Turquoise’s floating dock— with a 2500 ton lifting capacity— transferred the 74 meter NB66 from its Kocaeli facility to its yard in Pendik.

Turquoise’s new build, 74m, was moved to the Pendik yard for completion of interior installation and outfitting as well as the topcoat paint application. This new yacht features exterior design by A.Vallicelli & C. Yacht Design and interior design by Ken Freivokh. On schedule for sea trials in 16 months, its delivery is expected in the summer of 2021.

With six deck levels, four above sea level, there is a tendency for a yacht to appear bulky or top-heavy. 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 of the 74 m was carried out by Ken Freivokh Design team, with a focus on classical elegance, always aiming to achieve a layout focused on maximum integration between decks and between key internal spaces.

The owners’ quarters on the upper deck features a continuous window overlooking a private exterior sitting area, inclusive of two side terraces. The rectangular windows on the main deck in the full-beam zone of the hull are drawn with a firmer geometric approach unlike the windows in the master suite and are dimensioned according to their correspondence with the standard and VIP guest cabins.

“The 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 maximize the continuity of the yacht’s lines as well as long sightlines.”

Dominated by a multi-deck atrium there is the central lobby, surrounded by a spiral staircase with the main entrance boasting a double-height sculptural space.  The yacht’s interior has been designed to be bright and welcoming. Materials include veneers, marbles and granites, and hand-picked leathers.

The sheltered aft decks include a lounge, a dining area, and a swimming pool.  The accommodation for 14 guests can be converted, just by adjoining the suites, to private saloons.

Turquoise 74m features a full-beam beach club that opens aft to the swimming platform and includes shell doors on either side, which open to become extended platforms to the sea. There is a tender garage with a shell door giving access to a full-length 9.6m limousine tender and to a multi-purpose guest tender, all in addition to a rescue/crew tender forward and garaging for a number of jet skis.

A touch and go area for a helicopter is located on the forward upper deck, from which you can directly access the private owner’s exterior area furnished with an outdoor dinette, sunbathing cushions and/or a Jacuzzi.
