The Italian Hydro Tec presents to the market its very new concept design for a 57 m Explorer yacht. Relying on its founder Sergio Cutolo extensive experience in explorer yacht design they are develope the project with the aim to optimize the spaces onboard to obtain the maximum comfort.
The project includes several solutions that will allow a smarter and more complete use of the onboard spaces, making it possible for the yacht to be equipped with a range of facilities that are usually more common to larger vessels. With use of the onboard spaces you can have storing tenders on either side of the main deck, frees up the aft part of the boat, so this could become easily a beach club, a sauna area or it could also be the garage for additional toys. The Yacht is suitable for exploration in cold as well as hot climate. The aft area, for instance, could be accessed through a corridor located on the lower deck, that goes through the engine room space: a very good solution for extreme climates.
The layout plan offers the guest four double cabin, plus a Vip cabin, while a full deck is entirely dedicated to the owner, with a huge cabin looking forward through big windows and with a huge terrace overlooking the bow area. Other details that enriches the projects are a luxurious sky lounge, a generous aft deck with a spa pool on the upper deck. The crew area include a generous under lower deck where all the storage and refrigerated compartments are located. Powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M 63 coupled to conventional shaft lines, the Explorer 57 has a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 15. With a fuel tank capacity of 129.000 Lt the range is 3000 miles at 15 knots, or 5500 miles at 13 knots.
Maneuvering will be implemented by a bow thruster and the vessel will be equipped by four zero speed electric stabilizers. The project also consider the possibility to equip the vessel with diesel electric or hybrid propulsion systems.
