The explorers are boats that are usually used for ocean researches and explorations or to explore the seabed to update the nautical cartography, while many explorers that are built now symbolize the latest vocation for the development of luxury megayachts. They are displacement boats equipped with large engines with hulls and superstructures built to safely explore every type of sea, except that unlike working ships, these boats sail between luxury and comfort with the interiors and deck that more to boats to the research, resemble those of prestigious luxury yachts.
They are luxury boats built to sail around the world with any sea conditions and make long cruises in the most remote places on the planet in total autonomy of both fuel and food. Designed to sail the most distant seas and to admire even the most evocative and structured views from inside, so that on board there is always a garage where you can lodge tenders and various equipment for land and sea patrols.
For several years now, explorers have been enjoying great appreciation among shipowners, especially those that are stable and silent, using eco-sustainable systems with high autonomy with cold rooms and stowage areas to navigate without stopping exceeding 5000 miles.
This type of boat are built for those owners who prefer functionality above all, not neglecting beauty and comfort. Boats that can be reached at any time through the use of helicopters and always allow in complete safety to venture into those places of the world little known by the Arctic in the tropics in the footsteps of the first explorers in the middle of the polar ice or near the wild passages of the Amazon and South America to experience unforgettable experiences between landscapes and wilderness without risk.
For shipyards the development of this boat represents a great job opportunity and the number of Explorer yachts is destined to increase. Many are striving to make these boats ever better, more comfortable and more enjoyable to enjoy the sea and the world. For precisely Winch Design, Wally and the German shipyard Nobiskrug which boasts a technically advanced production capacity recognized worldwide for the construction of steel megayachts announced at the latest Monaco Yacht Show their new collaboration for the construction of a concept Explorer of 83 meters.
“By combining the skills and experience of both our companies, we look forward to a close and successful partnership. We share the vision of providing our superyacht customers with innovative technology combined with the best yacht building quality and this will be the main engine of our cooperation “, says Holger Kahl, Managing Director of Nobiskrug.
“We are very proud that Nobiskrug has chosen Wally to innovate the mega yacht market while Wally wants to offer the best construction opportunities for its one-of-a-kind projects. “Declared Luca Bassani, President of Wally” Nobiskrug is known for its strength in engineering and the indisputable manufacturing quality of the great steel superyachts and this partnership will strategically integrate our portfolio of activities “.
Through the monthly magazine of luxury yachting Boat International the founder of the British studio Winch Design, Andrew Winch has issued the following statement: “It is very funny and a great honor to work with Luca Bassani. This has been a dream of mine since I saw the first Wallygator. This project was a bit like a rolling snowball – it came together very quickly. “It was a moment of pride for the Winch team, who can not wait to work with these two iconic names in the superyacht sector, on what will be a truly revolutionary project.”
Nothing is yet known about the details of this new 83-meter vessel that promises to be full of novelties and innovations. What is known for sure from the initial widespread information is that the German shipyard has already developed the naval platform where the project will actually be implemented and that the yacht will be built in steel and aluminum. The hull will be developed in a futuristic, elegant, sporty, futuristic style. Consistent with the type of boat certainly will be provided ample space for landing helicopters and to house other “toys”. On the highest part of the superstructure there is the control panel with the owner’s cabin, with its private terrace with a view.
The upper deck is characterized by wide open spaces with two rectangular pools 20 meters long and 5 meters wide and plenty of space for outdoor dining, sunbathing, socializing and relaxing.
On the main deck will be built a large panoramic living room all within a space that has a height of 4 meters immersed in daylight from natural light that receives laterally through panels of glass plate and from above. All the telecommunications systems will be incorporated into a dome-shaped superstructure, a tried and tested solution on the famous Wally Power 118 yacht. On the lower deck there will be a whole series of services to make life on board even more comfortable and enjoyable. a spa and a movie screening room.
While at the bow there will be the preparation of a large garage to house tenders, various equipment and other means.
We just have to wait for the realization of this huge steel yacht that the same Luca Bassani has announced: “that will be something else, something very, very different. It is very exciting “.
