The newest, and largest, megayacht from Turquoise Yachts is still in the yard’s home country of Turkey. But, she’s officially in her owner’s hands. Go will soon be visiting other ports of call throughout the Mediterranean, too, on her maiden voyage.
A flurry of confetti heralded Go’s launch in March. The 253-footer (77-meter) celebrated that milestone just 14 months after her owner acquired her. Turquoise Yachts had begun construction on spec, for a more attractive delivery time for a buyer.
The sharp styling, highlighted by an elongated bow and striking turquoise hull color, is from H2 Yacht Design. The UK-based studio had previously worked with Turquoise Yachts on Vicky, finished in 2012. Vicky and Go share some styling features. However, they have enough differences to distinguish them from each other. The new megayacht has a larger enclosed upper deck, for example, and surely larger ports, given today’s preferences.
Something the owner of Go preferred, and H2 Yacht Design created for him, is an upper-deck master suite. In fact, Turquoise Yachts refers to the level above the main deck as the owner’s deck. Penthouse-like accommodations sit forward here. Given the windows rimming that forward area, the views each morning should be inspiring. They extend out over the bow, so perhaps the owner can spot a dolphin or two swimming by. If he does, he can continue watching the show from a private alfresco area. The megayacht provides the owner with direct access from his suite to an outside deck space, further featuring a hot tub.
Go has guest accommodations for 16 people, all of which sit on the main deck. A crew of 20 make sure everyone is taken care of, whether staying onboard or departing via helicopter (from a touch-and-go pad).
You’ll get a chance to step aboard Go at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
