Turkish motoryacht producer is preparing to unveil its latest model at Cannes

The new 62Fly from Turkish motoryacht producer Numarine will be making its European premiere at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

Numarine designer Can Yalman was responsible for the concept, lines and interiors of the 62ft vessel, while Umberto Tagliavini worked on the naval architecture. Gurit was in charge of the structural engineering.

The Numarine 62Fly has a foam-cored, vacuum infused structure and a particularly spacious interior. Three guest cabins, well fitted out with plenty of storage space, each have their own bathrooms and are said to be much larger than you would expect in a boat of this size. The full-beam owner’s suite, with large picture windows at water level, fills the cabin with light.

The Numarine 62Fly is also the first Numarine model to be completely illuminated with LED lighting. The company says that all future builds coming out of its facility near Istanbul will also boast this feature.

“With the 62Fly, and the upcoming 62HT, I continued the evolution of Numarine’s signature silhouette, emphasising taught muscular lines in a sleek profile that incorporates extensive glazing for maximum transparency with surprisingly generous interior volumes found usually on larger boats,” says designer Can Yalman in a statement. “This is the latest baby Numarine but with all the features of its larger Numarine siblings. It is one of my favorites.”

Two Volvo Penta IPS 950s allow for a top speed of 31kt and a cruising speed of 26kt, although the use of less powerful engines will keep fuel consumption and maintenance costs down.

IPS1200 is an option that pushes the 62Fly to a 35kt top speed and 28kt cruising speed. The shaft version is an option available on the standard price-list, now with MAN 1000 or Volvo 900. Unit 2 of the 62Fly has two MAN 1200hp engines and reaches 36.5kt of maximum speed.

Umberto Tagliavini says: “The hull design of the Numarine 62' Flybridge is derived from Omer Malaz's needs and requests for an innovative boat designed around the IPS-Volvo propulsion systems. The challenge was even more interesting considering that it was also desirable to mount an in-line transmission for the markets that are still attracted to the more traditional system.

“Sea trails confirmed the twin personality of the hull design, which garnered excellent results both with Hull N°1 (Volvo and IPS transmission) and Hull N°2 (MAN and in-line transmission). 31-32 knots were obtained with Hull N°1 and IPS, 36-37 knots with Hull N°2 and traditional transmissions, both providing excellent comfort for passengers.

"The bow's entry is very deep to better cut through the waves, however high, and these very conditions were found during the trials, confirming the foreseen performance in real sea conditions. Even the special shape of the hull strakes were designed (including CFD) to improve performance and optimize on-board comfort while eliminating spray on the wind screen.”

Founded by Omer Malaz, Numarine builds high-performance motoryachts from 62ft-105ft at a 35,000sq m of facility near Istanbul. The company has an annual build capacity of 50 units.
