The 33.6 metre motor yacht project Kando is taking shaping at Turkish yard AvA Yachts. As these first in-build photos from Antalya show, the bulbous bow is structurally complete and the stern portion of the hull has been fitted.

Designed in-house by naval architect Atilla Kucukdiker, this tri-deck displacement yacht is being built to BV standards from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure ahead of a planned 2018 launch.

Accommodation is for ten guests split across five staterooms, including a main deck owner’s cabin that spans 27 square metres. Three doubles and one twin room complete the layout of the guest areas. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people.

Relaxation options on board Kando include the main deck saloon and the skylounge, both of which benefit from 48 square metres of floor space and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Moving to the upper deck and guests can choose to relax in the built-in superyacht spa pool or enjoy the shade provided by the hardtop Bimini.

The interior décor is described as modern, creative and functional, with American walnut and wenge woodwork, as well as polished stainless steel frames surrounding the sliding glass doors.

Power will come from a pair of Volvo Penta 650hp diesel engines for a top speed of 14 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots, Kando will boast a maximum range of 2,600 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 45,000 litres. Her vital statistics include a beam of 7.8 metres and a maximum draught of 2.4 metres.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Turkish yard, include the 36 metre AvA 130EY, which was recently sold.
