Numarine debuts 60 Flybridge in Germany


The Numarine 60 Flybridge is making its world debut this week at the Jan. 17-25 Boot 2015, the Dusseldorf International Boat Show, and the builder said three have been sold.

The first of them is under construction, and Numarine said a hardtop version will follow later this year. The 18.4-meter (60.4-foot) yacht has a 5.15-meter (16.89-foot) beam and the same styling as others in the Turkish yard’s family line.

Flybridge 60 — conceived to have the highest volume in the 60-foot category — is drawn by Numarine designer Can Yalman, who is responsible for the concept, lines and interiors. Umberto Tagliavini is the naval architect and Gurit is in charge of the structural engineering.

The 60 Flybridge uses vacuum infusion composite construction to achieve light weight and strength. With a 35-knot top speed and a 28-knot cruising speed, Numarine said the use of less powerful engines will keep fuel consumption and maintenance costs down and give the 60 Flybridge a competitive price.

“With the Numarine 60 Flybridge, we are using an IPS motorization/transmissions,” Numarine owner and CEO Omer Malaz said in a statement.

“Using IPS is very important in space saving. It allows accommodation space to free up. Their smaller size frees up considerable space in the engine room, which in turn allows us to increase fuel tank capacity, notably increasing the cruising range. Now she can be considered a real long-range cruiser.”
