubles and two twin cabins, while the aft crew quarters is suitable for a staff of up to four people.
Explorer will feature 1,650hp MAN V12 diesel engines for a top speed of 20 knots and comfortable cruising at 17 knots. The total fuel capacity of 22,000 litres should ensure a globetrotting cruising range.
