Nuvolari Lenard reveals 66m Turquoise Yachts concept NL 233

Nuvolari Lenard reveals 66m Turquoise Yachts concept NL 233

Italian design team Nuvolari Lenard have revealed their latest concept, a 66 metre superyacht called NL 233. Developed for Turquoise Yachts, this striking new design features a reverse curved bow and fluid lines that stretch all the way back to the stern.

Designer Carlo Nuvolari explained that NL 233 was borne of a desire to create a unified whole: “Beautiful buildings and automobiles are composed of integrated parts; so too should a yacht be. It is impossible to have a nicely proportioned design by separating the hull and the superstructure.”

Designed around a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, NL 233 was developed in collaboration with Azure Naval Architects. The sweeping sundeck includes a Jacuzzi and a sheltered lounge area that can be completely protected from the elements by sliding glass partitions.

Other notable features include a touch-and-go helipad and a luxurious beach club adjacent to the swim platform, which would be fitted out with a gym, hammam and massage room. Meanwhile, the capacious garage allows room for a pair of eight metre tenders as well as a jet ski, with space left over for even more water toys besides.

The 12.16 metre beam allows for a total internal volume of 1,370 gross tonnes. Accommodation is split between a full-beam master suite and four double guest cabins, while the crew quarters are designed for a total of 16 staff. No engine details have been revealed as yet, but NL 233 has been designed to achieve a maximum speed of 16 knots.

Other projects currently under development at Turquoise Yachts include NB 63, a 77 metre tri-deck displacement yacht by H2 Yacht Design.
