The first version of the Naumachos 82, a 24.5-metre exploration cruiser, caused more than a passing flurry of interest at last year's Genoa Show with its unusual lines, bright red livery and solid, professional good looks. This year the CNP Explorer Vessel yard of Pesaro was back at Genoa once again, this time with anew version with a dark blue hull and a modified layout. The underlying philosophy, however, hasn't changed: the new 82 is still a displacement vessel designed for tough long-haul voyages (it has a 7,000?mile range at nine knots, after all),exploration, under water research or even simple leisure use.

Interiors and exterior styling by Stefano Faggioni and engineering by hydrotec, the Naumachos 82 is a timeless steel hull? yacht with a bulbous bow and skeg plus a light alloy superstructure capable of coping with alacrity with the seas of any latitude. All of its windows and portholes are not only water tight but also sealed.

With a beam of 7.2 metres, carefully planned weight distribution and two stabiliser fins and an inertial platform, it is also exceptionally stable even in big swells. Another plus is that the 82 is environmentally friendly, packing a very efficient grey and black bilge water treatment set-up with separate tanks plus a quadruple filtering and decantation system. The main engine, a robust 550 hp Baudouin, is joined by a second auxiliary 165 hp which is situated in another engine room but is hydraulically coupled to the same shaft. This is an ideal solution for trawling. The controls are all touch screen too.

The Naumachos 82's interiors are classically maritime and cosy. "They are simple yet boast sophisticated details," explains Faggioni, "and they're quite the opposite of the first model's (classical wood panelling) even though we've used the same woods (oak and weng?). Everything is much more linear and only the corners (of the furnishings and bulkheads) and flush doors have a vertical aluminium Inlay. This neutral palette goes perfectly with any kind of accessories, fabrics or artwork:' Up on deck, the saloon, which faces a semi-covered cockpit with a 12-seater table, boasts three sofas, a pop-up TV and a day toilet.

Moving forward there is a very spacious galley flanked by a pantry/laundry area and the crew dinette, which can be accessed from the deck. Next are the crew quarters. A stairs leads up to the bridge which, needless to say, boasts a fabulous array of instrumentation plus an adjustable skipper's chair. The space is split by a central chart area aft of which is a sofa and a desk. The stern terrace features yet another L-shaped sofa with a coffee table, a barbecue unit with fridge, ice-maker and sink, and a tender area. Forward of the engine room and plant area on the lower deck we find the full? beam owner's stateroom with a sofa bed, vanity table, walk-in closet and bathroom.

lt is followed by two identical twins and a VIP, all en suite. The charter version, however, offers an extra cabin by splitting the owner's suite in two.
