One of our best Explorer 46 Sedan's to leave the yard and delivered to a very knowledgeable owner featuring a custom interior with a light exotic wood, teak and holly flooring and ultra-leather fabrics.
An extremely well laid out galley with Smeg and Isotherm appliances, plenty of storage and Staron counter tops is an entertainer’s dream that would meet with the approval of any proud home cook and even most professional chefs.
The boat's exterior, too, features a range of bespoke elements.
Custom stainless steel rails and biminis were custom designed and fabricated at the yard with meticulous welding, polishing of the welds and overall hand polish finishing before being installed.
Extensive use of teak, from the custom cap rails to a custom-designed swim platform, aft deck and side decks, was all measured and cut in-house.
The custom swim platform design includes integrated swim ladders, quick-install stand-up transom shower and a low-profile ADC davit.
Options such as the Muir windlass and Italian anchor chain were also specified by the owner.
Other notable but standard features are the stainless steel saloon sliding doors, lower helm door and flybridge hatch from Aritex in Taiwan which are polished to a mirror finish.
A top-of-the-line custom lower helm chair from MarineTech that blends nicely with the dedicated helm area, well laid out instrument panel and surrounding dash covered in leather. Not forgetting the custom wheel which was painstakingly made over several weeks by old world artisan carpenters.
The smart use of Hella LED lighting throughout, coupled with VIMAR light switches and dimmers, top-line door handles and reading lights further complement the contemporary look the owner and shipyard design team wished to achieve.
The boat is powered by a pair of new series Cummins 6.7-litre QSB common-rail diesels that offers quiet operation, laudable fuel economy with increased performance.
Loaded up with fuel and water she handles perfectly and achieves a continuous fast cruise of 16 to 17 knots. At anchor she is extremely stable, unlike our previous boat - not an Explorer!
Suitable for all the family and friends alike, she is a truly modern classic, that incorporates the style and class of the proven pedigree that Explorer Motor Yachts pride themselves on. She will sleep 6 comfortably and is perfect for long distance cruising, or simply exploring coastal bays and islands.
