With the build commencing this winter, Turquoise Yachts' 80-metre Vitruvius is a bold statememt of intent from the reborn yard.
Key features of the Philippe Briand design are the streamlined lines and the extensive use of big windows. An owner’s stateroom on the upper deck boasts a sea view, a private lounge, an office, a private terrace with hot-tub, and direct access to the helipad. There are six main-deck guest cabins. “The exterior lines, clean and razor sharp, are in harmonic relationship to the interior, creating a continuity through the huge windows. The monochromatic and contemporary interior décor creates an exclusive environment, where beauty is a consequence of balance,” says Philippe Briand.
The lower-deck wellness area has a sauna, hammam, hydrotherapy room and massage rooms, with a folding beach club aft. There’s an infinity pool aft on the main deck and a further pool on the sundeck.
“We are thrilled to be playing a part in the rebirth of the Turquoise Yachts and, having known CEO Mehmet Karabeyoglu for some time, we are committed to working on this exciting project. Based on the advanced design from Vitruvius Yachts, this yacht will represent the very best and most exciting of superyachts, and it will be a testament to the world-class vessels that can be built there,” says Veerle Battiau, managing director of Vitruvius Yachts.
Also in build at Turquoise Yachts are the 77-metre Project NB63 – an evolution of the 72-metre Vicky, which launched in 2012 – and a 47-metre that will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2016. Both yachts are designed by H2 Design.
