Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche has confirmed that a Flexplorer 142 has been sold to a German owner, who has previously owned several sailing and motor yachts.
“The sale of the Flexplorer 142, named Maverick, is a milestone because it demonstrates the strength of our new propositions,” says Sales Director Vasco Buonpensiere.
“When we first introduced our concept of flexible explorer yachts, we knew it would meet the taste of yacht owners eager to purchase a yacht that allowed them to sail far and wide. A yacht with a high degree of flexibility to adapt herself to different situations, able to carry big tenders and all equipment to venture safely to remote destinations yet comfortable and with all amenities of a true luxury yacht.”
“Thanks to the excellent relationship with the owner and his feedback, in spite of the present circumstances, details such as layout, general styling, power, size, special features and delivery date have already been defined,” Buonpensiere maintains.
The Hydro Tec exterior design will be completed with interiors by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini.
Maverick features an asymmetrical layout on the main deck, with a full-beam configuration to starboard that adds square metres to the saloon while leaving a useful passageway to port side.
The owner and his family plan to explore many destinations around the Med, after which they will be heading to the northern latitudes to cross the Northwest Passage.
The Flexplorer 142 hull will feature – among other technical upgrades – an ice-belt of 22-millimetre steel plates 400 millimetres above and below the waterline.
The Flexplorer 142 features collapsible bulwarks that extend to the farthest end of the cockpit as all deck fittings have been positioned at a lower level on the swim platform. Once the bulwarks are folded down, the whole aft deck becomes a vast beach area that covers more than 135 square metres.
There is an infinity pool in the transom. When covered, it becomes a storage for the deck furniture and water toys while under way.
On the upper deck forward, a large open area hosts rescue boat and jet skis; at anchor, this area is furnished with loose sofas and sun beds, becoming a further enjoyable lounging area.
Guest accommodations are spread over three decks, with four ensuite cabins on the lower deck; one owner’s stateroom on the main deck forward; and one owner’s stateroom on the upper deck next to a single guest cabin. On this deck, a large walk-in wardrobe replaces the radio room.
The Flexplorer 142 will be able to cruise 5,000 nautical miles thanks to twin MTU 10V2000M72, 900kW each, and a fuel capacity of 60,000 litres. Max speed will be 14 knots.
