Are all semi-custom yachts the same, with master suites forward, and hot tubs or small pools on the sundeck? How would you like to step forward out sliding glass doors from your suite and relax next to your own private waterfall out on deck? This is just one intriguing layout suggestion from Numarine, aboard its newest (and largest) megayacht model. The Turkey-based shipyard is positioning the Numarine 45XP to attract different-minded customers.
Ready to start build, the long-range motoryacht has a few twists on the general arrangement. The unusual master suite, however, will likely get the attention of most customers. (On a related note, the shipyard reports it’s already in discussions with a few potential buyers.) As seen in both images below, this lets the 148-foot (45-meter) Numarine 45XP rival far larger, fully custom yachts for creativity. It doesn’t mean crew can’t access the foredeck, however. Side decks alongside the wheelhouse, one deck up, descend down past the waterfall to let them handle important gear and fenders.
Although it’s a suggested layout idea, the Numarine 45XP is open to customer input. So, for those who don’t like the typical saloon and dining room combination, choose instead to have a bar inside the aft deck. You can then create a cozy seating area forward. Notably, it can be adjacent to sliding glass doors leading out to a balcony. Sliding glass doors are to both sides of the deck here, in fact.
Eight friends and family can join you on cruises. You can plan far-flung cruises, too. The Numarine 45XP boasts a reported range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 to 12 knots. Twin Caterpillar diesel engines further permit an expected top speed of 16 knots.
With a 30-foot (9.25-meter) beam and draft of 7 feet (2.2 meters), the Numarine 45XP additionally remains beneath the 500-gross-ton threshold.
