This expedition trawler was designed by famous Dutch yacht designer Rene van der Velden and has a functional and tastefully designed interior by Joachim Kinder. Design guidelines were maximum safety, extreme stability and straight-forward handling. The result is a very attractive ship that combines classic lines with a sturdy and seaworthy hull shape; blending aesthetics and ergonomics with efficiency and comfort. Built with robust construction throughout, her inviting salon, open galley and comfortable cabins offer an ideal liveaboard environment for extended exploration. Her substantial beam of 20'+ helps create an overly spacious interior for a 70' yacht and encompasses about 1100 square feet. The Portuguese bridge contributes to a dry ride and ease of docking. She is remarkably equipped with modern electronic equipment and special attention was paid to the internal heating system, making long range cold region voyages most comfortable.

Hull construction is composed of exceptionally strong e-glass, which the builder states is immune to dilapidation and nearly bulletproof. It is up to 60 mm thick on the bottom and approx. 40 mm thick on the hull sides. A dry ride and increased stability are due in part to the Farmont’s bulbous bow, which is a protruding bulb at the bow of the ship just below the waterline. This design modifies the way water flows around the hull, reducing drag, and thus increasing speed, range, fuel efficiency and stability. Ships with bulbous bows generally have a 12% to 15% better fuel efficiency than similar vessels without them. The bulbous bow also increases forward buoyancy, hence reducing pitching of the ship. The moderate draft of only 5' 5" offers almost limitless access to islands, harbors and marinas.

The Builder:

World famous explorer and naval architect, Hans Farmont, has been setting international quality standards with his yachts for over 30 years. His particular specialty is building strong offshore vessels which have classic designs but incorporate the very latest in available modern technologies. 

Hans Farmont: I take yacht building very seriously. To build quality yachts professionally requires that you derive great joy from it - but you also need stamina. I don’t think in terms of trends. Good design is timeless, don’t you think? As with some of today’s four wheel drive automobiles, my explorer yachts are designed for exploration. They are known for safety, solidity, comfort, and highly functional interior space. We couldn't have said it better.
