The NedXplor 38 is a brand new displacement explorer yacht design developed in collaboration with Perry van Oossanen of Van Oossanen Naval Architects, the team of Omega Architects by Frank Laupman and Bernie Challis from IYC Monaco.
The NedXplor 38 is a one of a kind opportunity that encompasses Dutch design and naval architecture in a manageably sized unique with outstanding features and pedigree.
In a market full of explorer concepts, the NedXplor 38 is in a class of its own. She features a bold, masculine exterior, complemented by a warmer, feminine elegant interior, she effortlessly combines form and function and is a true world traveler capable of visiting every corner of the globe. Her near vertical bow and forward leaning wheelhouse with reversed inclining windows give her a distinct look that is sure to appeal to a wide audience.
Carefully designed for ease of use and to maximize all onboard spaces, ensuring huge volume and storage, the NedXplor 38 can accommodate 10 guests and seven crew. The interior, by the Omega Architects team, is elegant, warm and instinctively laid out, with large light-filled spaces flooded with natural light due to full height glass windows.
Featuring a formidable combination of the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) and the patented ‘under water spoiler’ Hull Vane® by Van Oossanen she is efficient and economic to run, with this hull form ensuring a 30 per cent fuel saving, with over 5000nm achievable on just one tank of fuel. The Hull Vane has also been designed so it can be built to Ice Class if desired, perfect for Arctic exploration and an attractive add-on for the truly adventurous of heart. The yacht’s size paired with the Hull Vane® is an interesting proposal for owners looking for a truly adventurous yacht without the size and investment that a much larger explorer yacht requires.
Stand out features include a large owner’s cabin on the main deck plus four additional guest cabins on the lower deck, a spacious main saloon, a sky lounge, full beach club, and gym. Large outdoor spaces including panoramic sundecks, a Portuguese bridge and generous lounging terrace, with 360-degree views from the distinctive raised aft deck.
We have captured the NedXplor 38 in two models, the EDGE globe trotting version and the elegant VOGUE model.
A SPACIOUS AND ELEGANT INTERIOR
The interior atmosphere is minimalistic, interactive and warm. Minimalistic naturally toned colours predominate creating a cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Clients will have the option to select décor elements of the salon and accommodation areas to create their desired atmosphere.
Luxury amenities and features usually found on larger yachts are available, such as a large sky lounge on the upper deck and a vast 73mÇ convertible beach club (with hatches open).
SALON & DINING AREA:
A cosy environment to relax in comfort but yet with a dining area that has a communal feel to it.
Optimized height glass windows offer stunning views, making the salon feel suspended in the outside space. Natural light predominates with little artificial light needed during the day.
The guest accommodation areas are spacious. The large owner’s stateroom is located on the main deck, on the same level as the large main salon/dining area.
The lower deck hosts four guest staterooms on the same level as the convertible beach club.
Capacity for additional facilities such as cold/dry storage and laundry on the special sub lower tank deck.
