On 17th of July, Turquoise’s floating dock (which has a 2500-ton lifting capacity) transferred the 75m Vallicelli superyacht from Turquoise’s Kocaeli facility to its yard in Istanbul, Pendik, where she will undergo the completion of interior installations and outfitting as well as a top coat paint application.

Her central tender garage can house a 10.2-metre limousine tender as well as a multi-purpose guest tender, a rescue/crew tender and several jet skis.
Additional plus points on board the 75-metre Vallicelli superyacht include her touch-and-go helicopter (located forward on the upper deck), and the owner's private exterior area complete with outdoor dinette, sunbathing cushions and Jacuzzi. She also comes equipped with a gym, treatment room, media lounge and library, dive shop and surf shack, as well as a 4.1-metre pool and lounge area.
As well as the owner's suite which has its own private deck and office, guests are accommodated across a VIP cabin and five additional staterooms. A crew of 21 is also housed on board across eleven cabins.
Performance-wise, the vessel's Caterpillar 3516C 1920kW engines enable her to reach a top speed of 17 knots. The 75m Vallicelli superyacht is on schedule for delivery in the last quarter of 2021 following sea trials.
