Turkish boatbuilder Numarine has delivered three new superyachts in its XP Series of explorer yachts. Two of the new yachts — hulls 24 and 25 — were built on the 26XP platform, while the third — hull number 11 — is the 37XP.

The 26XP and 37XP were designed by the Turkish shipyard’s long-time collaborators: Umberto Tagliavini, responsible for naval architecture, and Can Yalman, who oversees exterior and interior design.

The news comes after Numarine reported a strong year in 2022-2023, with its best-ever year for sales.

The Numarine 37XP Maya sports a full displacement steel hull with a composite superstructure.

The yacht has a spacious interior with several social areas and interior decoration by Rezzan Benardete. The main deck saloon and cabins benefit from large windows that flood them with sunlight. The aft beach club features a bathing platform and an inside lounge situated at water level. Ample outdoor spaces are another major feature of the new model.

The Numarine 37XP is a 345 GT superyacht with a range of 6,000 nautical miles at 8 knots. It can autonomously cover 5,000 nm at 10 knots and has a maximum speed of 14 knots.

Currently, the 37XP is the largest launched model in the Numarine fleet — and will be until the new 40MXP touches the water in 2025.

The wide-body flybridge extends almost 10 metres, providing 83 square metres of space. The 37XP can accommodate up to seven guest cabins, including the master suite on the main deck.

There’s also a large suite on the upper deck with an aft-facing bed and some owners prefer to use this one as the master cabin. This space benefits from direct access to the vast outside terrace via a glass door. While underway, this terrace serves as tender storage, capable of carrying a tender up to 9 metres in length. Once launched, the area can be utilised for outdoor sports, sunbathing, or parties.

Numarine says the 37XP has appropriate stability, seakeeping capabilities, manoeuvrability, and general handling to support offshore and worldwide cruising. This is achieved through its efficient displacement hull, which has been updated for maximum performance and comfort.

Three more 37XPs will be delivered in 2024.

Numarine 26XP

The 26XP features a standard layout with four large guest cabins below deck. This yacht is a displacement version with a bulbous bow, powered by twin 560 hp MAN engines. The two newly launched 26XPs are both equipped with solar panels on top to provide energy for hotel loads and 80 kW Lithium batteries.

One of the 26XP’s most attractive features is the 70 sq. m. flybridge. The radar mast partially encloses the second console unit and another dining area in the front, while the rear sun lounge is fully open. Nothing obstructs the views from this terrace, which is only a few metres above sea level. The flybridge is big enough to provide storage space for a 3.5-metre tender.

The onboard systems that resolve noise and vibration issues come from the shipyard’s long-standing partner, Silent Line.

The yacht’s overall style is modern, characterised by its angular windows and a vertical bow, and it carries the DNA of the larger XP Series models. Designed to offer the same capabilities as its longer sisters, the 26XP’s smaller draft allows it to berth in shallow harbours. The yacht has a hull designed for ocean cruising.

The 26XP’s master suite is situated amidships and large enough to accommodate a dedicated study to starboard, a lounge to portside, and a bathroom. In addition to the king-sized bed and storage space for long cruises, there are also two VIP cabins and one twin cabin.

The shipyard has plenty of glass to ensure that the interior is filled with natural light. Additionally, a section of the large saloon windows slides open to create a floating balcony over the sea. The yacht has a main saloon with full-height windows, with a cosy lounge featuring a C-shaped couch and a sofa in the aft, along with an internal dining area adjacent to the galley. Outside spaces on the main deck help guests stay connected with the sea. In the bow, three settees form a very private space with amazing views.

The displacement version of the 26XP has a maximum speed of 13.5 knots and a cruising speed of 9 knots. The efficient hull offers greater fuel efficiency with up to 3,000 nm at 8 knots. This model is also available with a planing hull.
