New order for 40m superyacht signed by Ginton Naval Architects and Mengi Yay

It has been a while since we last reported a new order, so the news that Ginton Naval Architects and Mengi Yay have signed a contract to design and build a new 40m sailing yacht is very welcome.

Construction has already started at Mengi Yay's yard in Tuzla, Turkey under the supervision of Yacht Marine.

Designed by Ginton, this sloop will have a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, and will be built to RINA class and Maltese commercial classification.

The interior will be designed by Guido de Groot with six guest staterooms forward of the engine room and berths for seven crew. There will be a spacious saloon on the main deck with a dining area and a semi-open wheelhouse, while the aft deck will have a large seating area with a bar, dining table and lounging space.

When the transom door is opened, part of the aft deck can be lowered to create an expansive swim platform and watersports area. On the technical side, the mainsail will be furled into the boom and an aluminium mast towers 52 metres above the waterline. Twin Caterpillar C18 engines will deliver a speed of 14 knots when not under sail.
