New 74m Turquoise superyacht in build


The new vessel will be completed by the end of August 2018

Turkish yard Turquoise yachts has revealed new details about the 74m superyacht project.

Turquoise Yachts’ 74m motoryacht with exterior styling by A. Valicelli & C. Yacht Design and interior by Ken Freivokh Design is progressing at pace with the hull finished and the superstructure expected to be completed by the end of August, 2018.

With five deck levels, three above sea level, there is a tendency for a yacht to appear bulky or top heavy and Vallicelli has worked to diminish that effect. “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,” says Alessandro Vallicelli.


“The interior design focus is on classical elegance,” says Ken Freivokh. “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.”

The central space in the yacht is a multi-deck atrium, centred around a spiral staircase, with the main entrance enjoying a double height sculptural space. Panoramic view saloons open to the sheltered aft decks, which include lounging, dining and a swimming pool. The accommodation has been developed to cater for 12 guests, conceived for maximum flexibility, with some of the suites capable of opening seamlessly to adjoining suites that convert to private saloons.


The near 100 sq.m. owner’s stateroom is located forward on the upper deck, opening to a private deck with seating/lounging and a Jacuzzi. Additionally, there is a second smaller cabin alongside for children, or a bodyguard or other staff.

The yacht is designed to carry up to 20 crew plus an appropriate captain suite adjoining the bridge.


A full tender garage can accommodate a 10.4m Pascoe limousine tender, an 8m guest tender and water toys.
