Tommaso Spadolini unveiled the concept The Explorer 49.5

the 50m explorer yacht is under 500 GT, has a retractable swimming pool, and has three galleys. On the foredeck is a touch-and-go helipad.

“It was a specific request,” Tommaso Spadolini continues. “We therefore opted for the presence of umbrellas and sunbeds that can be removed as required. A perfect example of this, is the ‘furnishable’ helipad area, which makes full use of the space provided by the hull design at the bow, which widens in its upper section, to comply with the touch & go parameters.”

“On the main deck is another of the special features of the Explorer 49.5, which we could almost call a yacht with… three galleys. In addition to the open galley on the flybridge and the professional main galley on the lower deck, we have created a private galley on the main deck for the owner and his guests. We’ve also done a lot of work on the food rack, which runs from the lower deck to the flybridge, creating a worktop surface no less than 1 metre by 60 centimetres in size.”

The lower deck contains the tender garage, one VIP cabin, and three guest cabins. Moreover, there is also the crew area with the crew mess, four double cabins, and the laundry. The captain’s cabin is behind the wheelhouse.

“We also designed a second service tender, because one of the owner’s requests was that the side-opening aft garage should be able to accommodate a tender of at least six metres, in aluminium, with a bow that can be opened to bring ashore the motocross bikes and the quad that will be on board,” says Spadolini. “A rescue boat will be positioned at the bow.”
