How to get your hands on Numarine's startling new 32XP
The first examples of one of the world’s most eye-catching high performance motoryachts, the Numarine 32XP, are now being built and are available for purchase through Sydney-based agent Q7 Marine.
The radical Can Yalman design, along with Numarine’s fastidious attention to detail and focus on performance combined with luxury, makes the new 32XP a boat that will stand out in any marina.
Q7 Marine, based at d’Albora Marina at Cabarita Point, is the official Australian representative of both Turkish boatbuilder Numarine and US-based Defever Yachts, whilst maintaining a comprehensive and consistently revolving brokerage of second-hand yachts and cruisers both domestic and international.
The first 32 XP is constructed at Numarine's Istanbul shipyards.
The 32XP delivers Numarine’s signature striking lines and head-turning looks in a 32-metre single-hull craft propelled by two CAT C18 Acert units developing 715hp each, and with a cruising range at 12 knots of around 3000 nautical miles. It includes accommodations for 12 guests – incorporating a full-width owner’s cabin – plus space for five staff.
Numarine (numarine.com.au) worked with the Silent Line Group to achieve noise and vibration suppression it says is equivalent to a 50-metre craft. A larger member of the XP family, at 40 metres in length, is still being developed.
Earlier this year, Q7 Marine took delivery of another model from Numarine’s growing range, the 62HT. The 19.1-metre (62 foot) fibreglass hull cruiser features three guest cabins all with ensuite toilets, plus a full-beam owner’s suite that features a Numarine trademark, diamond-shaped windows at the water level. The Australian 62HT (pictured below in Darling Harbour) has since been sold, but Q7 director Paul Miletta said its owner enjoyed the boat so much that they wanted to upgrade to the 78-foot Numarine 78HTS model.
Says Miletta of the 62HT: “The boat is vacuum infused, the quietness is unbelievable, we are cruising with 67dba at the helm. The space for a 62 is like that of a 70-footer. We've managed to get everything on one level and we have full standing height in the engine room.”
