Turkish yard Tansu Yachts specialises in the design and build of custom yachts and is led by yacht designer Riza Tansu, who trained as an industrial designer. Tansu Yachts are easily recognisable for their spartan, often militaristic exterior styling that puts a focus on function with vast outdoor deck spaces.
History of Tansu Yachts
Tansu Yachts have been building yachts since 1996 and have delivered 12 superyachts to date. The builder’s production is purposefully small, with only one or two boats built at a time, allowing the yard to focus on quality. Tansu Yachts’ Istanbul offices are home to six industrial designers, but the yacht builder has had a long-standing relationship with naval architect Diana Yacht Design.
