Making her way from Istanbul to Monaco for a special world debut this month, Tansu Yachts’ new 43.7-metre motor yacht Cyclone once again raises the bar of what the Turkish yacht builder is capable of. Cyclone is the fourth yacht delivered by Tansu Yachts in 12 months’, a period accumulating 160 metres and 1196 GT worth of yachts.
Cyclone’s interior and exterior design is done in house by Tansu and once again carries the signature naval-inspired look that the brand has become known for. Noticeable on Cyclone is a more sensual hull line and two large faceted forward-facing viewing areas that give the vessel a particularly aggressive look. Dutch naval aechitecture firm Diana Yacht Design were once again involved in the project for their technical expertise.
Inside there is accommodation for up to eight guests and five crew members. The interior is split across three decks, with the very upper deck reserved for the owner’s use.
The stretched main deck runs from the wheelhouse up forward to the open beach area aft, another Tansu trademark. When underway, this deck is also used to store the yacht’s two tenders; a special 6.2-metre Tansu edition Rupert R6 and a 4.2-metre Zodiac Pro Tender.
The lower deck houses the additional guest cabins along with a large crew area up forward.
At full speed, she runs at 21.7 knots through the use of her two Cat C32 engines.
