Turkish builder Numarine has sold the third unit in its 40MXP (Mediterranean Explorer) series, known provisionally as 40MXP-03. Her home port will be the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, with delivery scheduled for July 2025.
The 40MXP-03 was sold by Jeffrey Stanley of Gilman Yachts who represented the buyer and Alex G. Clarke of Dension Yachting who represented the shipyard. Noteworthy features include a dedicated dive centre and innovative open transom with pool.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests across six cabins, three of which are master cabins. This includes a private owners suite on the upper deck, a main deck master forward and a third full-beam master on the lower deck.
Per the owners' request, the upper helm on the sundeck has been replaced with a forward-facing lounge area, while the flybridge will have a custom barbecue area with additional counter spaces. All dining areas (in the main saloon, aft deck and flybridge) will also be arranged with extended 12-person tables.
The dive centre will occupy the aft lazarette, with custom storage for scuba equipment, a compressor, masks and fins, wetsuits, tanks and water sports toys. A Marquip transformer from Opacmare will be fitted on the swim platform for ease of access during the owners' diving operations. As the owners are also avid fishermen, this area will have a tackle centre, equipped with a large tow behind the tender.
"This is the eleventh Numarine sold by Alex G. Clarke and Denison Yachting since partnering together over three years ago," said Numarine chairman Omer Malaz. "We are very pleased with our fruitful cooperation and will develop it in future. Our expedition yachts, in turn, proved they are among the best in the industry."
Benefitting from upgraded IMO Tier III MAN engines, the 40MXP-03 is expected to have an impressive range of 5,000 nautical miles.
This announcement follows the delivery of Numarine's 37.2-metre Rockit, differentiated from the previous 37XP models by her upper deck skylounge.Read More/Numarine delivers 37m Rockit
