After following her through her initial construction stages over a year ago, SYT takes a closer look at the recently delivered 46.33-metre luxury superyacht Meteor. Built by the family-owned shipyard Mural Yachts in Turkey, the construction of Meteor was a very smooth process with the yard turning a semi-complete deck structure to a fair-ready hull and superstructure in 12 months.

The RINA classed and MCA compliant steel and aluminium built project was signed by a Turkish client in September 2015. Spread over four decks and just under 500GT, she has been created with a family-focus at the heart of her design, which was created completely in-house at Mural Yachts.
Photo: Mural YachtsThe exterior design has been fashioned in a contemporary style with a modern twist so when she is seen on the water she appears sleek and well-balanced. With large windows throughout, the superyacht’s interiors - styled in oak and sycamore with a teak trim - are filled with plenty of light to compliment her open and airy layout, which is able to be modified by her new owner.
Photo: Mural YachtsUp to ten guests can choose from five staterooms: one master suite, three doubles and a twin. If the entertainment centres, television screens and en-suite bathrooms aren’t enough in the staterooms, guests can enjoy Meteor’s close to 400m2 outdoor teak decks.
Her large sun deck is one of her central spaces for entertainment, with a wet bar, TV, bathing platform, and three separate seating areas. The aft upper deck provides an alternative area for sunbathing as well as a generous al fresco dining area, while another seating area is found in front of the wheelhouse.

If desired this foredeck structure can allow for a large crane to be installed for additional toy storage. The aft main deck allows for more sheltered dining, and from here, the large swim platform is accessed and gives Meteor plenty of options for manoeuvring a 5.2-metre tender.
Photo: Mural YachtsMeteor is presently managed by a crew of seven for private use, but can accommodate a crew of nine. The excellent crew quarters have been designed for a maximum of nine crew and feature a captain’s cabin directly behind the wheelhouse, a great galley, main-deck and lower-deck crew mess, all of which would serve a charter voyage well.
Photo: Mural YachtsThanks to her four fin stabilisers, Meteor is very quiet and comfortable at sea, even at top speeds. Her crew, or enthusiastic owner, can enjoy the large workspaces and top notch supplies and materials in the engine room. From here, the superyacht can be propelled by her twin 1200 hp Cummins KTA 38M2 diesel engines to a top speed of 16 knots. Whilst cruising at 12 knots, Meteor can travel with her guests to 4700 nm.
