Turkish builder Numarine has expanded its XP fleet of explorer yachts, with the launch of the first 22XP ‘mini explorer’ yacht in Istanbul. The 22XP becomes the entry-level boat in the XP Series.

The company partnered with longstanding collaborator Can Yalman for exterior and interior design, while Umberto Tagliavini penned the naval architecture. The new yacht has large angular windows like the larger 26XP model, large social areas and a spacious flybridge. 

The new yacht has almost all the same features as the 26XP but inside a 22-metre hull, and Numarine says the 22XP’s interior is among the most voluminous for a 70-footer on the market.

The layout of the 22XP offers three or four cabins, including a full-beam master suite. All of them are on the lower deck, filled with natural light. There are also an expansive main deck saloon, open cockpit and a flybridge.

“The 22XP has been a success from the very first design stages.” stated Ömer Malaz, Numarine chairman “Five units had already been sold even before launching the first one. Having the bigger sister boat’s DNA and success, we will see many 22XP in the Mediterranean sea in the upcoming seasons.”

The official debut of the new Numarine 22XP will be at 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival, running 6-11 September 2022.
