The 12th unit of the 25.68-metre solar-powered yacht Numarine 26XP has been delivered to a Turkish owner.Can Yalman is the designer behind Numarine 26XP’s exteriors and interiors. Her vertical bow and generous use of angular windows lend the yacht a modern-look, while also allowing ample natural-light to flood her interiors. Umberto Tagliavini, a long-time collaborator of Numarine, was the naval architect on the project.
On board, the most-recently delivered 26XP features a standard model layout and can accommodate up to eight guests across her four staterooms, with an amidships master stateroom equipped with a study, lounge, and spacious en-suite bathroom.
The yacht includes a main saloon featuring a lounge with a C-shaped couch and an interior formal dining area. Moving up, guests can find a 55 square-metre flybridge with a carbon fibre hard top cover with 44.5-square metres of solar panels, unique to this unit, that partially-covers a second dining area. On her fly bridge, aft of the dining area, is a fully-open sun lounge as well as storage space for a 3.5-metre tender.
Additional lounge space is located on her aft deck, with an open dining area and oversized sunbed. The water is accessible via two staircases that lead to a beach platform.
The solar-powered yacht can generate up to 7,530 watts of power, that charge a generator equipped with extra lithium batteries. According to Omer Malaz, Founder and Chairman of Numarine, her new owners intend to “operate her fully functioning without any generator power during the day.”
In addition to her solar-powered energy, the solar-hybrid yacht sports twin MAN engines that allow her to cruise comfortably at 9 knots and reach a maximum speed of up to 13 knots. The fuel-efficient hull has a cruising range of up to 3,000 nautical miles at 8 knots.
