Four months after entering the Port Denia refit facility, 55.4m Turquoise has rejoined the fleet with a whole new look. Built by the Turkey-based shipyard Turquoise in 2011, the 55.4m superyacht has visited a refit facility twice in the last two years.
Her exterior styling was originally designed by renowned British designers Dubois Naval Architects, working to a design brief that sought to create a purposeful looking vessel with a long and elegant seagoing bow.
Her interior was redesigned in 2011 by London’s H2 Yacht Design. The plan was to improve the use of rooms and create a more comfortable and glamorous atmosphere. The on board lifestyle was reimagined, the result was a stunning transformation, undertaken at the Amico & Co facility, which brought the yacht back to life.
The latest refit included a complete change in hull colour from white to a dark grey. Instead of using traditional paint, Turquoise received a full Wild Group vinyl wrap. The work had to be carried out quickly due to her extremely busy charter schedule, leaving little time for traditional paint work.
Prior to this colour change, the Wild Group team worked on the superstructure overhang, which had become matte through sun damage. According to Wild Group, it was the success of this initial work that led the owner and captain of Turquoise to wrap the entire hull.
The captain of Turquise commented “The results are outstanding, and the job has been completed in good time. Everyone from the crew, to the management, to the yacht owner are pleased with the way it looks, which is quite a feat I am sure those in the industry can agree!”
Turquoise is now back in full service and preparing fro yet another busy charter season.
Turquoise has recently had a central agency change and a €4 million price reduction. She is now for sale with Cecil Wright & Partners and Burgess for an asking price of €24.95 million and is also for charter with Ocean Independence, with up to a 30 per cent discount on bookings in the Caribbean from February to April.
