12 July 2018 • Written by Miranda Blazeby

Turkish yard Esenyacht has revealed its sailing superyacht Project Troy has entered the final stages of construction.

The 47 metre superyacht has been moved to a larger shed where she will stay until her “imminent launch”.

Photos released by the yard show the steel hull of the superyacht being transported to a new hangar where top coat painting, glazing and decoration will take place.

The yard will also complete the teak decking, mast, rigging and keel bulb fitting before undertaking a final internal fit out and interior decoration.

Project Troy was designed by Tim Saunders with naval architecture by Dykstra Naval Architects. She has an overall length of 47.25 metres which extends to 50.25 metres with the bowsprit. She will accommodate 12 guests and nine crew members while interior materials will comprise Italian leathers and marble.

Esenyacht chief operations officer Deniz Can said: “It is very rewarding to see Troy completing the final stages of this turn-key superyacht project. It will be a great pleasure to see Troy begin cruising the oceans.”

Designer Tim Saunders added: “I am delighted to see Troy take shape and to finally see her iconic, dynamic and elegant lines under the blue sky.”

The project’s completion has been a long time coming with Esenyacht first releasing images of Troy in November 2013. Following delays, construction restarted on the yacht in 2018 and the yard said her launch is now “imminent”.
