Turquoise Yachts

Turquoise Yachts (formerly known as Proteksan Turquoise) is a builder of custom power and sailing superyachts. The company was recently purchased by Dr. Mohammed Al Barwani, who in 2010 also bought the Dutch shipyard Oceanco. The company operates two Turkish shipyards in Pendik, Istanbul and Kocaeli.

History of Turquoise Yachts

Turkish luxury yacht builder Proteksan Turquoise was founded in 2001 by Mehmet Karabeyoglu and his late partner Hayati Kahmi in Tuzla, outside Istanbul. The shipyard’s first yachts included Turquoise (now Double Trouble), the first superyacht built in Turkey. The shipyard completed 20 additional superyachts, ranging from 40 to 72 metres, until the time of its acquisition.

Under Dr. Al Barwani, luxury yacht builder Turquoise Yachts will focus on construction of superyachts between 40 and 90 metres.
