Enjoy true freedom over

three levels 

Are there no limits to your desire to explore? With the Explorer, you can enjoy the highest comfort on all the inland waterways of Europe, while remaining unrestricted by locks or bridges. Are you ready for an adventure that could take you from Berlin to the Mediterranean? Explore the world and open up exciting new perspectives on life and travel.

A generous – even more generous – split-level

The split-level construction developed by CRUISING HOME allows you outstanding comfort and quality of life over three levels. You can look forward to rooms flooded with light and panoramic views. One set of stairs leads you up to the living room, while another takes you down below. The skipper will certainly be thankful for the ergonomically designed steering position in the interior. When the sun’s out, you can enjoy a brisk, refreshing breeze – but, if the weather gods are in a more temperamental mood, the double-glazed windscreen provides all the protection you need.

A new model – developed by
yacht architect Olivier van Meer

The newly designed V-shaped bow of this luxury houseboat and pleasure craft allows her to travel more quickly, efficiently and calmly, as it cuts through the waves rather than displacing them. This means high waves are cushioned by the hull. An innovative shaft tunnel ensures that the shaft and propeller have adequate protection from contact with the bottom. The hull width, height and draught have been optimised so that the Explorer can access all the inland waterways of Europe.

Modular construction allows later adaptation

One further innovation is the modular structure, which allows adjustments to take place at any time to suit your wishes. Thus, the Explorer can be efficiently extended from 12.50 m to 14.50 m hull length, while the hull of a 15-m Explorer can be expanded to give a height above the waterline of 17 m. The inner walls can also be realigned or removed as needed, if you want to use your boat for something different from what you originally intended.
