95m superyacht Indian Empress completes refit

Written by
Charl van Rooy

The largest Oceanco superyacht to date, the 95m Indian Empress launched in 2000, has completed an intensive refit period at Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts. The EUR 6,400,000project involved an extensive rework of the interior spaces by Mark Berryman Design.

Mehmet Karabeyoğlu, CEO of Turquoise, commented on the short turn around time of the project: “Apart from our experience and expertise, what we brought to the party was speed and flexibility. The owner wanted the boat for summer use, which gave us a narrow window of opportunity to finish the project. New ideas and alterations kept flooding in after work had commenced. Our ability to make decisions on the spot and adapt quickly without reams of red tape was key to the speed and success of the refit.”

The yacht has been nominated as a finalist in the 2016 World Superyacht Awards, along with other intensive refit projects such as Heesen’s superyacht Seven Sins, completed at Balk Shipyards.
