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 allowed us to offer a 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.
MAXIMUM SAFETY ON BOARD
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. STRUCTURAL TANKS Certified structural fuel and fresh water tanks which are tested to improve hull stability and strength. (2800 Lt fuel, 1000 Lt water) 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. For maximum stability even when stationary, the American Seakeeper stabiliser can be additionally installed. 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 Explorer 62's structural fuel tank has a capacity of 2800 litres. During our tests, using her two Volvo Penta IPS 800 engines at a speed of 11/12 knots, the average consumption was 50 l/h; this can allow her to sail for a good 60 hours and cover almost 700 miles. 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. DEDICATED APPLICATION The yacht is equipped with a specific, custom-designed application with comprehensive graphics and explanations, which can easily be installed on handhelds and tablets. Designed and produced by Centrostiledesign.

By visiting many ports and meeting many shipowners I always gathered information from different markets and different cultures. What emerges is that they all seek the same thing: maximum comfort. Space, functionality, comfort. Boats are like houses, but the environment in which they have to navigate, like brackish water, is aggressive and constantly changing. This made the challenge of building the Explorer Yacht even more exciting. The theme that characterises the new Explorer 62 is its innovative layout, designed to improve life on board for its guests.
