Turqouise sign contract for 55m explorer yacht


Turquoise Yachts has signed a new build contract for a 55-metre explorer yacht designed by Hoek Design Naval Architects.

Hull construction started in the third quarter of 2016 and is expected to be delivered to her owners at the end of 2018.

The exterior styling and interior design are based on a classic profile with a contemporary twist. The yacht was conceived with the capability to explore Polar Regions and the Northwest Passage. The motoryacht is reminiscent of classic steam ships, but is designed and built to be an expedition yacht of the 21st century.

“With our recent expansion of Turquoise’s facilities and our new dry dock, says Turquoise CEO, Mehmet Karabeyoğlu, we are moving full steam ahead on 55m and 77m yachts as well as our 74m and 66m projects and are in a prime position to accommodate multiple superyacht orders simultaneously.”
