Construction begins on new 39m Aegean Yacht Gulet

8 June 2022• Written by Olivia Michel

Bodrum-based builder Aegean Yacht has announced that construction has begun on its latest project: a 39m classic-inspired sailing yacht designed entirely in-house, with lines reminiscent of a traditional Turkish Gulet.

The motorsailer is being constructed to RINA class with a steel hull and oakwood interiors with decks made from Iroko timber. The yacht will have a draft of 3.5 metres and two aluminium masts with winches from Antal Sail and BAMAR furling systems.

The 39m Gulet has been designed entirely in-house. Above is the yard's 57m flagship, The Langley.

A beam of 8.5 metres provides spacious accommodations for up to 10 guests and six crew. Interiors are designed in a contemporary style with light woodwork and a neutral colour palette. Outdoor highlights on deck include al fresco lounges and a dining space, plus storage for two tenders forward at the bow.

Accommodation is for up to 10 guests.

When not under sail, the yacht is powered by two, IMO tier III-compliant MAN engines producing 1,200hp for a top speed of 13 knots.

The shipyard has now announced that the yacht will set sail in summer 2023, together with its other in-build project 66 metre Haila. Penned by Red Yacht Design, Haila will supersede the yard’s current flagship, The Langley, which measures 57 metres LOA and was delivered in 2009.
