Holland-based Ginton Naval Architects, the designer and architect of a new 40-metre sailing yacht, has announced that the construction of the sloop has commenced in Turkey. Conforming to the RINA commercial classification code, Mengi Yay Shipyard has started work on the project under the management and supervision of Yacht-Marine Ltd.

With interior design by Guido de Groot Design, the yacht is able to accommodate 12 guests towards the aft, across six guest suites forward of the engine room, with seven crew accommodated for forward of the mast, where the crew mess and galley are also located. The main deck is home to the main salon with a dining area, a gym and a semi-open wheelhouse, with a spacious seating area situated aft along with a bar, dining table and lounge area. “Part of the aft deck can be lowered when the transom door is opened to form a big swim platform and water sports area,” explains Jaron Ginton. “Two jet ski compartments are positioned in front of this area, with side doors and dedicated cranes allowing for quick launching.” Space for two tenders and a seating area along with a pair of steering consoles is provided for on the flybridge deck.

The steel and aluminium structure will achieve a maximum speed of 14 knots and a range of 3000nm at 10 knots from its two C18 Caterpillar engines when not under sail. “The main sail will be furled into the boom and attached to an aluminium mast which tops 52-metres above the waterline,” concludes Ginton.
