19 January 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Turkish shipyard B&I Yachts has offered a first look inside the 49.2-metre Provocateur (ex Ipanema) following a major exterior and interior refit. 

Work began in October 2022 and was completed last week.

Provocateur's exterior before and after

Originally designed by Hot Lab, the shipyard has repainted Provocateur's cherry-red exterior a shade of grey. Her interiors (also designed by Hot Lab) have been revised by Ozge Van to match this new, contemporary concept.

Accommodation is for 12 guests comprising a main deck owner's suite, VIP cabin, a double and two twins plus two Pullman berths. All cabins feature entertainment centres and en suite bathroom facilities. Post-refit, Provocateur's interior aesthetic is minimalist and monochromatic, incorporating integrated lighting, light woods and contemporary-style furniture. 

Provocateur features new bars and teak tables crafted in house

Elsewhere, Provocateur 's stern platform is now structurally independent from the garage, which has been converted into a beach club with a sauna. B&I Yachts has also installed a 15-tonne Jacuzzi onboard, as well as new RGB lights for her nameplate. Even her rescue boat has been reworked and now features a hydraulic sunbed.

Power comes from a pair of 2,185hp MTU 16V2000 M84 engines for a fast cruising speed of 17 knots. When trimmed back to 12 knots, Provocateur has a cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles.
