Numarine, the European high performance motor yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul with a range from 62′ – 105’, is delighted to announce that its flagship, M/Y Marla, has won the prestigious Asia Boating Award 2018 in the “Best Explorer Yacht” category. The award-giving ceremony was held at ONE°15 Marina, Singapore ahead of the 2018 Singapore Yacht Show.
The 32.5-metre superyacht, unit #1 of the new 32XP Series has been delivered last summer to her Owner. Hulls no. 2 and 3 were sold after the delivery of the first.
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 Ömer 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.
M/Y Marla 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 construction 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 Ömer Malaz puts it, she is inspired by hi-tech companies and devices that run the world now. The yacht is easy to manage thanks to the user-friendly interface developed by Energy Solutions, and the captain runs her without an engineer.
She accommodates up to 12 guests and is ready for long cruises thanks to her proven hull and ample of storage facilities. The level of comfort on board is spectacular. Special attention has been paid to reduction of noise and vibration using modern technologies. Even when Marla is running, the noise level on board does not exceed 45 decibels; it is quiet like a library.
