Turquoise’s 74m Vallicelli moves to next stage of construction

Written by Jason Spinks

Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts has shared an update on its in-build 73.6-metre project designed by Vallicelli. Using the shipyard’s floating dock, the yacht has been transferred from their facility in Kocaeli to the shipyard in Pendik for the completion of interior outfitting as well as the application of the yacht’s top paint coat.

The 73.6-metre superyacht will have six decks, four of which will be above sea level. Vallicelli comments: “Visually, the decks decrease progressively towards the aft end, creating a profile with strong diagonal lines that create harmony between the superstructure shapes and the hull.”Turquoise 74m Valicelli yacht in build in PendikPhoto: Turquoise YachtsAccommodation on board will be for up to 14 guests in seven staterooms, including an owner’s suite that comes with a Jacuzzi, an office and access to a private deck. A number of the suites can be converted into private saloons, which along with the dining room, staterooms and main saloon are to feature large windows. The yacht also offers ample accommodation for crew across the captain’s cabin, eight double cabins and three single cabins.Turquoise 74m Valicelli yacht in build in PendikPhoto: Turquoise YachtsFollowing its current schedule, the yacht is due to undergo sea trials in May 2021 and be delivered to her owner, who bought the yacht at the end of 2018, in the summer following her sea trials.
