First View of Numarine 130

Breaking News of Brand New Design

Sitting around a table at a hotel in Bodrum Turkey waiting to test a boat for SuperYacht World magazine last year I was talking with Can Yalman and Tommaso Spadolini two of Turkeys top yacht designers and Omer Malaz the owner of Numarine

The banter began with them looking into how big a yacht they could build in composite and the general consensus came in at around 40 metres or 130 feet.

“Why don’t you design it for us?” asks Malaz

“Because you have not paid us to do so!” retort the designer duo

“You design it and I will build it!” Malaz quips back

“That we will!” is the designers speedy reply.

The gauntlet thrown down and picked up by the contender, suddenly they realise they have in their midst, a yachting journalist and I am immediately sworn to secrecy until such time as I am told I can reveal all.

That day has come and I can now unveil the very first rendering of the brand new, never been seen before: Numarine 130. At 40 metres she will have 8.5 metre beam and reach an impressive 28 knots underway. Early layouts show she will have either 5 or 6 guest cabins one of which will be a full beam master suite.

She will also boast in what is likely to be a first for any semi production yacht building in Turkey, drop down balconies one each side of the main saloon and a third in the master suite. A crew of 7 will be carried in four cabins.

  1. Cool architecture! The features of this yacht are surely made for the “machos”. I wish my Dad would buy one for our new plans of global boat shipping. We usually sail down and up the coast. It is actually the nature of our family; sailing is one characteristic we all have in common. We can’t help it; it runs through our blood as descendants of a well-known sea traveller from Europe.
