Dutch builder Holterman Yachts is introducing a new line of six expedition yachts called the X-treme series. They will range from 62’ (19 m) to 105’ (32 m) and will include Sport and Flying Bridge versions in the 78’ (24 m) model. The 90’ and 78’ yachts are still in development. The yard says they will have “extreme capabilities” including a top speed near 30 knots.
Holterman was founded in 1964 and has traditionally built cruising boats. The new X-treme series will make its debut with the 105’ (32 m) expedition yacht designed by Bernd Weel Design and Diana Yacht Design of the Netherlands. The yard spent the last two years building Hull No. 1. A 54’ (16.5 m) version is scheduled for delivery at the end of 2021.
The company says it wants to target the Mediterranean, Northern European countries like Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Scandinavia as well as the United States and Great Britain. It hopes to attend international yacht shows in Cannes, France and Monaco and then exhibit possibly at the Miami or Fort Lauderdale shows in the U.S.
While the X-treme 105 was two years in build, the yard spent five total years developing the line. The flagship is all aluminum with a large salon and galley and a raised helm station. The salon opens to an aft deck that has a wet-launch system for a tender up to 33’ (10 m) long and there’s an amidships garage with fold-out doors on each side. The yacht also has a 16.4’ (5 m) swimming pool with adjustable depth. The owner’s stateroom is on the main deck and has an en suite. Below, accommodations include four guest cabins plus crew quarters.
Propulsion is twin jet drives and noteworthy mechanical equipment includes thrusters, stabilizers and water makers.
