Inside Valerio Rivellini's extending stern explorer yacht concept

4 February 2021• Written by Miranda Blazeby

Superyacht designer Valerio Rivellini has revealed a 56 metre explorer yacht concept named Extended Explorer.

Marrying the “reliability of military vehicles” with the “comfort and innovative power of the most luxurious pleasure yachts”, the hybrid explorer features numerous options for owner customisation.

The standout innovation of the design is its extendable stern. A single extendable platform allows the main and upper decks to be expanded at the same time.

When extended, the stern of the upper deck can be used for sunbathing and relaxation and also features a dining area amidships. The stern platform of the main deck meanwhile opens up towards the sea and features enough room for an outdoor gym on one side and a sunbathing area on the other. The main deck also features direct access to the beach club below.

The upper deck meanwhile is dedicated to the owner and features a full beam suite with far reaching ocean views.

Speaking about the design, Rivellini said: “While Extended Explorer’s stability and robustness enable it to tackle the icy seas of the North in total safety and comfort, the exterior spaces are ideal for fully enjoying the warmer seas, from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, thanks to their breadth and versatility, which are further enhanced by the extendable stern.”

The “elegant and relaxed” interiors can also be customised to the owner’s preferences and features materials including nubuck leather fabrics in blue shades and white lacquer.
