Written by Charl van Rooy

Turkish shipyard Mengi-Yay Yachts has announced that it is currently building its largest sailing yacht project (NB99) yet after the contract for sailing yacht L’Aquila II was signed in May this year. Construction on the 42.5-metre sailing yacht will last up to 24 months with an expected delivery to take place in 2021. The project was commissioned by a repeat Mengi-Yay client and the current owner of the 35-metre sailing yacht L’Aquila which recently underwent a major refit. L'Aquia II yacht exterior designPhoto: Mengi-Yay

With a beam of nine metres, L’Aquila II can sleep up to 10 guests in five staterooms along with six crew members in three separate cabins. L'Aquia II yacht exterior designPhoto: Mengi-Yay
