Mengi Yay Reveals In-Build Flagship Sailing Yacht L'Aquila II

Mengi Yay Reveals In-Build Flagship Sailing Yacht L'Aquila II

Turkish yard Mengi Yay has revealed its latest project, a 42.5 metre sailing yacht named L'Aquila II.

The flagship project was signed in May 2019 and sold to repeat client looking to upgrade their current 34 metre sailing yacht, also named L'Aquila. Construction is already underway with a build time of 24 months and delivery slated for 2021. Once complete, it will be the largest sailing yacht built by Mengi Yay, topping the 42 metre Gweilo.

L'Aquila II will feature a steel hull and aluminium superstructure with naval architecture and exterior design by Ginton Naval Architects. Her interiors will be penned by BTA Design.

Accommodation will be for up to 10 guests in five cabins, with a further three cabins sleeping up to six crewmembers.

Power will come from a 911hp Yanmar engine with a maximum speed of 14.6 knots and a cruising speed of 13.5 knots. The sailing yacht will have a beam of nine metres and a four metre draft.

The announcement follows the launch of Mengi Yay's 44 metre Project Virtus which hit the water at the end of July 2019.
