The Explorer line is a series of longe range motoryachts. They belong to one of the latest additions to our range, and embody a style that is classic, timeless yet quite distinctive. We took special care to ensure the best possible sailing and seakeeping qualities for this design, including an original round-bilged hull.

Our Explorer yachts are built to endure the toughest weather conditions, and are specifically designed with a large fuel capacity, enabling them to make transatlantic passages. They are mainly built in a full displacement version with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, but are also available as full aluminium fast-displacement vessels.

From the boards of Guido de Groot, the Explorer is a masculine long range yacht design that performs as well as she looks. Her styling manages to be both classic and timeless while offering a fresh and innovative take on the explorer look.


The Explorer was originally devised in a round-bilged, full displacement design. You also have the option to create an aluminium fast displacement version, offering rugged looks and a cool turn of speed!


The Explorer is available in steel and aluminium versions, with teak decks and sturdy stainless steel features.
