A touch more style, the next generation of Expedition yachts, the superb 126′ aft house explorer yacht by Luiz Debasto design has the same impressive sea keeping qualities that INACE is famous for.
The Inace 126′ Aft house Explorer is the 2nd in this series of Explorer / Expedition yachts designed by Luiz de Basto, Inace Yachts and All Ocean Yachts. She has a 6000 nm range. A huge full beam master stateroom down in the center of the vessel plus 4 more very comfortable guest cabins. She can carry a 22′ tender plus extensive additional toys. She was created from the first line on paper to meet her mission profile as a world cruising yacht capable of extended time in remote areas with limited shore side sport. She has wonderful outdoor spaces with a huge fully equipped flybridge, large lounge/ dining deck behind the skylounge and a wonderful aft deck for dinning or entertaining plus a massive well protected boat deck forward and a great foredeck.
She has outstanding crews areas with service and separation in mind when they were designed. The crew can easily get to every area of the boat without intruding on the guests. Her properly sized, fully equipped engine room is laid out for ease of service and she has a large lazarrete for even more toys.
The 126′ represents an outstanding value in a world cruising Explorer Yachts.
