The 44 metre Eurocraft 44 Explorer yacht has hit the water in Italy at Savona-based shipyard Eurocraft Cantieri Navali. The new model is the second hull in the series and builds on the success of its predecessor, the 44 metre Baron Trenck, which has cruised 60,000 miles since its launch in 2011.
The Eurocraft 44 Explorer boasts a generous volume of 478 GT and a cruising range of 11,660 nautical miles that allows for long-range exploration. Her exterior possesses “the traditional lines of a modern superyacht with the influences of a strong and confident steel hull," according to brokerage company Fraser, who has listed the boat for sale.
According to Fraser sales broker Marco Fodale, the shipyard has made some upgrades since the launch of Baron Trenck including technological advances and an upgrade to the navigations systems, now optimised for world cruising, as well as a new interior layout.
Accommodation is provided across six cabins and the yacht’s elegant interiors have been created by the yard’s in-house team. Renderings reveal a contemporary, calm and serene onboard ambience with plenty of natural tones and marble touches.
“A stylish warm interior featuring dark wood and precious marbles will enable guests on board to feel comfortable in all weather conditions including at cold latitudes," says Fodale. "On the main deck, the new layout features a large American galley, with open space and a central island for social cooking."
In terms of features, the yacht is home to a large sundeck with a forward-facing Jacuzzi, protected from the elements by wraparound glass, a shaded lounge area and a spread of sunpads.
Her sistership has proven to be a popular charter platform over the years, and the new model will have many of the same crowd-pleasing amenities.
The launch took place on May 16 and the explorer yacht is set for delivery in summer 2022.
