GLOBAL EXPLORER 72 M: THE VIEWS OF THE DESIGNER POINT   The new Global Explorer 72 m project we designed is the ultimate expression of the concept of Explorer, and it is the synthesis of different experiences over the years we have gained in both Mega Yacht and the Explorer fields.   The design philosophy behind this project is to create a yacht that is, as per its own name, without limitation, neither size, nor aesthetically, nor functionally. The Global Explorer is a Mega Yacht that will bring his owners to the most fashionable places in Porto Cervo or in St. Tropez, and in the most fascinating exploration in the seas of Alaska as those in Southern California or the Far East.   The project while it necessarily takes account of all the experiences had in the past and the many feed-back received from the shipyards and from the ship owners, must inevitably be developed with a some autonomous and independent features keeping the distinctive signs that have characterized other yachts designed by our office.   The language used for the external lines makes clear reference to the proportions and style typical of the great work boat, but is combined in a much softer form, no less "masculine", with strong stylistic references and proportions that are reminding the simple but fine style of our more classic Mega Yacht with great surface continuity and almost completely abandoning the use of sharp edges.   The desire to manage in an original way, but at the same time practical and rational, the coordination of the huge available spaces, both internally and externally, with the volume that they develop is surely the true great challenge of this project.   The results are again impressive in terms of absolute space whereas for the space distribution and will allow the creation of different layout solutions without changing the overall structural layout of the boat.   The first thing that strikes the Global Explorer are the dimensions of the hull, a large platform, very high on water to remain dry even in the most violent storms and to provide an adequate volume for all service areas and crew space that are exactly in the two below decks.   The crew area is so big to allow a comfortable life on board even for long periods of time as is normal for a yacht of these characteristics.   In the superstructure, which starts from the main deck for four levels upper, being one fully open, there are the living areas on the owner and guests areas plus the bridge and captain cabin.   Guests will have five double cabins and a large suite of 60 mq that is in the forward area of ??the main deck. The first deck is almost entirely dedicated to the owner. Aftward, accessible by a staircase, there is the "beach club" in front of which there is the huge hydraulic swim platform. Together they make an area of ??approximately 100 mq with bars, tables and sofas .   From a technical point of view, we are facing with a hull from large volumes, the particularly generous spangle to optimize the seaworthiness, with a considerable bow bulb and ideal to achieve high cruising speed without penalizing the low speed performance at which the best range is possible.   The hull has been designed to allow installation of two pairs of fin stabilizers positioned in the area of ??the engine room and crew quarters.   The generous size of the rudders and their profile, highly efficient even at low speed, guarantee, together with the use of a double bow thrusters and a stern thrusters, excellent maneuverability even in very restricted waters.   Sergio Cutolo Global Explorer 72m naval architect and designer
