Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts has announced the sale of its largest project to date - an 87 metre custom superyacht named Project Vento.
Set to launch in 2024, the yacht will become the shipyard's flagship and the largest motor yacht ever built in Turkey.
The 2,500GT design features exterior and interior styling by British studio H2 Yacht Design, which previously collaborated with the shipyard on its current flagship GO. Project Vento's naval architecture meanwhile has been handled in-house.
Project Vento is characterised by soft lines and angled grilles with the hull finished in a striking 'Tour de France' blue.
Highlights of the flagship include a drive-in tender dock, a 6.5 metre pool and a touch-and-go helipad that doubles as a basketball court when not in use. The project's crowning glory, however, is a large sundeck that houses an informal seating area, outdoor cinema set-up, a bar and fixed sunpads.
Guest accommodation is positioned on the main deck while the owner's suite is situated on a private space above. An open spiral staircase positioned in the centre of the vessel will link all decks together with a skylight bathing the space in natural light.
"This will be my ninth new build with Turquoise and we are still working with the same team of engineers and designers which guarantees a consistent level of excellence and reliability acquired over the many projects we have delivered together," said H2 founder Jonny Horsfield.
"Working on majestic projects like Vento is always rewarding: the level of planning, commitment and dedication from all parties involved is very special and with that, the grand results are even more fulfilling," said Patrik Von Sydow, chief executive of Turquoise Yachts.
The announcement follows the sale of the 79 metre Project Toro which was signed in June.
