EXPLORER 62 – SAFETY FIRST

Explorer 62 is a project that has evolved over 3 intense and fruitful years of study and research. Everything has been thought out and designed to keep the initial promise- maximum safety!


Like a big explorer ship, the new Explorer 62 can navigate in all seas and under any weather conditions, making its guests feel safe and comfortable, every single day of the year.

Explorer 62 collects the experience of its older sister and offers in a size of almost 18 meters what was impossible to ask for in its category until now.
The self-supporting structure of the aluminum deck revolutionizes the way of building a yacht by offering a spectacular sensation of 360 ° panorama thanks to the full-height glass windows. The hull was designed for long journeys in complete safety, even though she can easily reach a speed of 25 knots.

DESIGN

The theme that characterises the new Explorer 62 is its innovative layout, designed to improve life on board for its guests. The key feature that strongly identifies it is the choice of the forward driving position, as in an explorer super yacht.

The bow is the wettest and windiest place on the moving boat and also most prone to oscillation caused by wave motion. As a result, having the helm station located in a more forward position makes navigation easier and safer.

This choice was made possible by the spacious cockpit, with an area covered by the fly which is furnished with a large dining table and an open area that can be fully customised, with sofas and accessories which can be moved and arranged as desired.

One of the special features of the layout is that the galley is positioned next to the steering position, which has two advantages- the convenience of navigating and cooking without leaving the steering position and the elegant solution of leaving the entrance to the main hall free.
The staircase to access the fly was moved to the port side, which is completely made of glass, to allow an optimal view of the stern from the helm station.

Exteriors and interiors can be connected as a single room by opening French windows, deconstructing a corner and allowing free circulation of air.

The boat is conceived as a modern flat where the only constraints are the sliding doors in the salon and the steering position. Everything is allowed to the shipowner, who can configure and furnish the cockpit and main deck with free-standing furniture to his liking.

On the lower deck you have the option of having the traditional owner’s cabin with separate bathroom and large closet or choose the open space version, with a transparent shower and exposed washbasins along the large window. Under the stairs to the sleeping quarters you can opt for an additional cabin with a single bed or alternatively a large pantry.

LIFE-SAVING BULB

The straight hull with life-saving bulb, completely watertight and insulated, has the function of breaking any objects that get in the way of the yacht’s navigation such as logs, floating objects, containers and any ice formations. The bulb is made entirely of fibreglass, located in the lower front part of the boat, and is designed to protect the hull and the Volvo Penta IPS pods.

DOUBLE SYSTEMS AND DOUBLE ANCHORS

Bilge and autoclave pumps, double anchor system, two winches and two 50 kg steel anchors. With her double systems, she is the only vessel under 20 metres to have a large-ship anchorage system.

FLY ACCESS

Explorer has a flybridge access ladder in the starboard area. Spacious steps provide a comfortable and safe passage between the main deck and the flybridge, without compromising the view when manoeuvring.

VISIBILITY

The main steering station is in a forward position towards the bow, the windscreen is made from a single piece of glass with a 180-degree view, to maximise the helmsman’s visibility. Two additional helm stations are located on the flybridge and aft.

LATERAL RESTRAINTS

Gunwales from bow to stern, higher than most yachts, to ensure lateral safety as in a large ship.

FULL STABILITY SYSTEM

The boat is equipped with a unique stability system, through 24 V electrical operation, consisting of carbon fins and flaps which are governed by a specially designed software. The software is constantly learning and evolving, collecting information and navigation data in order to constantly improve the management during the journey.

RANGE

The range is considerably increased compared to a traditional yacht, thanks to the efficient propulsion of two Volvo Penta IPS 800 engines that, managed by FSS software in autopilot together with a hull designed for long journeys, can reach 700 miles on a single refuel.

The software, once set up in conjunction with the autopilot, tries to maximise cruising speed with the lowest possible fuel consumption, adapting to sea and wind conditions. After more than four months of testing at sea, the software optimised its efficiency through self-learning, and further increased the yacht’s range.
