Explorer unveils new lines including a passage-maker HONG KONG – Cruising motoryacht builder Explorer Motor Yachts has announced development of two new lines to expand its range of flybridge and pilot house cruisers.
The Odyssey line comprise passage-maker cruisers and the Hudson Bay line is made up of classic-style single-level sports yachts.
Describing the Odyssey line, Explorer Motor Yachts CEO Mark Campion said: “Everything I learned from many years of offshore sailing has gone into these boats.
“I was fortunate to learn from some of the great ‘old sea dogs’ who are not around any more and I have rolled that skill and knowledge into the design and construction of the Odyssey boats.”
Explorer has announced two models in the Odyssey line, a 52 and a 62-footer.
Campion said the boats have been designed and developed to take on the world oceans, carrying owners and friends across thousands of blue water miles in style and safety.
“They combine rugged construction with the highest levels of luxury on board,” he said. “We have also included elements that all offshore skippers and navigators will appreciate. The dedicated pilot house combines comfort and control. We have a dedicated and fully equipped chart table on each boat. I would never go to sea without a full set of paper charts, even though the boats are equipped with the very latest of electronic navigation aids.”
Moulds for two Odyssey passage-makers are complete at the company’s yard, with the hull of an Odyssey 62 already out of the mould.
The Hudson Bay line combines the classic look of traditional Explorer flybridge models with a single-level entertainer sports yacht layout and functionality The first in this line is a Hudson Bay 50 model with two boats already delivered.
The Hudson Bay 50 is offered with either a three or two cabin layout, each with a full-beam master stateroom amidships.
