Turquoise Yachts has started construction of a 66m motoryacht. The Turkish superyacht builder says the vessel has not been sold but it’s expected to be ready for delivery by the end of 2019. The project results from the collaboration with Italian yacht design studio Nuvolari Lenard.

Commenting on the speculative project, CEO Mehmet Karabeyoglu, says: “A client for a 60m-plus yacht is looking for the same uncompromising amenities as a client looking to purchase an 80m-plus yacht.”

The Turkish builder also says the layout of this vessel integrates the exterior styling with the interior, optimising space and minimising any conflict between functionality and the prime real estate.

“Recognising the demand for a yacht that incorporates everything, we are prepared to incorporate elegance, beauty, design experience, fun, adventure, wellness, safety and security. Optimisation is the key word,” explains Dan Lenard of Nuvolari Lenard, the Italian studio that pencilled the motoryacht.

This steel-hulled 66m motoryacht features aluminium superstructure, a 12.16m beam overall and 3.15m draft. This is a 1,370gt motoryacht capable of cruising at 16 knots, the builder claims.

Accommodation comprises a full beam owner’s suite, four double guest cabins and two VIP cabins. Crew accommodation comprises the captain cabin, eight double crew cabins and a single crew cabin.

The yacht has been designed to house two 8.5m tenders, a 6.5m crew tender and a 4.5m rescue tender alongside two water toys.

Earlier this year Turquoise Yachts released a video featuring the engineering stage of the new 66m motoryacht currently in build.
