Explorer yacht Days in-build at new Turkish yard AES Yacht

Turkish shipyard AES Yacht is set to make a big impression on the industry with its first superyacht, the 68 metre explorer yacht Days, which is currently under construction in Istanbul and due for delivery in 2018.

This four-deck steel displacement yacht was unveiled last month at the Monaco Yacht Show. Turkish firm Endaze Marine Engineering will be taking care of the naval architecture, while the owner’s representatives are Jacques Potgieter and Iain Flockhart.

Days will be styled inside and out by Hot Lab and the design studio describes the décor as “minimalistic with an elegant and warm feeling due to the use of refined materials”.

Accommodation is for 12 guests across six cabins, including an upper deck owner’s suite with a spacious cabin forward. Crew accommodation for 18 is situated on the lower deck, with a captain’s cabin on the bridge deck.

Notable features on board Days include 2.7 metre headroom across all three decks, creating a voluminous interior of around 1,800GT. In the superyacht garage, Days can store a nine-metre custom tender and an eight-metre crew tender, while the foredeck includes a helipad.

Power comes from a pair of 2,000hp Caterpillar 3516C diesel engines for a top speed of 17 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 14 knots, Days will have a maximum range of 5,000 nautical miles, thanks to a total fuel capacity of 171,026 litres.

AES Yacht added that it plans to produce a range of explorer yachts under the Ice Yachts brand, ranging from 65 to 75 metres in length.
