The 57-meter Explorer concept
Here’s a brand new concept design presented by the Italians at Hydro Tec. What we have here in fact are the design photos of the wonderful 57-meter long Explorer yacht, one of acclaimed designer’s Sergio Cutolo main realisations and best proofs of his extensive expertise.
The yacht designer has managed to put together a stunning-looking project based on the purposes of optimizing the onboard space and to provide as much comfort as possible. This amazing project further sports some solutions which will allow for a smarter and more complete use of the entire onboard space, further providing making possible the instillation with a full range of facilities that usually we see on larger superyachts.
There is full space for tender storage on either sides of the main deck, freeing up a huge chunk of the vessel. The area instead would be eligible to be used as a sauna, additional toy-storage or beach club. The Explorer is further suitable for exploration in cold environments as well as hot areas. The aft for example can be accessed via a corridor found on the lower deck, which runs through the engine room – in case of extreme weather, this is a staggeringly spot-on solution.
Regarding the overall layout of this exquisite cruiser, we’re quite baffled – this is about an original setting which comprises four double guest cabins, a VIP cabin, while an entire deck is available to the owner, with a massive cabin looking forward through large windows and a huge terrace overlooking the yacht’s bow. The Explorer further sports a lavish aft deck with spa pool on the upper deck, luxurious sky lounge and a nice area, belonging to the crew, on the lower deck, alongside refrigerated compartments and storage places.
Propulsion-wise, the 57-meter Explorer yacht is powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M 63 engines coupled to regular shaft lines. They allow the cruiser to reach a top speed of 16 knots and a more-than-enough cruising speed of 15 knots. Furthermore, considering the fuel tank capacity of 129,000 litres, we can calculate a range of 5,500 miles at 13 knots and 3,000 miles at 15 knots. And the maneuvering of the cruiser is quite easy as well – the Explorer boasts a bow thruster and 4-zero-speed electric stabilizers. Considering that it’s still a project waiting materialization, there are possibilities of it being fitted with hybrid or diesel electric engines.
