Project Meteor emerges from shed at Mural Yachts

Project Meteor emerges from shed at Mural Yachts

The 46.33 metre Project Meteor has been pictured leaving her shed at Turkish yard Mural Yachts.

As these new pictures show, her steel hull and aluminium superstructure were joined in December. Pending a successful fit-out, this displacement yacht should be ready to hit the water before the end of the year.

Murat Yuceulug from Mural Yachts told Boat International: "The yacht is designed for family use with charter in mind. The owner also likes to have large groups of guests on board, hence open spaces and outdoor entertainment systems were of paramount importance."

Built to RINA charter class and MCA compliant, Project Meteor was designed by the in-house Mural Yachts team, with contemporary teak and chrome detailing on the exterior and an interior in oak and sycamore veneer with teak trim. Her maximum beam of 8.95 metres allows for a total interior volume of 499GT.

Accommodation is for ten guests split between an owner’s cabin, three doubles and a twin room, while her crew quarters allow for a staff of up to nine people. A central media system by Mosaex will allow audio and films to be streamed to different areas of the yacht.

Other key features on this tri-deck motor yacht include a large superyacht sundeck, an open aft deck, and a shaded cockpit beneath. Preliminary design renderings suggest that the foredeck seating area will be fitted with a C-shaped sofa and dinette and a central companionway will provide access to the mooring area. In addition a large swim platform means there are plenty of tender storage options on board Project Meteor.

Power will come from a pair of 1,200hp Cummins KTA38-M2 diesel engines for a top speed of 16 knots. When trimmed back to 12 knots, a maximum cruising range of 4,700 nautical miles is possible thanks to a total fuel capacity of 56,000 litres.

When complete, Project Meteor will be the largest yacht built at the Turkish yard to date, easily surpassing the 28 metre Eraora, which splashed down in 2011.
