“I bought Turquoise because I had experienced time on board the original Turquoise”, said the UK-based owner who, despite the good condition of the yacht, realised that to reach a high standard for charter required an interior restoration.
Following this, H2 Yacht Design, who carried out the interior work on sistership, Talisman Maiton, were commissioned to carry out an extensive refit on the sundeck and interior space of Turquoise last year, whilst Amico made the necessary exterior adjustments.
Turquoise has appeared on the re-sale market before; in December 2013 she was sold by Fraser Yachts after OceanStyle by Burgess introduced the buyer. Just over a year and half down the line she has an asking price of €28.95 million, which currently equates to $31.69 million (XE Converter).
As a pricing reference, data from The Superyacht Intelligence Agency shows that the average listing price for 50-60m yachts in 2015 has been €25.73 million, and the average sale price has been €20.09 million. Interestingly no yachts built by the Turkish yard have been re-sold since Turquoise back in December 2013.
