The Turkish shipyard says the 47m motoryacht in build is on schedule to touch the water later this month. The boatbuilder is also full steam ahead with the construction of a 55m, 66m, 74m and 77m projects and with an 81m project in the pipeline.
Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts has announced that its newest 47m motoryacht is on schedule for her launch in October. She is one out of six projects currently in the making.
The 47m project, hull #NB60, was moved to the Pendik yard for completion of interior installation and outfitting as well as the topcoat paint application.
Sea trials will be completed in November and delivery is expected in the spring of 2017.
Built in steel and aluminium, the yacht is 496gt and features a 9.6m beam and 2.5m draft.
Projects in build
In addition, Turquoise has confirmed the sale of a 55m explorer yacht designed by Hoek Design Naval Architects. The project will be delivered to her owners at the end of 2018.
Commenting on the order book, Turquoise CEO Mehmet Karabeyoğlu says: “With our recent expansion of Turquoise’s facilities and our new dry dock, we are moving full steam ahead on the 55m yacht as well as our 77m, 74m and 66m projects.
“We are ready to launch the 47m in October and are in a prime position to accommodate multiple superyacht orders simultaneously,” he adds.
The Turkish boatbuilder has also announced that it has laid the keel on the new 66m yacht designed by Nuvolari Lenard.
Also under construction at the Turkish shipyard is the new 74m Barracuda. Built at the yard in Kocaeli, she is expected to be launched in 2019.
Cristian Schwarzalder, who works in sales for Turquoise Yacht, told Superyacht Business that construction of the 77m project is 50% complete and the yacht is on schedule for her launch in early 2018.
Schwarzalder also revealed to SB that a new 81m project is in the drawing board.
