The Numarine 78 HTS world debut at the 2019 Palm Beach International Boat Show gave a much-deserved spotlight to the newest member of Numarine’s stable. The debut yacht named “Adonis” is equipped with the ultimate smart technology and assisted by virtual concierge “Angel.” Numarine developed the 78 HTS yacht in collaboration with Furrion Numarine at the Turkish boat building shipyard which continues its impressive expansion.
Numarine, the European high-performance motor yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul with a range from 62′ – 105’, teamed-up with Furrion, a global leader of innovative products and solutions for the consumer, speciality vehicle and marine markets, to build an entirely new experience on the water.
Numarine 78HTS Furrion Edition M/Y Adonis is a luxury smart yacht – a concept that combines luxury with futuristic innovation and artificial intelligence. This yacht houses the best of Furrion’s technology, from audio-visual electronics, kitchen appliances, camera observation and monitoring.
Adonis is a grand 24-metre yacht that houses the best of Furrion’s technology, from audio and video to a full chef’s kitchen, safety, and observation. A virtual concierge “Angel” seamlessly integrates to control them all. Angel is powered by a network that knows no limits and built with intelligence that responds to your every move. It is always ready to assist in ways we once only dreamed possible.
Angel can deliver the news and weather, order food from the kitchen, control your morning playlist, and guide you through a yoga workout and so much more. Powered by artificial intelligence, it uses facial recognition to learn your personal preferences to customize your experience. Learning your preferences helps Angel suggest things you may like, whether a new activity at your destination, a new restaurant or perhaps a new outfit as it learns your sizes and recommends outfits from your favourite retailer.
Adonis features advanced technology on board and Angel seamless integrates to control them all. Through a built-in voice module smart speaker located throughout the yacht, you just speak “Hi Angel” and then give your commands. For example, you can ask Angel to play a favourite playlist through the Furrion marine speaker system in one cabin or throughout the yacht.
Onboard Adonis, there are several Furrion Smart Mirrors with an interactive display found in the master cabin and throughout the yacht. At first glance, it looks like a wall mirror, but it is so much more. Simply touch the mirror or ask Angel to display something on it to wake it up. Smart Mirror functions like a large tablet or touch screen allowing you view updates such as weather, schedules, news and social media. You can even watch television or other media on the Smart Mirror. Commands can be made via touch or asking Angel and the response will be displayed on the mirror. Smart Mirror, like Angel, works in the offline mode as well. Information is pulled and stored from the Internet so that functionality is not interrupted.
When a connection is available, the system syncs and updates automatically. The Smart Mirror aboard Adonis is the first in this ongoing project. More functionality and features will be continually added in the future. The Furrion Sense TV is an ultra-slim HDTV with a built-in soundbar. Like all Furrion TVs, Sense TV features the proprietary Vibration Smart technology ensuring a crisp, stable picture whether at port or sea. Angel can control the TV and send the content you select to the TV. Angel can control and monitor all cameras aboard Adonis and alert you when attention is required. Adding additional surveillance, Adonis features a drone and a drone port on the top deck that is controlled by angel.
ANGEL PROVIDES DRONE SURVEILLANCE
Angel can deploy the drone to provide security surveillance of the surroundings or to take photos of moments and places at the request of your voice. The Adonis drone will continually add new features and functions as this technology advances. The cockpit features the Furrion monitoring system that displays everything from navigation to equipment monitoring. Angel is able to constantly monitor and alert you to changes that need to be made either in navigation, perhaps due to weather, or alert you if something in engineering needs attention. Everything Angel is monitoring can be viewed and controlled through the Furrion touchpad smart remote.
INTERIOR AND LAYOUT
The vast saloon of the 78HTS is filled with natural light thanks to oversized glazing above and laterally. Contemporary furniture creates the ultimate entertainment space. Socializing is at the heart of the design. Inside there is a bar, large C-shaped sofa and dining area, while another lounge with a bar and oversized transformable sun pads are located aft. The galley is moved below decks, and this decision allowed freeing even more space on the main deck.
All four cabins are on the lower deck. The full beam owner’s cabin amidships features a unique design and encompasses plentiful wardrobe space, an open plan bathroom, walk-in shower, separate head and twin basins. Guest accommodation comprises of three very generously appointed ensuite cabins, each outfitted with the finest fixtures and amenities. The crew cabin is placed aft, next to the galley where they can enjoy a dinette. Numarine 78HTS is probably the quietest series-built yacht in her class today with a noise level at just 66dB in the lower deck area at cruise speed.
Outside, the emphasis has been given to relaxation space with an ingenious sun-pad configuration at the bow that provides a place in the sun for any number of guests. A forward facing ultra-wide lounge seat offers the best view aboard when cruising at speed in absolute comfort and safety.
Of course, the important addition is the sportfly, which allows guests to enjoy four large sunbeds and provides a fully equipped helm station in a privileged central position under the sun. To ensure full comfort for guests, the yacht is also fitted with teak laid hydraulic bathing platform.
The new 78HTS is usually fitted with standard twin MAN V8 1200 hp, but hull no.1 will have the more powerful twin MAN V-12 1550 hp that will allow approximately 37 knots max speed and 27knots cruise. The range is up to 400 nautical miles.
