He was therefore inspired by the aviation and racing industries, where the choice of materials allowed to reduce the weight while offering unmatched power and comfort. As a result, vacuum infusion and composites were the options chosen to provide the ideal vessel.
From there, the yachts had to be combined with equipment capable of offering owners the comfort necessary to navigate the vastness of the sea. Another important part was to offer customers the possibility of customizing them. The plan was implemented, and soon after, a specially designed facility was established in Gebze, Turkey. This is where Numarine’s range of XP explorer yachts was born, including its latest addition, the 37XP.
Unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 for the first time, the ship combines elegant looks with great functionality to deliver a “first class experience”. The 37XP is the shipyard’s largest exploration yacht to date and it features a full displacement steel hull and composite superstructure with smooth lines.
To create this spectacular ship, Numarine teamed up with long-standing partners, Umberto Tagliavini, in charge of naval architecture, and Can Yalman, who took care of the exterior.
Measuring 37 meters (121 feet) in length, the yacht features the same beam as its little brother, the 32XP. Although there was no change in the overall beam size, the engine room bulkhead gained another four meters (12 feet).
From there, the upper deck and sky lounge also benefit from additional space, allowing guests and crew to increase in volume. According to Boat International, the 37XP features a master bedroom on the main deck and four guest cabins, as well as a nanny cabin on the lower deck.
The overall interior design is more classic than the shipyard’s other exploration yachts. Numarine worked with the Italian studio Hot Lab to create a luxurious space for the guests and the owner.
The large bay windows give the impression that the exterior merges with the interior, creating a feeling of openness. In addition, they let natural light bathe every suite and every nook and cranny of the ship. The decorative elements and materials used have been combined in a clean design that features shades of beige and gray (which also give the impression of a larger interior).
Other impressive features of the 37XP are a luxurious 10-meter (33-foot) long flybridge that offers unobstructed views of the bow, stern and sides of the ship. From there, the owner can have a clear view of the nine-meter (29-foot) annex if it is not enough to wake up to a direct view of the water toy.
The upper deck has enough space to include the tender and up to three jet skis, and it can expand to become a large sunbathing platform. Other luxury amenities that guests will enjoy are a designated beach club and a hot tub on the terrace.
Technically, the yacht has been designed to operate in rough seas. According to Boat International, the 37XP is powered by two MAN 800 hp diesel engines that deliver a top speed of 15 knots (17 mph / 28 km / h). The vessel can navigate at a speed of 10 knots (11.5 mph / 18.5 km / h) for distances of up to 5,000 nautical miles (5,754 miles / 9,260 km).
