Turquoise Yachts Begins Construction on Vallicelli-Designed 75 Metre Superyacht
by Miranda Blazeby
The Turkish yard presented the project at the Monaco Yacht Show, revealing that it is under construction at its Kocaeli yard for a late 2021 delivery.
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the yacht’s exterior design by A Vallicelli Yacht Design features “simple sleek lines” and a “powerful dynamic look”.
A statement from the yard said: “With a profile more reminiscent of sporty sailing, the low angle of the transom slope and the very long forward overhang, make this 75m yacht appear long, slender, and elegant despite her interior volume.”
The 1680GT interior meanwhile has been designed by H2 Yacht Design.
Key features include a full 14.2 metre beam beach club, which opens aft to the swimming pool and has platforms to the sea on both the port and starboard sides.
The central tender garage can accommodate a 9.6 metre limousine tender as well a guest tender, rescue/ crew tender and multiple Jet Skis. Elsewhere, the yacht features a sky lounge gym on the sun deck, which features 360 degree views.
The upper deck touch and go helipad is accessible from the owner’s private exterior area, which features an outdoor dining area and a Jacuzzi.
Accommodation is for 12 guests including the owner’s suite and five guest suites. The crew accommodation meanwhile consists of one captain’s cabin, 10 double crew cabins and one convertible hospital/ massage cabin.
Power will come from twin Caterpillar 3516C engines for a top speed of 17 knots.
