A New Numarine’s 26XP With Solar Panels and Super Silent Package Has Been Delivered
Numarine has delivered a new Explorer yacht to a customer in Turkey. This is the 12th unit in the 26XP series. The new 26XP yacht has a standard layout with four large guest cabins underneath. This ship is a displacement version with a bulbous bow that is powered by two 560 hp MAN engines. There are also some new features added at the owner’s request. The Explorer has an expanded carbon hardtop that covers the flybridge and 44.5 square meters of solar panels with a total output of 7530 watts peak. The solar panels collect additional electricity from this sustainable resource. There is only one large generator with additional lithium batteries.
“The new launch confirmed our leading position in the Explorer market,” said Omer Malaz. “In 2020, according to Boat International and Superyacht Times, 15 exploration projects with full displacement and a length of more than 24 meters were completed, started and delivered to the owners. Five of these 15 deliveries were made by Numarine, which makes us the market leader among European builders. ”
The 26XP is modern with square windows and a vertical arch and carries the DNA of a larger model, the 32XP. Numarine’s longtime employee Can Yalman designed the exterior and interior of the 26XP. The naval architecture comes from Umberto Tagliavini. The 26XP’s smaller design offers the same capabilities as its longer sisters and allows her to dock in shallow harbors. The yacht has a proven and efficient hull specially developed for ocean cruises.
The refined interior of the 26XP is spacious and sophisticated. There are four large guest cabins below deck. The master suite is large enough to have a dedicated starboard study, harbor lounge and large bathroom, plus a king-size bed and plenty of storage space for long cruises. There are also two VIPs and another double cabin.
The 26XP has a 55 m² flybridge. The second console unit and another dining area at the front are partially enclosed by the radar mast, while the rear sun lounge is a completely open space and nothing of this terrace, which is only a few meters above sea level, obscures the spectacular view.
The flybridge is large enough to provide storage space for a 3.5 meter tender. The spacious guest areas; modern, stylish and refined interior; maximum processing quality and efficient drive; and her naval architecture make the Numarine 26XP one of the most sought-after sub-30 meter yachts on the market.
The displacement version of the 26XP has a top speed of 13.5 knots and a cruising speed of 9 knots.
Numarine, a European high-performance motor yacht builder headquartered in Istanbul, offers a range of yachts from 19m to 45m.
