Turquoise Yachts has transferred its in-build 74 metre project NB66 from its Kocaeli facility to its yard in Pendik., Istanbul
The yacht, which was transported using the Turkish yard’s floating dock, will now undergo outfitting. The interior is also set to be completed and top paint coat applied.
The superyacht is set to begin sea trials in 16 months while delivery is slated for summer 2021.
Exterior styling comes courtesy of Studio Vallicelli, while the interior décor was developed by Ken Freivokh, working with a total volume of 1,630GT.
“The design focus is on classical elegance,” Freivokh said. “The idea is to achieve a layout that has complete integration between the decks and key internal spaces — with everything designed to maximise the continuity of the yacht’s lines as well as long sightlines.”
Accommodation is for up to 14 guests. Some of the guest suites open into adjoining suites that can act instead as private saloons. The owner’s suite meanwhile sits on the upper deck, which is wrapped in a continuous window and features a private exterior sitting area and two side terraces.
Elsewhere, the yacht will feature a central lobby with a “stunning multi-deck atrium” complete with a spiral staircase and main entrance. Materials used in the interior will include veneers, marbles, granites and hand-picked leathers.
Other star features include a touch-and-go helipad on the forward upper deck, a full beam beach club, steam room, massage room and seven metre swimming pool.
Exterior designer Alessandro Vallicelli explained: “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.”
