EXPEDITION YACHT REDEFINED
Born in the celestial sky and descended down to Earth, Esquel's journey transcends time and space. Esquel is a meteorite found near Esquel, a Patagonian town. Esquel is the perfect composite of solid metal and translucent crystals, an alluring combination found in a rare destination.
Esquel is a state-of-the-art 105-meter (345ft) diesel electric expedition motoryacht. Sporting a displacement hull with a plumb bow, she has been designed for extensive cruising to remote regions extending from the North Pole to the South Pole and everywhere in between. At the same time, she offers all the amenities of a renowned Oceanco.
At home in Antarctica and equally at home in the Mediterranean, Esquel offers the best of both worlds — a perfect blend between an expedition vessel and a sophisticated superyacht. If you are going to take to the high seas in any hemisphere, Esquel will be your home away from home.
Esquel lacks for nothing. It is as wired and plugged in as your office is in Palo Alto, London, or Hong Kong. You can follow the stock market, write emails, make phone calls, conduct conference calls, show your face at a ZOOM, FaceTime, or SKYPE video meeting — all from the comfort of your onboard office. Today people work from home. Imagine your home is Esquel.
Inspiration for Esquel was a space rocket. While Esquel will not be headed to outer space, she will be capable of journeying to remote corners of planet earth. The exterior is one single cohesive form designed to embody simplicity and strength. The curves and shapes flow together in unison. While her lines are stately and chic, she is clearly a no nonsense high-tech go- anywhere vessel that would be equally comfortable in the Med or in the Arctic Circle.
"The exterior design works seamlessly with the interior design. We wanted there to be a maximum amount of exterior views from the interior so we have incorporated large windows and skylights.” - Timur Bozca.
Packed with advanced technology, features and assets, Esquel represents a new revolutionary type of multi-purpose super yacht. The perfect rare combination of pure luxury and comfort and enterprising expeditions that extend far outside your comfort zone.
Esquel starts where others stop. Taking you to remote and rare destinations where you’ll find that it’s the expedition that makes the discovery,not the discovery itself.
With her versatile layout and accommodation plan, and capabilities of world travel, Esquel can be customized to have laboratories or spaces aboard for any number of scientific experiments. For example, she can be equipped for coral aquaculture — for creating coral reef farms aboard to help restore our world’s dying reefs.
Esquel is equipped with a state- of-the-art compact diesel electric propulsion architecture; ultimate engineering to allow uncompromised and autonomous operation throughout the world.
With a top speed of 16.5 as per table and a cruising range of 7000 nautical miles Esquel has an endurance aligned to meet extensive cruising including the polar regions where her ice strengthened hull and Polar Classification will enable guests to truly realise her expedition potential.
