Measuring in a 19.16m LOA, with a 5.15m beam, the Numarine 62HT has a sportive design that respects a large amount of onboard space available to the owner, with ample open areas and brightly lit interiors.
The 62HT is drawn by Numarine's designer Can Yalman, who is responsible for the concept, lines and interiors while Umberto Tagliavini is the naval architect and Gurit was in charge of the structural engineering.
Paul Miletta, Director of Q7 Marine, said: "The boat is vacuum infused and the quietness is unbelievable, we are cruising with 67dba at the helm. The space for a 62 is like that of a 70 footer. We've managed to get everything on one level and we have full standing height in the engine room.”
It has a large cockpit, wide walkaround decks, and a sunken bow seating area. The three guest cabins, well fitted out with plenty of storage space, each have their own bathroom. The full-beam owner’s suite, with its big picture windows at water level, fills the cabin full of light and the sea view it.
Throughout Numarine 62HT, there is the ability to let fresh air circulate through the boat by flipping open hatches in the windows or by electrically lowering the forward side windows in the main saloon. Abundant use of glazing enlarges the interior/exterior perception — the windscreen is one piece and weighs 320kg.
Omer Malaz, Founder and CEO of Numarine, stated: “The 62HT is probably the best model to introduce Numarine to Australia as it carries all of the Numarine DNA – innovative exterior design, enormous amount of exterior light in the interiors, seaworthy performance and the quietest and most comfortable interior in its category. We are proud of this new model expect great results in Australia!”
The décor of the interior relies heavily on the use of glass, leather and stainless steel to give it a contemporary feel. The more traditional amidship’s galley in the saloon delivers a return to the aft lounging area, offering comfort. It is opposite to the entertainment hub and alongside the rear opening saloon doors.
Numarine 62HT can go up to 35 knots using IPS 1200s, with the IPS 950 base engines giving 30.8 knots, and 900hp D13 Volvos with shafts are listed as an option.
Volvo IPS system offers also a 30 per cent reduction in fuel consumption, 30 per cent less CO2 emissions, 50 per cent lower perceived noise level, 40 per cent longer cruising range and 20 per cent higher top-speed.
Can Yalman, Designer from Numarine, said: “With the 62HT I continued the evolution of Numarine’s signature silhouette, emphasising taught muscular lines in a sleek profile that incorporates extensive glazing for maximum transparency with surprisingly generous interior volumes found usually on larger boats – this is the latest baby Numarine but with all the features of its larger Numarine siblings. It is one of my favorites!"
