A new breed of Luxury Explorers has been created by Zeelander Yachts. The 49.9 metre Z164 not only delivers supreme explorer capabilities but also offers luxurious interior design and outfitting.
The reduced draft and practical length allows the vessel to discover shallower ports whilst still permitting ocean crossings in challenging weather conditions in full comfort and luxury. At a cruising speed of 10 knots, she is able to take guests over 11,500 nautical miles.
Economic ownership and operation is the driving force behind the Z164’s suitability and capacity for long range operations. This attention to detail throughout guarantees both environmentally friendly low emissions together with technical systems which are regulated and highly efficient. The yacht, therefore, leads the RINA Green Plus classification in the superyacht world. In addition, the cost of owning and operating this 50 metre superyacht is similar to that of a 30 metre yacht.
Reduction of noise and vibration while sailing or at anchor became a priority during the development of the Z164 Luxury Explorer. Effective counter-measures were taken with Zeelander Yachts optimising sound reduction for an almost silent ship and, ultimately, a pleasurable sailing experience for her guests.
