Sarp Yacht’s inaugural superyacht project will be a 46 metre motor yacht. Currently nearing the end of her construction, she boasts interior designs by British designer, Adam Lay Studio, exterior designs by Osman Tanju Kalaycıoğlu, and naval architecture by Taka Yachts in collaboration with Osman Tanju Kalaycıoğlu.
Designer Tanju Kalaycıoğlu comments “Her shape and size are carefully refined to stay just below the 500 gross ton mark. Steel was the obvious choice for a strong and reliable hull with ample tank capacity. However we opted for epoxy composite to construct our curvy superstructure. By this way, we could save weight from superstructure and fairing compound. All these became a reality thanks to the diligence and experience of our yard manager Emre Sandan and his team.”
The tri-deck vessel will accommodate up to 12 guests over five luxurious cabins, including two twin and two double cabins located on the lower deck. The lavish owner’s suite is located forward on the main deck, and comes complete with a luxurious shower room, dressing area, snug room and generous office space. A crew of up to nine are also accommodated for.
Interior designer Adam Lay comments “The interior of Sarp Yachts’ new 46m motor yacht blends loft apartment styling and mountain chalet influences with a combination of high end natural timber and metal finishes. The aim was to produce a sophisticated and elegant interior, interwoven with clean simplicity of design that results in an inviting, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere”.
Her main salon and dining area on the main deck is welcoming and warm, with ample cosy seating areas to enjoy an evening of entertainment or relaxation. The whole area is surrounded by large windows, ensuring an abundance of natural light and fantastic views to be enjoyed day and night.
The upper deck lounge further enhances the yachts sense of a warm and welcoming ambiance, with the mountain chalet and loft apartment influences very evident in the furniture and art around the room. Two large turquoise coloured L shaped sofas ensure comfortable seating for all guests on board, and bring a dash of vibrancy to the serene surroundings.
Outside, the upper deck aft provides seating areas as well as a large shaded dining area to enjoy the very best of al fresco dining. The sun deck boasts a bar and a further dining area, as well as several comfortable lounging and seating spaces. Forward are plenty of large sunbathing areas.
In addition to her facilities on board, she will also come with Scuba diving equipment and two tenders, the Novurania Chase 19 which will be placed in the main garage, as well as the Novurania DL 400 with 50hp Yamaha outboard.
Powered by twin 1000 BHP @ 1800 rpm Caterpillar C32 12 cyl. diesel engines, she will have a maximum speed of 14.8 knots with a cruising speed of 12 knots. Thanks to her 56,900 litre fuel tanks, she will have a range of 3,200 nm at 12 knots.
Discussing the vast amount of work involved in the construction of the 46 metre superyacht and the perfectionist attitude of Sarp Yacht in general, Shipyard Manager, Emre Şandan, who is also Bachelor of Science in Naval Architecture and a Marine Engineer, comments, “Every week we are giving work orders to painters, sub contractors or mechanical teams and they all know exactly what to do. Every day the safety engineer has to come and check the area if it is safe to work or not. After that, the area can be worked and then after that, the people from our quality control team checks the quality of the work. If it’s to our expected standards, they accept it. If it’s not, they don’t accept it and the team have to do it again. It has to be perfect.”
The 46 metre superyacht is expected to be delivered middle of July, 2015.
