The history of Turquoise Yachts goes back to 1970’s with the building of Turkey’s first yachts under the Proteksan and Turquoise brands.
Since then, many more megayachts ranging from 40 to 77 meters in length have been delivered to an international roster of clients from the USA, UK, Europe and Russia. In 2014, MB Holding became the majority shareholder in Turquoise Yachts, confirmation of Turquoise as a high-end inventive and eminently capable custom builder. Representing the pinnacle in yacht building, we continue to upgrade our facilities and processes at our two shipyards and continuously have several superyachts under construction. To service our global customers, we now have offices in Monaco and Fort Lauderdale, as well as offering full technical assistance and support from our Istanbul headquarters.
Turquoise Yachts has two shipyards, one in Istanbul at Pendik and the other in Kocaeli. The Pendik shipyard, used expressly for interior decoration and finishing work is just a few minutes drive from the international Sabiha Gokcen airport.
The second shipyard with a 120m dock is located in Kocaeli, just across the bay from Pendik. Its main function is the completion of steel and aluminum hull and superstructure work, as well as the installation of machinery and heavy piping. The yard has the capability and facilities to build yachts with an overall length of up to 120m.
