3 August 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

A new shipyard called Orion Yachts, based in Yalova, Turkey, has released the first renderings of its 43-metre superyacht Orion One.

Construction on the vessel began in 2022, and the yard has said it expects to launch the steel-and-aluminium yacht in summer 2024.

Red Yacht Design is responsible for the interior and exterior design of the 480GT yacht, giving her an elegant flared bow, cascading aft decks and generous lines of glazing. Special consideration has been given to the use of al fresco areas, with key features including a foredeck sunpad area and Portuguese bridge, plus a sundeck with a unique waterfall installation that feeds water into the dip pool.

"We are delighted to share the first glimpse of our latest creation, Orion One," said Fatih Surekli from Red Yacht Design. "The exterior images of the 43-metre motor yacht encapsulate the spirit of luxury and adventure that our clients seek."

There is a total of five cabins including the owner's suite, arranged in a way that makes Orion One suitable for use as a private charter yacht.

Naval architecture on the new yacht has been completed by Alfa Marine Engineering.

Orion One will be the first vessel built under the Orion Yachts brand. The brand is the superyacht branch of Hersek Gemi
