Numarine, the European high performance motor yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul with a range from 62′ – 105’, has successfully delivered the third superyacht of the 32XP Series.
Firstly, the 32XP unit number 3 is a sister ship to the first hull of the series, M/Y Marla (delivered in summer 2017), and has a similar look and layout.
Perfect compact explorer
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. 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 Numarine’s Founder and Chairman Ömer 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.
View from outside
The 32XP, as well as other models in the series, looks very different comparing to the shipyard’s 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 is a spacious main saloon and several outside areas to socialize, including a large couch area with bimini and cocktail table forward of the wheelhouse and a huge flybridge.
The 32XP unit no. 3 has six cabins, including the master suite forward on the main deck. Another roomy VIP cabin is on the upper deck aft. It opens up via sliding doors to the incredibly large open deck. In navigation, it can even fit a spectacular 9-meter RIB tender and two PWCs with the help of the 2.5 Tons crane.
Also, four additional guest cabins are placed on the lower deck. Additionally, the third 32XP accommodates up to 12 guests and is ready for long cruises thanks to her proven hull and ample of storage facilities.
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.
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. So they 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, said 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 once minimalistic, yet sophisticated. Compact, yet spacious. Glamorous, yet reliable and seaworthy. Moreover, 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 8 knots.
