With a 5.15m beam, the 19.16m vessel 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.

She has a foam-cored, vacuum infused structure and thanks to engineering work. The yacht’s interior is very spacious and airy, even the engine room is full standing height. The yacht also highlights its lightweight and strength due to the vacuum infusion composite construction.

Comfort and cheer were the guidelines in designing the Numarine Flybridge 62's internal layout. The three guest cabins, fitted with plenty of storage space, each have their own bathroom. The full-beam owner’s suite, with its picture windows at water level.

This is the first of the Numarine’s range of yachts to be totally illuminated using LED lighting and the designers confirmed that all future yachts coming out of the build facility outside Istanbul will be fitted with such.

Throughout Numarine 62 Flybridge, 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.

The décor of the interior relies heavily on the use of glass, leather and steel. The galley is incorporated into the main saloon and divided by a bar that is equally at home laden with a buffet lunch as serving cold ones from the fridge.

The flybridge is powered by two Volvo Penta IPS 950, which enable her to reach a top speed of 31 knots and a cruising speed of 26 knots.

Using IPS helps space saving, allowing accommodation space to free up. Their smaller size frees up considerable space in the engine room, which in turn allows us to increase fuel tank capacity, notably increasing the cruising range.

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, 20 per cent higher top-speed, and safe and predictable handling.

IPS1200 is an option that pushes the 62Fly to a 35 knots top speed and 28 knots cruise speed. The Shaft version is an option available on the standard price-list, now with MAN 1000 or Volvo 900. Unit 2 of 62Fly has 2xMAN 1200hp and reaches 36.5 knots of maximum speed.

Yalman rcommented: “With the 62Fly, and the upcoming 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!”

Tagliavini added: “The hull design of the Numarine 62 Flybridge is derived from Omer Malaz's needs and requests for an innovative boat designed around the IPS-Volvo propulsion systems. The challenge was even more interesting considering that it was also desirable to mount an in-line transmission for the markets that are still attracted to the more traditional system.

“Sea trails confirmed the twin personality of the hull design, which garnered excellent results both with Hull N°1 (Volvo and IPS transmission) and Hull N°2 (Man and in-line transmission). 31-32 knots were obtained with Hull N°1 and IPS, 36-37 knots with Hull N°2 and traditional transmissions, both providing excellent comfort for passengers. The bow's entry is very deep to better cut through the waves, however high, and these very conditions were found during the trials, confirming the foreseen performance in real sea conditions. Even the special shape of the hull strakes were designed (including CFD) to improve performance and optimise on-board comfort while eliminating spray on the wind screen.”
