Circa Marine, one of New Zealand’s most respected builders of large alloy powerboats, is well under with a new 24m Expedition Motor Yacht.

Due to be launched in late 2020, the 24.0m vessel’s layout and above deck structures have been very much influenced by its Australian owners. With plans for serious world cruising, the owners were adamant that every aspect of the boat should suit its cruising applications. Circa Marine say that they are keen to work closely with clients to achieve a level of customisation that suits both in the engineering aspects as well as the comfort and finish levels.

Working in collaboration with naval architects, LOMOcean, the 24m Expedition Motor Yacht is being powered with a pair of 250hp Scania DIO9070M, through ZF gearboxes. Top speed is 13 knots fully loaded with a cruising speed of 11 knots @ 50% engine load. All up displacement is estimated to be around 67 tonnes. Fuel consumption is expected to be 33 lph @ 15% at 11 knots, at half load displacement.  Range predictions are 5000nm at 9 knots. She will carry 11,000 litres of fuel, 7400 litres of fresh water, with a 600 litres waste water capacity.

The layout features an enclosed flybridge, two cabin accommodation and huge main saloon with galley and lounge areas. Peter Barnard, Marketing Development Manager for Circa Marine says the internal layouts are very much customer driven and while the owner of boat #1 opted for two very large cabins and a single upper helm station, they can do just about anything that fits within the parameters of the design.

Look for a full review on the 24m Circa Expedition Motor Yacht in a future issue of Pacific PowerBoat magazine.
