Originally the explorer yachts were mainly aluminium built vessels, similar to commercial fishing boat. They were neither characterised by outstanding luxury features and neither the main desire in the clients’ minds.

Approximately fifteen years ago, the concept of mini-explorer yachts was introduced in the yachting market. This new category was characterised by smaller dimensions, but still trying to maintain the technological and functional features.

Some of the most outstanding and pleasing just launched versions are not only featured by ocean-running hulls, but are also aesthetically beautiful with great artistic interior, open sterns, and stylish profiles.

For great exploration, comfort and full practicality, do not miss the chance to jump on board.


The new Magellano 25 is a charming new jewel that gives the chance to new Owners to experience the perfect combination between full practicality and comfort with advanced technological features for exploration. Considered a masterpiece that seamlessly fuses art and the sea, her interior lines are designed by Vincenzo De Cotiis, an architect, designer, and one of the world’s foremost exponents of collectible art.

The exteriors of the Magellano 25 Metri have been designed by Ken Freivokh, a renowned figure in the world of boat design and the name behind some of the world’s most stunning mega-sailers. This new launch model is characterised by a superstructure entirely built in glass, with the idea in mind to create a sort of a penthouse overlooking the sea.

Slatted teak panels on either side of the aft area of the deckhouse add an indefinable personality to the boat’s profile and shape. The vast windows, combined with great prospective depth, offer great amount of natural light that floods the interiors, creating a joyous, uplifting environment.


Numarine 32XP is a perfect example of a compact explorer yacht. While being just under the limit of 300 GT category, she offers incredible volumes of internal living spaces on board, with her steel hull and GRP superstructure allowed to create unique layouts internally and customised external spaces. 

Her stylish interior is designed by the Italian design firm Hot Lab, characterised by an open salon with oak floors, loose furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows. The master suite on the upper deck, VIP cabin on the main and four suites on the lower deck are also uncharacteristically elegant and luxurious for an explorer. 

Balancing size and capability, Numarine’s 32XP is perfect for an owner looking for a compact explorer that can go the distance.  


The 27E model built by Ocean Alexander is a real masterpiece with exceptional performance, undeniable comfort and endless freedom. It is the first of its kind in the much-anticipated new Explorer Series.

Innovative design, world-class engineering, and great space for toys are just some of the top qualities that make this vessel a one of a kind. Dreamed-of destinations are achievable with cruising ranges of up to 2,100 nautical miles, ensuring guests to cruise in total safety and comfort.

The interiors are thoughtfully designed for long stays on board, featured by impressive and luxurious finishes, phenomenal views. With many options for complete entertainment, such as her comfortable seating areas, a wet bar, a custom-made grill and a jacuzzi, the 27E is an ideal craft for socialising and having fun with family and friends. 

While designing this model the goal was to maximise interior space while incorporating open layouts and expansive windows.
