First look: Turquoise Yachts and H2 Design’s new 47m Razan

Written by Charl van Rooy

Turquoise Yachts recently delivered its 47-metre motor yacht named Razan after launching the H2-designed vessel in October last year. Following a summer’s season of cruising, Razan is expected to be on display at the Cannes, Monaco, and Fort Lauderdale yacht shows.

Razan’s exterior design and layout was revisited mid-build and Turquoise managed to deliver her owner a nearly completely different project that what was originally started. “Although she was a very well designed boat to start with,” says Turquoise CEO, Mehmet Karabeyoglu, “the owner wanted something different so we didn’t use any of the existing drawings. We designed everything from scratch.

Today Razan is finished in a fresh, crisp exterior and offers guests the perfect platform from which to enjoy a simpler and elegant life on the water. Features onboard are functional but also designed to streamline life onboard and increase connectivity with the sea. A larger beach area has been incorporated into the design and so too have the larger hull windows in the master cabin and the removal of the fashion plates on main deck aft.

The sub 500 GT yacht can house 12 lucky guests in her ultra modern interior. The quarters include two VIP suites, a master stateroom and three comfortable guest cabins. Razan is made for the family lifestyle as each cabin is fitted with a pulman berth.

On a technical level, Razan also performs with an impressive range of 4,200 nm. Her 2.6-metre draft and 17.5 knot top speed makes her ideal for island hopping in the Caribbean.

Still currently under construction at Turquoise Yachts is the 66-metre Nuvolari Lenard project, a 53-metre Hoek Design classic motor yacht, 77-metre project NB 63, and 81-metre Vitruvius world cruiser yacht.
