New interior renderings of in-build XPM 85 revealed

20 October 2023

Turkish shipbuilder Naval Yachts has released interior renderings of its 24.5-metre flagship explorer XPM 85. In-build, the yacht was recently sighted in the construction shed for the first time.

The XPM 85 was designed as a global explorer and is currently for sale with Northrop & Johnson. Spanning three decks, its utilitarian exterior profile and naval architecture is the work of Artnautica in collaboration with Dennis Harjaama. Interiors are by the in-house design team at Naval Yachts. 

Cabins are configured as a master suite with two guest cabins and an additional cabin for crew. Initial renderings reveal a contemporary aesthetic that incorporates integrated lighting, lacquered wall panelling and a muted colour palette of cream and charcoal-grey.

The XPM 85 is built in aluminium, chosen for its lightness and durability, and will be MCA certified, offering its owners the option to operate the vessel commercially. Building on the shipyard's smaller XPM 78 model, the XPM 85 will benefit from an extended saloon and flybridge. The saloon height and flybridge height have been also raised, offering more headroom and a greater feeling of space. Other features include an aft deck with an L-shaped seating area, barbeque, fridge and sink.

Power will come from a pair of Scania 250HP diesel engines assisted by 36 square metres of solar panels that can generate enough power to run the hotel load and supply the yacht's Lithium batteries. The XPM 85 will have a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 3,400 nautical miles at nine knots.

The XPM 85 is also equipped with Humphree fin stabilisers, offering improved comfort at anchor and underway.

Also underway at Naval Yachts is the first XPM 78 catamaran and the second 23.9-metre XPM 78 monohull.
