Self-sufficient adventure - the success of a new breed of expedition yacht

Explorer yachts, or expedition yachts as they are sometimes called, provide the stability, safety and range that can unshackle owners from normal yachting restrictions and allow them to explore the most remote and un-spoilt cruising destinations with the most fuel efficient yachts in the world. Fitted with the very latest technology, today’s explorer yachts offer unparalleled comfort and space, inside and out, together with a reduced need for maintenance that gives owners the chance to enjoy even more time at sea. YPI Brokerage offers two of the world’s highest specification expedition models now for sale:

Built by RMK Marine Shipyard in Istanbul in 2003 and designed by Dick Boon of Vripack Yachting International, the explorer yacht JASMIN is a winning example of creative design actively increasing space and function.

With a GRT of 336, impressive for a yacht of 37-metres, JASMIN can accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 luxurious staterooms, and includes a Master Suite of approximately 45-square metres on the main deck featuring four full-height windows on either side, a king-size bed and ‘his n hers’ bathrooms.

“One special feature,” explains Will Allen, YPI Sales Broker, “is the placement of JASMIN’s four guest cabins (2x VIP cabins with queen-size beds and 2 twin-bedded guest cabins) on the upper deck, thus ensuring guests benefit from an elevated position and from having large windows rather than small port holes to enjoy the views. Similarly JASMIN features ten oversized windows in the main saloon providing amazing views during cruising or whilst at anchor.” 


JASMIN’s deck areas are particularly versatile and very well appointed.

  “Sun worshippers can relax in front of the bridge as well as on the upper deck or in the aft cockpit,” adds Will. “Dining is possible on both the upper deck and the main deck levels, whilst the aft cockpit provides easy access to the water for tender access or water sports.”

Operating under a Turkish commercial flag, JASMIN is fully LRS and MCA compliant and is an exceptionally popular charter yacht.  “Benefiting from a large fuel tank capacity, JASMIN has a range of almost 5,000 nautical miles,” explains Will, “and a very low fuel consumption of just 135 litres per hour.*” 

An attentive maintenance programme has ensured all JASMIN’s systems and equipment are in pristine condition with the yacht operating ‘vibration free’ in almost complete silence for owner and guests.

JASMIN combines sturdy, ocean-going capability with classic, elegant comfort.

“She has all the great characteristics of a much larger yacht,” concludes Will, “without any of the inconveniences.”

“She is an outstanding yacht,” says Bertrand Vogèle, YPI Group CEO. “And at her current Asking Price I would recommend any buyers serious about owning a fuel efficient, long range yacht, to take the time now to inspect JASMIN…they wont be disappointed.”

JASMIN is for sale exclusively through YPI Brokerage and has recently benefited from an important price reduction of 1.6 million euros.

JASMIN’s Asking Price is now EUR 7,800,000.

JASMIN is available for viewing now in Istanbul, Turkey. 

* At 10.5 knots with 2 engines + 1 genset running

Superyacht owners may not be as familiar with the Conrad Shipyard as they are with other yards, but rather like Poland’s renowned shipbuilding, the Conrad yard comes with a very strong track record.

“They specialise in building quality bespoke private yachts,” says her YPI Broker, Mike Rich. “On site they have some of the finest craftsmen and designers in Europe. All the joinery, steel-work and welding is carried out in-house and when it comes to yacht furniture and cabinet making their woodwork is impeccable.”

The new-build 40-metre CONRAD - VRIPACK 132 combines the award-winning draftsmanship of Vripack (also see JASMIN) and the proven Polish shipbuilding tradition exemplified by the Conrad Shipyard.

“She is a long range expedition cruiser,” explains Mike. “There is a lot of renewed interest in this type of discovery yacht today. They are a great way of properly experiencing the world beyond the usual yachting channels like the Caribbean and the Med. This design is one of the finest of its kind using a lot of the Vripack experience and flair for award-winning design.”

Accommodating up to 10 guests in 4 cabins and with a sleek and contemporary interior spec’d for pear wood and wengé with suede and white leather, the CONRAD - VRIPACK 132 has a range of over 5,000 nautical miles, is designed for easy handling and operates perfectly with a crew of just six.

Interior Conrad Vripack“Of course the new owner can add their own touch to the interior look and feel,” explains Mike. “They can bring their own designers or use the specialists that work with the yard.”

The CONRAD - VRIPACK 132 is now for sale through YPI Brokerage with completion expected 24-months from signing.
