85' Aegean Yacht Explorer M26 2024

$ 6,017,250

Having launched the first unit of this new line of explorer yachts in 2022, hull #2 of this genuine 6 cabins world cruiser is available with short delivery time from experienced yacht builder, Aegean Yacht.


Designed and developed entirely inhouse by the Aegean team, this go everywhere, genuine world cruiser has a steel hull with aluminum superstructure ensuring a stable ride and excellent handling while at sea.


The intelligently designed general arrangement and generous interior volumes, particularly for a yacht of her length, has allowed for up to 6 guest cabins including 3 full-beam master suites, catering to 12 guests. The standard configuration includes three almost identically sized “owner cabins” – ideal for use in charter – a VIP double as well as two twin berthed cabins, all with ensuite facilities. An alternative layout allows for a generous sky lounge – replacing the bridge deck master state room - but reduces capacity to 10 guests, more than enough for the majority of yacht owners of vessels of this size.


The main deck saloon is light and airy thanks to large windows on all sides and offers comfortable dining for guests. The combination of warm oak furniture and parquet floors with stainless steel accents and white lacquered ceilings ensures her interior is warm and elegant, yet understated.


Forward of the saloon on the port side is a large galley, including crew mess as well as a crew staircase to the lower deck, another clever feature which allows for crew to seamlessly pass around the yacht to deliver the 6 star service required.


Outside areas are equally generous with multiple separate areas for guests to enjoy, including on the bridge deck forward, aft of the sky lounge / mast cabin, on the main deck, aft of the main saloon, and the large swimming platform.


Powered by two MAN 650 HP engines, she achieves a maximum speed of almost 13 kts, with cruising speed at 11kts. A range of over 3,500 nautical miles, huge storage areas together with separate, individual cabins for the 4 crew, makes her an ideal vessel for long stays and journeys to remote and unique destinations.
