Following an 18-month build period at Turkish yacht builder Mengi Yay’s shipyard, the 26-metre project NB92 has been delivered to her owners. The all-wooden yacht is the first of its kind, with Mengi Yay expressing the interest of continuing the production of the line. Interested parties can look forward to a delivery time of 14-16 months.Designer Oğuzhan Güler came up with the yacht’s ‘navetta’ style exterior, based upon hull lines developed by Dutch firm Ginton Naval Architects. She is driven by twin MAN 800 hp engines that together deliver a top speed of 17.5 knots. Two generators have been fitted on board to handle the load of all hotel systems and air conditioning units throughout the yacht. For added stability, Seleda is fitted with hydraulic stabilisers by Trac.Inside her generous volume is spacious enough to accommodate 8 guests and 4 crew members. Interior and exterior decks have been kept simple through the use of functional furniture pieces.The sundeck is where guests will find an oversized U-shaped lounge for relaxing during short trips between anchorages. Seleda’s tender is also stowed on the aft section of the deck which is launched with a dedicated crane.
Wood was not only used in the construction of the yacht, but Mengi Yay has utilised the material to add a traditional touch to her modern exterior. Sections of capping rail on both decks and wooden details in the large portholes are used as a reminder of the shipyard’s carpentry skills.
