68m AES explorer yacht Days on track for 2023 delivery

28 July 2022• Written by Katia Damborsky

A new 68 metre project called Days is currently in the final stages of construction at Istanbul-based shipyard AES Yacht.

Set for delivery in 2023, the steel and aluminium superyacht is being built in cooperation with ICE Yacht and (CCN Group Company), with interiors and exteriors by Milan-based studio Hot Lab.

Onboard highlights include a generous aft deck swimming pool with sunpads on either side. The area has been configured as the social heart of the superyacht, overlooking a swim platform and beach club that features unfolding sea terraces for a continuous connection to the water.

Across a GT of 1800, the yacht offers guest accommodation for 12 guests split between a main deck owner’s suite and auxiliary cabin, plus four cabins on the upper deck.  Meanwhile, there are crew quarters for 19.

Days has been styled inside and out by Hot Lab and the design studio describes the décor as “minimalistic with an elegant and warm feeling due to the use of refined materials”. The yard has previously announced a headroom of 2.7 metres, indicating a light and airy interior.

Elsewhere, Days makes full use of her notably broad 13 metre beam, with plenty of social spaces including a sundeck with a forward-facing relaxing area and plenty of spots for kicking back and soaking up the sun across her aft decks.

The yacht will have a range of 5000 nautical miles with a cruising speed of 14 knots and a top speed of 17 knots. Engine power comes from twin Caterpillar engines.

The construction of Days comes at a busy time for AES Yacht, as the yard expands its facilities with a new site east of Istanbul. This is where Days and two other in-build projects will be completed.

The two other projects under construction are 35 metre NB066, due for delivery in May next year, and NB067, due for delivery in May 2024.

One of the yard's other projects in build includes NB066

Outfitting of the steel and aluminium NB066 has already begun, while NB067 is set to have her steel cut before the end of September 2022.

In the past, AES has announced plans to produce a range of explorer yachts under the Ice Yachts brand, ranging from 40 to 75 metres in length.
