The yard has confirmed that the hull and superstructure are completed and the interior work is now in process, all of which are to the designs of exterior stylist De Basto Designs and interior designers H2 Yacht Design.
At 720 GT, Tala offers nine staterooms, including an owner's suite and VIP located forward of the main deck. Other notable features onboard are her swim platform, spacious exterior deck areas and sun deck with a hot tub, sun-pads, TV, bar and BBQ.Photo: Merijn de Waard / SuperYacht TimesPhoto: Turquoise Yachts“With Tala’s enormous volume, my objective was to make the exterior less bulky and give a feeling of a forward dynamic movement, rather than a static feel,” says Luiz de Basto. “I wanted the design to show movement and purpose from any angle. I achieved this with the long ascending line from the swim platform all the way up to the mast and down to the pilothouse windshield.” Photo: Turquoise Yachts
Mr Horsfield of H2 Yacht Design adds: “The interior of Tala is set to reveal the diversity of our design studio’s abilities with the client opting for a rich traditional style with a colourful combination of classic details, burl veneers, marble flooring, and the interior will be lavishly embellished with gold highlights."
