Frequent site visitors will certainly have noticed. When we launched our new website in September 2018, our product line featured new segmentation. The Feebe line is now divided into three different series: Luxury, Xplorer and Design. Each offers its own unique features. In the coming period, we will be sharing our thoughts on these new categories and our vision. This article provides further details about the Xplorer series.
Explorer super yachts
While persuing boat shows and talking to clients in the super yacht building market, it quickly becomes clear – super yachts of the Explorer type are popular, and their popularity will only grow in the future. But what does the Explorer label mean for a super yacht? Explorer super yachts are expedition vessels. Capable of weathering any conditions without sacrificing that luxury feel. Imagine polar expeditions with ice floating all around.
This class of yacht can be summed up in a single word: Robust. An Explorer yacht is robust. For starters, the hull is made from steel. Sometimes even ice-class. Explorer yachts offer a higher level of attention to onboard accommodation. This process involves scientists, divers, researchers, film-makers, photographers and guides. These yachts also meet further requirements to accommodate vehicles such as helicopters, inflatable boats, landing craft, tracked vehicles, submarines and large, robust tenders. Moving this equipment on and offboard requires large, powerful cranes.
Feebe Xplorer series
Whereas the Feebe Luxury series is about luxury, the Feebe Xplorer series is about robustness. Our Xplorer products are designed for top performance under any conditions. The products, including passerelles, boarding ladders, deck cranes and overhead cranes, are exceptionally strong and always built with parts that are up to the task. Custom-built for the ship on which they will be installed. The finish is a top priority on the Luxury series products. The finish on Xplorer-series boarding equipment is always matching the finish on the yacht. For these products, we focus on functionality and technology.
Naturally, our Xplorer products look stunning. Appearance is important. But technical details such as bolt connections and cylinders are visibly finished and to a lesser degree ‘concealed’ under an exquisite faired finish. Functionality and the technical and practical aspects of the equipment take centre stage in the Xplorer. The products could also be called ‘semi-commercial equipment’.
