A brand new Explorer 50 Pilot House motor yacht has undergone successful sea trials before being shipped to new owners in Australia.
CEO Mark Campion says this boat is fitted with two Cummins turbo diesels rated to 480hp. The semi-planing hull achieved an expected top speed of 19 knots, with half water and half fuel load.
The boat features a range of custom features specified by the owner, including the Cummins Inboard Joystick control system.
This new cruiser combines the luxuries of hand-crafted timbers and leather lounges with the benefits of a raised pilothouse for open waters navigation.
From the teak decking of the aft cockpit to the extended flybridge and a saloon fitted out with luxury leather lounge and teak dinette, the Explorer 50 exudes both style and practicality.
Below decks, two large staterooms, each with en-suite bathroom, provide comfortable accommodation.
The timber-lined saloon offers lounge and dinette aft with a fully equipped galley immediately forward. The galley is well equipped with a four-burner electric hob, underbench convection microwave oven, a combination fridge/freezer and twin stainless steel sinks. Storage is both under the Staron benchtop and overhead.
Three steps up from the saloon and galley, the expansive pilothouse is both functional and comfortable; superbly equipped both for the skipper and guests. A premium central helm seat faces a hand-crafted timber wheel and a comprehensive array of marine electronics and navigation aids.
A teak staircase on the starboard side of the pilothouse leads to the accommodation suite.
