The Turkish yacht builder Numarine has unveiled its latest model, the 70-foot Numarine 70 HT. The vessel shares many design cues with its older sibling, the Numarine 78 HT, but has sleeker and more aggressive exterior lines. True to the yacht’s high-performance aesthetic, its twin 1,000 hp engines are capable of propelling it to 34 knots; it has a range of 490 miles at 28 knots.
Depending upon its configuration, the 70 HT can accommodate six or eight guests in either three or four cabins, respectively. When it is equipped with only three cabins, the extra space below deck is used to house a full galley. In the four-cabin layout, the galley is integrated seamlessly into the main-deck saloon, which is decorated in light, neutral tones set against dark wood trim and is bathed in natural sunlight thanks to expansive side windows and a retractable roof. Outside and aft, a large dining area is equipped with a wet bar and sun pad, while the bow features additional seating and sunbathing areas. Numarine has already completed and delivered the first two examples of the 70 HT, which is priced from $2.8 million. Deliveries of an additional two yachts are expected before the end of summer.
