The sale of the yacht to a discerning customer, who had a clear idea of what he expected from his new boat, was announced at Monaco Yacht Show 2022

The yard has now finished the steel hull construction and started the outfitting stage.  

The exterior and interior look of the yacht was crafted by De Basto Designs studio. In fact, the future owner of the first Amer Steel 41m Explorer came from Luiz de Basto, the studio’s founder.

According to the designer, when they were drawing up the new yacht together, they relied on the customer's previous ownership experience with the 46.5-metre Far Far Away yacht, built by Inace. The vessels do have similar features like the superstructure brought forward or a massive bow section that is capable of accommodating two 8-metre tenders and water toys. Besides, the robust steel hull and reliable propulsion are must-haves for an expedition vessel, capable of long voyages. 

They made a decision to do without a beach club on the new explorer, to have a helipad on the foredeck and make the flybridge as spacious as possible, offering generous areas for al fresco dinners and relaxation. There are someextra open areas in the aft sections, too. 

As for the exterior, according to de Basto, he tried to get away from the traditional explorer’s brutality and offer something more elegant: when you look at the Amer Steel 41m Explorer, her superyacht appearance does not reveal the expedition nature of the boat at once.

The shipyard describes the form of the hull as “innovative” and says that together with advanced propulsion systems of quad 700 hp Volvo Penta D 13 engines, they will manage to reduce both fuel consumption and harmful emissions, as well as ensure comfort and silence on board. The project’s naval architecture and engineering were developed by Italian Optima Design.

The yacht with a beam of 9.75 m will have five cabins for 10 guests and separate quarters for a crew of eight. According to de Basto, the interiors will be clean and elegant and feature natural marterials and contrasting textures. 

Based on the preliminary data, the Amer Steel 41m Explorer will have a range of about 4500 nautical miles at 11 knots and a top speed of 15 knots. If everything goes on plan, the delivery to the owner will take place in 2025.
