Following on from the delivery of 47m Razan, which has now been sold, Turkish Shipyard Turquoise Yachts has revealed further information on the new 74m motoryacht, currently under construction at the facility and expected to be delivered at the end of 2019. But, further still, a 77m superyacht designed by H2 Yacht Design, which is also under construction at the yard, is now nearing completion and expected to hit the water in early summer 2018.
Designed by A.Vallicelli & C Yacht Design, the new 74m superyacht is well balanced in her profile, with an angular exterior. With large rectangular windows and plenty of uncovered exterior space, the new superyacht is certainly elegant in her design.
The interiors of the vessel, created by the Ken Freivokh Design team, have been described as ‘contemporary’ by the shipyard, with plenty of natural light, thanks to the large windows. There is also a central multi-deck atrium centred on a spiral staircase at the primary entrance to the yacht on the main deck.
“The design focus is on classical elegance,” says Ken Freivokh. “The idea is to achieve a layout that has complete integration between the decks and key internal spaces – with everything designed to maximise the continuity of the yacht’s lines as well as long, straight lines.”
Although the exact details of the interior styling are yet to be revealed in detail, we do know that the interiors have been designed to be bright and welcoming. Materials include veneers, marbles and granites, mirror-gloss lacquers and hand-picked leathers. The yacht also features a touch-and-go helipad on the forward upper deck, from which the private owner’s exterior area can be accessed.
Turquoise has a total of six projects under construction (source: SuperyachtIntelligence.com), all of which are scheduled for delivery between now and 2020. As a result, Turquoise Yachts currently contributes 14 per cent of the current Turkish order book.
