Numarine, the European high performance motor-yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul, offering a range of yachts from 62' - 105', is excited to unveil the full details of the hull #1 of the 26XP Series. This compact 26-meter expedition vessel was sold in May 2016 to a returning customer from Turkey, his fourth Numarine boat to date. The first 26XP was launched in February 2018 and underwent extensive and highly successful sea trials ahead of the delivery.
“Our latest new yacht launched is the 26XP”, said Omer Malaz, Founder and Chairman of Numarine. “The hull #1 has been delivered to its owner with an impressive max speed over 28 knots in the semi-planing hull option with MAN 1550hp engines and class leading noise and vibration control giving below 35dBA in cabins at anchor with generator running”.
Modern lines and trustable naval architecture
Numarine’s long-term collaborator Can Yalman designed the 26XP’s exterior and interior. Naval architecture is by Umberto Tagliavini, another perennial partner of the shipyard. She is very modern, even futuristic, due to angular windows and a vertical bow, and carries the DNA of a larger model, the 32XP, the first of which was launched last summer. Designed to offer the same capabilities of her longer sisters, the 26XP’s smaller draft allows her to berth in shallow harbors. The yacht has a well-proven and efficient hull, especially designed for ocean cruising.
The first very efficient, semi-planing 26XP unit is equipped with a pair of MAN 1550 hp engines. The superyacht achieves a maximum speed of 28 knots, with a cruising speed of 18 knots.
Sophisticated interiors, compact body
The 26XP’s sophisticated interior is spacious and refined. There are four large guest cabins belowdecks. The master suite is situated amidships. It is large enough to have a dedicated study to starboard, a lounge to portside and a vast bathroom in addition to the king-sized bed and plenty of storage space for long cruises. There are also two VIPs and one more twin cabin.
Social areas on board are ample. The 2.5-deck yacht has an extensive main saloon with full height windows that saturate the interior with natural light. The saloon’s layout is simple and classical. It has a cozy lounge with a C-shaped couch and a sofa in the aft and an internal dining area adjacent to the galley. Outside spaces of the main deck help guests to stay connected with the sea. In the bow, three settees form a very private space with amazing view.
In the aft, connected with the saloon via large glass doors, there is an open dining area and an oversized comfortable sunbed. From here, two stairs lead to a generous beach platform right.
