Turquoise Yachts has announced that it now has a combined capability to build ten superyachts simultaneously. The announcement follows on from two major investments the Turkish boatbuilder has completed at its shipyards in Kocaeli and Pendik near Istanbul.
Following a year of construction, the main shed at the Kocaeli shipyard has doubled in size. Measuring 165m in length, 40m in width and 29m in height, the new expanded facility can now simultaneously accommodate three superyachts with an average LOA of up to 80m each.
Additionally, Turquoise has now launched a purpose built new floating dock capable of lifting and transporting yachts of up to 2,500 tons between the two yards.
The floating dock has a central ballast tank with a removable soft patch to allow lifting keels or centre boards of large sailboats deployed freely while they are dry docked.
Turquoise Yachts says it is continually investing in and improving its facilities in order to better service the yacht market.
