Embarking on excellence

Numarine, the Istanbul-based shipyard, is setting sail into 2024 with a burst of momentum, making waves with a series of significant announcements. 

The shipyard, renowned for delivering a dozen yachts annually, is not taking a pause, and by the end of February, it plans to unveil three new superyachts: one 37XP and two 26XPs.

Building on the success of 2023, during which Numarine introduced the super-sporty 26XP, recognized as the fastest 85-footer in its class at 31 knots, the shipyard is strategically expanding its team.

The appointment of Murat Şen as the new General Manager brings 18 years of invaluable experience, with Şen having served in various capacities, including the role of the shipyard’s factory manager for the past eight years. Expressing his enthusiasm, Şen sees this as a great opportunity to lead the company into a successful future, leveraging his deep understanding of the company culture and its team dynamics.

Numarine is not only fortifying its operational side but is also reinforcing its commercial endeavors. Bengü Özdoğan, with a wealth of experience gained at MB92 Group, a major player in superyacht maintenance, refit, and repair, has been appointed as the Sales and Marketing Director. Her expertise in marketing, sales strategy, and partnership management, acquired from the banking and telecommunication industries, positions her to lead Numarine’s sales initiatives effectively.

Looking forward to the year ahead, Numarine has exciting plans on the horizon. The shipyard is set to unveil two new models in 2024: the diesel-hybrid 30XP and the steel-hulled 40MXP. The 30XP, introduced in September 2022, is the first Numarine to feature diesel-electric propulsion, positioned between the existing 26XP and 32XP models. Anticipation for this innovative model is already high, with five units sold ahead of its summer launch.

Designed by Can Yalman, the 30XP boasts a raised pilothouse design, inspired by a sustainable and simple Scandinavian style. The vessel accommodates up to 10 guests in five ensuite staterooms, showcasing a master suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and a fold-out balcony. Notable features include a semi-open beach club, fold-down platforms, and a side-loading tender bay. Numarine’s founder and chairman, Ömer Malaz, expresses confidence in the year ahead, building on the success of 2023. With a robust sales performance, Numarine is eager to showcase its capabilities in 2024, especially with the invaluable support of experienced individuals like Bengü and Murat.

As the shipyard continues to strengthen its position in the international yachting industry, the future looks promising for Numarine’s expedition and explorer vessels.
