Numarine delivers super silent solar panelled 26XP explorer

19 March 2021 • Written by Ria Wolstenholme

Turkish yard Numarine has delivered the 12th hull in its 26XP explorer yacht series to a Turkish owner.

Designed by long-term collaborator Can Yalman, the 26XP yacht model features naval architecture by Umberto Tagliavini.

Numarine founder and chairman Omer Malaz described the model as “one of the most innovative in the entire 26XP fleet” thanks to a “super silent package”.

The inclusion of additional Lithium batteries will allow the owners to operate the yacht without any generator power during the day, while the yard also worked with Silent Line to reduce noise and vibration on board.

The owner made a number of customisations, including an extended carbon fibre hardtop covering the flybridge and 44.5 square metres of solar panels with the total power of 7530 watt-peak.

Inside the “spacious and refined” interior, the yacht features four large guest cabins, comprising a master suite, two VIPs and a twin.

The extensive use of exterior glass floods the interior with natural light, while a large section of the saloon windows slides open to create a floating balcony with far-reaching ocean views. The exterior meanwhile is described as “modern and futuristic’, with angular windows and a vertical bow.

Power comes from a pair of MAN R6-560hp engines for a max speed of 13.5 knots and range of 3,000 nautical miles at eight knots.
