Numarine is making a name for itself stateside for building sporty yachts and megayachts. But it’s branching out into long-range motoryachts, too. That expansion caught the attention of a U.S. buyer, who recently signed for hull number two of the Numarine 32 XP series.
At 106’6” (32.5 meters), the Numarine 32 XP is much smaller than most 12-passenger megayachts. She’s voluminous, though, around 300 gross tons. She also goes farther than you might expect. The Turkish yacht builder says that at 9 knots, she should see 3,000 nautical miles. Twin 715-hp Caterpillar engines provide propulsion, also including an expected top speed of 14 knots. Numarine is confident in those figures due to sea trials on hull number one, launched in June. Related to this, hull number one beat the sound and vibration requirements of her classification standard, DNV Class 1 Comfort Class.
Featuring a steel hull and fiberglass superstructure, the Numarine 32 XP is semi-custom. Customers can therefore select soft goods and arrange rooms as they see fit. However, guest staterooms go below decks, as do the crew’s quarters. The shipyard suggests two VIP staterooms and two double cabins for friends and family. Crew gets accommodations for five, including the captain’s cabin. They also get their own mess, as well as stairs straight to the galley on the main deck.
Speaking of the main deck, not many 107-footers feature main-deck masters. But the Numarine 32 XP does. It comprises about 323 square feet (30 square meters), including a his-and-her head with a shower between them. What’s more, there’s yet another master suite on the upper deck. It’s larger, too, at 431 square feet (40 square meters). Plus, buyers can face the bed aft, toward the sliding-glass doors out to the aft deck area. Whoever stays in the main-deck owner’s stateroom shouldn’t feel slighted, though. A compact gym sits steps outside their door, to starboard.
With a 646-square-foot (60-square-meter) flying bridge topping everything off, guests aboard the Numarine 32 XP have a lot to appreciate.
