Going Going Gone: Turquoise Sells 75m Project
Turkish shipyard Turquoise, builder of such iconic yachts as Go and Quantum of Solace, has typically had very little trouble in the field of brokerage success. This reputation was reinforced, even in this period of economic adversity for many, as the yard announced today the speedy sale of new 75m Project NB69.
NB69, the fruit of a collaboration between Turquoise and Vallicelli Design and sister ship of NB66, has already begun construction at the Pendik shipyard. The yacht’s stylish and dynamic living space has been penned by Sinot Yacht Design, marking the first time the two have collaborated on a project.
NB69 was transferred from Turquoise’s Kocaeli facility to its yard in Istanbul for the completion of its interior installations, outfitting and top coat paint application. The project is on track for delivery towards the end of 2021.
The project is in every way a characteristic Turquoise build. Combining sleek and elegant lines with a formidable profile, NB69 encapsulates an array of geometric canopies and bulwarks on its side decks.
Bearing all the hallmarks of a custom Turquoise superyacht, including a touch-and-go helipad, jacuzzi and massive limousine tender, NB69 also boasts a selection of enviable unique features. Its large full-beam beach club is unusually spacious even for a yacht of this size, and her profile is remarkably streamlined for a 75-metre by virtue of a low-angled transom slope and long forward overhang.
The sale of NB69 was brokered by Stuart Larson of Fraser Yachts. We look forward to bringing our readers more news on the project as it draws closer to starting life on the water.
