EXPLORA is an exceptional yacht that boasts a rich pedigree.

The main salon is accessible through double doors and is designed with an upright piano, an L-shaped sofa and two upholstered armchairs. The Hamptons beach house-style interior, designed by Pembroke & Ives, adds to the vessel’s unique appeal and creates a chic and relaxed ambiance.

Forward, the main dining salon features an impressive mahogany table set athwartships, with clever electrically controlled opaque panels and sliding doors that can provide privacy if needed. The skylounge can be accessed through a staircase from the foyer. The curved glass sliding door opens to the boat deck, where the yacht’s tenders, Jet Skis, gym equipment and water toys are stored. The sundeck is accessible via a staircase to starboard and is equipped with a Jacuzzi, seating/dining tables, a barbecue and lounge chairs.

The master stateroom is located on the main deck and features high-gloss mahogany and a white-panel ceiling that creates a welcoming ambiance.
