Tansu Yachts signs order for new 43 metre superyacht

Tansu Yachts in Istanbul has signed a new order for a 43 metre superyacht.

The project, code-named Cyclone, is the biggest so far at the Turkish yard and has come from a direct approach from an experienced client during the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

The Italian client, who owns a 39 metre superyacht, met with yard owner and designer Riza Tansu on board the 37.9 metre SoMar, which was designed by Tansu and on display at the Monaco event. The client ended up signing the contract just weeks later on October 27.

Tansu tells Boat International, ‘We are very excited about the order. It is the biggest boat we have signed. The next stage is we start with the naval architecture studies, with Diana Yacht Design, who we have worked with successfully previously. We are planning to start construction in one to two months.’

While the LOA is 43 metres exactly, the beam is still being finalized but Tansu says it will be around 8.4 metres. The client has specified a speed of 18 knots and power will come from twin CAT 32s.

‘It will carry the same DNA as our previous boats, form will follow function, and in that way it will be a very typical boat for Tansu, but it will be the first 43 metre boat that we’ve signed. It will be a great project.’

One intriguing feature of the interior will be a library, boasting a ceiling height of around three metres. ‘It will be a very nice, cosy feature of the boat,’ says Tansu. The galley will be on the lower deck in the crew quarters, with three guest rooms also on the lower deck and the owner’s master suite on the upper deck. ‘There will be plenty of exterior deck space as a well-known Tansu feature,’ Tansu says.

Previous Tansu builds SoMar and Only Now were constructed in wood composite, however, the build material of the 43 metre is yet to be decided.

Tansu would not be drawn on a completion date but says things are progressing well in the early stages of the project.
