The first diesel-electric project in Numarine’s 20-year history is underway. In fact, three are sold. They’re all part of the Numarine 30XP series, the latest model in the shipyard’s XP series.
That series, which includes the flagship Numarine 37XP, notably prioritizes long-range cruising. For instance, the 37XP has a reported 6,000-nautical-mile range at 8 knots. That’s greater range than typical for a 122-footer (37.1-meter). The new 101-foot (30.75-meter) Numarine 30XP, meanwhile, should see 1,600 nautical miles at an 11-knot cruise. That’s more than enough to go from Maine to Miami, or from Boston to the Bahamas. While the diesel-electric system includes Veth pod drives, buyers can opt instead for conventional MAN propulsion and drives.
Either way, Numarine sees the new model meeting the needs of customers wishing to commission a bigger boat. According to Numarine founder and chairman Ömer Malaz, all three 30XP contracts are for existing clients, too.
With a generous 292-gross-ton volume, the Numarine 30XP meets their needs in several ways. Firstly, the megayacht has accommodations for 10 in five staterooms. Naturally, the master suite sits forward on the main deck, with floor-to-ceiling glass. It further offers an optional fold-down balcony. Since buyers can tailor the interior and outside layouts to their liking, clients can enjoy dining entirely alfresco, with tables on the main aft deck and beneath the hardtop. There’s still room inside the aft-deck doors for a more formal dining area, too. The 24-foot (7.35-meter) beam makes the social spaces look and feel comfortable for the full crowd.
What surely will get buyers’ attention, though, is the elevated leisure area aft on the main deck. The shipyard and designer Can Yalman chose to create a split-level layout here aboard the Numarine 30XP. It lets owners and guests enjoy better views if settees occupy the elevated area. And, it lends a little more headroom to the beach club directly below. Three fold-down platforms make the beach club even roomier, expanding it to 463 square feet (43 square meters). It doesn’t double as a toy garage, either, since a side-loading bay holds tenders up to 20’5” (6.25 meters).
Hull number one, with accommodations for five crew, should launch in May 2024.
