The 45M explorer yacht EXEO boasts clean, robust, and elegant exterior lines within her widebody design principle. Due to this unique feature she houses a full beam panoramic interior lounge, a spacious owner apartment and a total of 6 luxury cabins for 12 guests. She is able to bring with her a multitude of exploration vehicles and has spaces for various watercraft, including an fully sheltered and climatized garage for a capable 6.3M tender, a foredeck for a compact MOB tender and a versatile aft deck for the varying tenders, small vehicles, and expedition equipment she requires for each voyage. 

The yacht has a 5000NM trans-Atlantic range and associated autonomy with dedicated stores and crew facilities onboard. EXEO incorporates the commercial vessel ethos, by minimizing complex integrated systems, providing spacious technical areas, and ease of crew flow onboard for reliable operations during isolated ocean passages. 

The yacht is capable to reach speeds of 14knots and comfortably cruise at 12 Knots due to her efficient, fine entry hull form. When sailing and anchoring in sensitive marine areas, she can switch to full electric sailing with its 400kwh battery pack and hybrid powering system.
