Turquoise Presents 55 Metre Superyacht Concept Amor
by Miranda Blazeby
Turkish shipyard Turquoise has presented a new 55 metre superyacht concept named Amor.
Described as an evolution of the yard’s 74 metre line, Amor features exterior design by Roman design studio A Vallicelli & Co. Naval architecture meanwhile has been undertaken in-house with Azure Naval Architects.
Key exterior details include a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, and a long series of windows along the main deck which, according to the yard, “enhance the sleek profile”.
Elsewhere, large vertical windows are found on the forward full beam which allow plentiful natural light into the owner’s apartment.
A dining area is located on the upper deck aft, which can be either open to the elements or fully enclosed by semi-circular glass sliding doors.
Two tenders of 6.5 metres and 4.5 metres can be stored forward of the main bridge. When launched, this area transforms into a seating and sunbathing area. The lower deck beach platform is accompanied by a large internal beach area with a lounge and small gym on the same level.
The 800GT interior has been designed by Hot Lab, with a number of internal layouts available.
Accommodation for 12 guests will sit inside the “very large and bright interior”, comprising the owner’s suite, VIP suite and four guest cabins. The crew quarters meanwhile consists of a captain cabin, five double crew cabins and two single crew cabins.
Power comes from a pair of CAT C32 engines for a top speed of 15 knots.
