Oceanstyle by Burgess sells superyacht Turquoise with Fraser Yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Turquoise was delivered by Turkey’s Proteksan-Turquoise yard in 2011. With naval architecture and styling by Dubois, this steel and aluminium superyacht offers the ultimate in cruising comfort for up to 12 guests. Her cool and classically modern interior is by HOK Design, and features a spectacular full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck, along with an equally opulent VIP stateroom.
Four roomy en suite guest cabins, three doubles and a twin, are arranged around a central staircase and lobby. All staterooms are en suite. Her exterior combines a purposeful sheer and business-like vertical windscreen with a long, elegant, seagoing bow. With two 1,500hp Caterpillar engines, she has a maximum speed of 17 knots and a 3,500-mile range at 14 knots giving her a transoceanic capability.
The yacht’s spacious saloon and 12 seat formal dining table on the main deck are served by a professionally appointed galley and pantry on the port side. Upstairs, a relaxing private upper saloon comes complete with its own pantry - not to mention a baby grand piano - and leads out onto a secluded, alfresco dining area. A finalist at the 2012 World Superyacht Awards, Turquoise was featured in the 25th anniversary Superyachts book.
Lloyds classed and MCA coded, Turquoise was asking $28.5 million.
