Turquoise Yachts, one of the largest Turkish shipyards (formerly known as Proteksan Turquoise) celebrated a major milestone this week when it moved its current Project TORO from its facility in Kocaeli to its Pendik shipyard located near Istanbul. The impressive feat was achieved by utilizing the shipyard’s floating dock that boasts a 2,5000-ton lifting capacity.
Swimming Luxury for 7 Guests and 21 Yacht Crew
Expected to be launched in 2023, TORO will be the shipyard’s largest yacht to date. The 79m (259ft) is designed by London-based studio Harrison Eidsgaard and the project was sold by yacht brokers SuperYachtsMonaco. When delivered, TORO will boast a generous 8m (26 ft) swimming pool, seven guest staterooms, and accommodation for 21 yacht crew.
It is a busy time for Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts, with six yacht projects currently under construction including 53m (174ft) JEWELS, 76m (249 ft) ARROW and 87m (285ft) VENTO. Turquoise Yachts benefits from expansive facilities in the region, with two shipyards capable of building yacht hulls up to 120m (393ft).
