Explorer motor yachts or expedition yachts:
So why these boats are called explorers? A modern expression explorer yacht means that your boat can reach even the remotest destination as normally expedition boat has a sturdy construction and an extended range, the autonomy is more than 8,000 nautical miles. Expedition boats vary in length, the smallest is 17m while the largest is 107m.
Being a tough boat an explorer has a strong full displacement steel hull, reinforced to withstand the roughest weather and also ice. Big waves and strong winds are a natural environment for an explorer; your expedition boat continues to go even when waves are 10 ft and higher and wind is 50 mph while most of the luxury yachts will run for cover. Most often than not an explorer yacht will feature over-engineered hydraulic and steering systems, heavy-duty main engines able to clock many hours between scheduled maintenance.
The trend to build explorers become so popular that even the builders which do not have an explorer in their portfolio in the past joined the game. The popularity of expedition styled yachts created even a sub-niche of common luxury yachts pretend to be explorers (pseudo-explorers). As for true explorers, the recent years have seen a born of a new breed: sport fisherman/explorer crossover yacht.
