The Briefing was simple; engaging styling and the seamless integration of systems.
When Omer Malaz of Numarine set out with the plan to create a new 32 metre explorer, he naturally followed the philosophy of Apple. With Intuitive systems throughout, and a beautifully simplistic aesthetic, the result is a yacht that exceeds all expectations.
Numarine’s premier 32XP Series is the ground breaking launch from the Turkish shipyard, offering 330 square metres of living space, accommodation for 12 guests and a range of 3000 Nautical Miles.
From the shore, Marla’s exterior lines are reminiscent of a Trawler yacht: Sturdy, Strong and Angular, with an inverted windscreen wrapping the pilot house. A contemporary vertical bow pierces the water, widening to allow for a full beam master suite forward. Heading astern, reassuringly high bulwarks are intersected with reinforced glass, allowing light to cast through full height windows into the main saloon.
The tri-deck juggles the delicate balance between a capable explorer and a luxury yacht with ease, luxury marble finished cabinetry, dripped copper lampshades and bespoke wooden deckhead panels are integrated with future proof tech. The user interface was designed by Energy Solutions of the UK and has proved such a success that Captain Antonio Del Mastro feels confident to run the Yacht without an engineer, getting a grasp of all the systems within a matter of weeks.
A fully bespoke cabin arrangement below deck provides space for 2 twins and 2 double cabins, a full beam VIP is located forward on the main deck – the owners suite is in complete seclusion located on the upper deck, creating a private and tranquil space away from distraction.
The award winning insulation specialists ‘Silent Line’ were consulted throughout the build – using ‘box-in-a-box’ technology: a technology usually reserved for yachts greater than 80m LOA – At full operation, the interior noise levels are 5db higher than the average library!
Marla has a generous sundeck with over 60 square metres of social space, loungers are laid out next to the cocktail bar and a large dining table can seat 12 comfortably, to the aft is a relaxed seating area and coffee table, whilst a secondary helm can be found forward. The exterior space on main deck is home to a 9m Technohull RIB, a decision to go larger was made by Malaz after a personal encounter with choppy seas in a smaller 6m – another example of how the yacht balances practicality and luxury.
From astern, a large garage door unfolds to reveal the beach club, this casual space is home to an L shaped seating area, and sits just 20cm above the water allowing a graceful entrance into the water. With plenty of room for toys – the beach club is generally reserved for larger yachts, but the space is executed perfectly and the balance between luxury and practicality has once again been met.
Numarine have created an exceptional yacht; explorer credentials, bespoke finishes and personal touches from the owner have combined to create a masterpiece that exceeds all specifications.
