Expedition 24m design now available
The Kit Carlier Design studio has launched an all new, exclusive yacht design in collaboration with Stimson Yacht Design and Naval Architecture.
The Expedition 24m is designed for long-range voyages and features a highly efficient hull, optimised for 15 knots and to combat unpredictable offshore sea states.
In true innovative style, the Expedition 24m has been designed to pair the latest technology with luxurious creature comforts.
Time was dedicated to in-house CFD analysis of the hull in both calm water and headseas to refine the form and minimize resistance, resulting in a vessel that burns as little fuel as possible for 6,000nm range at 8 knots.
The Expedition 24m also ticks the boxes as the 4×4 of the sea, flaunting chiseled lines and proportions and spaces such as a full beam master cabin and ensuite, crew quarters and tender garage, usually reserved for larger vessels.
“The specifications are designed to be robust and uncomplicated, yet to provide the comforts that many serious explorer vessels lack,” says Kit Carlier, Kit Carlier Design.
“For the discerning purchaser, the design has been created to remain under the 24m loadline rule, to minimize complexity and ensure that the build cost can be kept to a minimum, and operation can be carried out without the need for crew.”
Yet for those enthusiasts looking for the added extras, the Expedition 24m offers a range of eco options, including a commercial specified hybrid propulsion system, waste treatment systems and environmentally friendly interior materials.
For added versatility, the vessel can be built in either aluminium alloy or composite with our preferred builders in New Zealand being Circa Marine and McMullen and Wing. Both builders have undisputed experience in constructing robust, commercial vessels and their ability to provide a complete build in-house makes them an easy choice.
