Boasting an anticipated range of 7,000 nautical miles at an 11.5-knot cruise speed, the HT116 Explorer is one of the newest projects being promoted by Kingship Marine.
With exterior styling and naval architecture by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec, the 116-foot (34.5-meter) megayacht will have a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. As the model name implies, she’s intended for long-range independence. Twin Caterpillar C18 ACERT diesels will help in that regard.
Inside, an elevator connects the four guest staterooms on the lower deck with the skylounge on the upper deck. The 27-foot (8.3-meter) beam is sure to be appreciated, whether the owner is relaxing in his main-deck suite or family are taking a dip in the Jacuzzi on the upper deck. Everyone can also enjoy an alfresco dining area on the uppermost deck, the sundeck, plus a solarium. No specifics have yet been released on the interior decor, as Kingship will develop that in-house with the eventual owner.
Hydro Tec has two more designs in the works with Kingship. One is a 148-footer, while the other is an 87-footer, with both being part of the Explorer series. Scale models of each, plus the HT116 Explorer, will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show.
