Award-winning Turkish shipyard Numarine was founded in pursuit of perfection.
Experienced and passionate yachtsman Ömer Malaz grew up at sea to a family of yacht owners. But for young Ömer, there was always something missing from this experience.
“I was always wanting more,” he recalls. “Our needs were never fully satisfied. Could we go where we wanted, when we wanted? Did we have everything we needed for extended time on board? Was my family safe and comfortable? The answer was always not quite.”
The entrepreneur set out to build motor yachts with unrivaled performance and ultimate comfort. And thus, Numarine was born. Established in 2005, the shipyard has become a leading manufacturer of high-performance yachts, carving out a niche in the explorer yacht world.
Designed to stand out in a saturated market, Ömer knew his yachts needed to be of the highest quality. He also wanted his builds to be economical, delivering the best yachts at the best possible price.
Numarine’s core deliverables were high performance and efficiency, and long-range. The result of these considerations was the XP range of explorer yachts. Highly customizable, the series is available in six models: the 72’ (22m) 22XP, the 78’ (26m) 26XP, the 86’ (30m) 30XP, the 95’ (32m) 32XP, the 115’ (37m) 37XP and the 145’ (45m) 45XP.
“The idea is to create a line of yachts that speak the same language but are distinct and carry the design lines in a specific way that is unmistakably Numarine,” says Can Yalman, yacht designer and long-time collaborator. Working alongside naval architect Umberto Tagliavini — another long-time collaborator of the shipyard — the result is a timeless profile that is instantly recognizable.
The XP range is outfitted with an abundance of amenities and convenience features as standard. They’re also incredibly smooth rides, and quieter than most, thanks to an innovative soundproofing and vibration reduction system providing exceptional acoustic comfort and quietness — allowing you to engage your senses on the sea, not your engine. Thanks to a commitment to innovation, the XP range can also take you further, with impressive range and speed capabilities. All Numarine yachts are equipped with the latest navigation and communication systems and state-of-the-art entertainment systems. The shipyard’s focus on innovation and technology ensures that its yachts remain at the forefront of the yachting industry — including the best warranty in the industry, with a 10-year warranty coming as standard.
Numarine’s ever-expanding facility is based in Gebze, Türkiye. Purpose-built and environmentally friendly, the yard produces up to 20 luxury motor yachts yearly. As a boutique shipyard, this allows Ömer and his team of master designers, expert craftsmen and leading naval architects to maintain a close relationship with clients.
“We are not one of the biggest yards in the world, and we do not wish to be,” said Ömer in an interview with Boat International. “This size is exactly what we want as we can still give special care and attention to every one of our clients. And I believe that it is because we care so much that Numarine is such a success.”
Offering exceptional customer service and a dedication to excellence, it is no wonder that today, Numarine is Türkiye’s first international brand awarded the Turquality label awarded by the Turkish government’s Ministry of Economy. It is recognized globally as among the world’s most ambitious explorer brands and often enjoys repeat customers — including Ömer himself. Numarine is consistently recognized by leading brands within the yachting industry and has taken home honors at the World Superyacht Awards and the International Yacht & Aviation Awards.
The shipyard — a 35 thousand square meter climate-controlled facility — is home to in-house production workshops in glass, cabinetry, upholstering and metal. This allows for consistently high quality, ensuring a perfect fit and the possibility of a high level of customization on all models at a favorable price for the client.
Not satisfied with the status quo, however, Numarine has spent years in research and design. Owners want to go farther for longer while minimizing its environmental impact. Lithium-ion batteries contribute to this, with a Silent Package reducing noise pollution. With low discharge rates and efficient energy storage, owners can dedicate themselves to the adventure and discovery of secluded and breathtaking destinations — without frequent stops to refuel and in total tranquility.
Numarine was also one of the first shipyards to adopt vacuum infusion technology in the production of yachts. This advanced manufacturing technique allows for the creation of lighter, stronger and more durable yachts while reducing waste during the production process.
In 2022, Northrop & Johnson was appointed Numarine’s exclusive partner, handling all the sales of its superyachts within all European Economic Area countries, including Switzerland.
“The Numarine range offers exceptional value for money with innovative design features and impressive build quality. Northrop & Johnson is proud to have been awarded the exclusive sales representation in Europe, and I’m confident our unparalleled marketing abilities and experienced sales team will result in a formidable and mutually successful partnership,” says Patrick Coote, Northrop & Johnson’s managing director in Europe.
