As the ultimate luxury item, superyachts are designed and built to some of the highest specifications of any object in the world. Many yachts feature entirely custom interiors from world-class designers to reflect the unique status of the vessels themselves, and as yachts are moving objects that face often turbulent conditions, the furniture used aboard needs to be specially designed as well. Superyacht furniture needs to be both beautiful and functional, accommodating sometimes limited spaces and resilient against marine conditions, and that is where Lotus Woodworks comes in.  Founded by carpenter Tim McCune, Lotus Woodworks has pioneered an expanding dining table that is ideally suited to use aboard superyachts. Based on an original design from 1835 by Robert Jupe, Tim and his team has reimagined the Lotus table, building each one meticulously by hand and to unique specifications at their workshop in Arizona.

How To Build It

Build Reports
Project Toro is the first in a series from Turquoise Yachts based on an in-house engineering platform that offers clients faster delivery times combined with ample opportunity for customisation. Now in the outfitting stage, we travelled to the shipyard in Istanbul to visit the project before her launch later this year. Project Toro began in classic fashion with a charter client looking for a pre-owned yacht to buy. His long-term broker, Simon Ting of SuperYachtsMonaco, marked a potential 60-metre candidate and designers Harrison Eidsgaard were brought in to assess the interior for refit.   After discussions with the client, however, it was felt the yacht wasn’t ticking the right boxes and the focus changed to a new build. Armed with a preliminary exterior and interior design by Harrison Eidsgaard, Ting began the search for a suitable shipyard. “We initially focused on northern Europe, but this was during Covid, slots were scarce and prices were going

Mark Small, Technical Director at Rob Doyle Design, recounts how it was done.On 12 May 2022, we received a call from the captain of 77.6-metre M5 saying they had collided with a submerged object while sailing off the coast of Peru. The yacht had slowed significantly, but the impact was nothing like hitting a container. The crew concluded it was probably a freak encounter with a whale.  They undertook a full internal inspection around the keel box, hydraulic locking rams and locking shims. There was no apparent damage to any part of the structure or fittings, so M5 continued sailing into Lima and arrived the
