To call a megayacht design a quantum leap for a company may sound like hyperbole. However, The Quantum yacht concept that Ken Freivokh created with Turquoise Yachts is about as far from any other project from the builder looks-wise as you can get. It further boasts some big thinking for amenities to make the guests’ time aboard and the crew’s job better.
This 253-footer (77-meter) uses the same naval-architecture platform as a previous Turquoise delivery, the megayacht Go. Therefore, global cruising is the focus, as is a significant guest head count. Specifically, the Quantum yacht concept is for 14 in the owner’s party. You’ll find welcome features like all six guest staterooms on the main deck, as well as the master suite on the upper deck, like a penthouse. Further like Go, the Quantum yacht concept has flexible staterooms. Therefore, two of the guest staterooms can transform into suites with private saloons. Plus, the megayacht offers touch-and-go helicopter operations.
To create the “wow factor,” though, Freivokh and Turquoise offer a drive-in tender garage doubling as a swimming pool in the beach club. Even more eye-catching, the glass bottom from the freshwater pool directly above filters light directly inside. (By the way, that freshwater pool stretches 23 feet long, or 7 meters.) The build and design team is quick to point out, however, that the drive-in nature isn’t just for aesthetics. It’s practical, too, letting everyone board and disembark under cover.
The tender garage isn’t the only toy area aboard, either. The Quantum yacht concept has an additional more traditional garage amidships, to the starboard side. Here, you can keep a limo tender, PWCs, and a beachable tender (say, a RIB). With the ever-increasing desire to take fun watertoys on cruises, this extra garage is a good idea.
Another big amenity sure to attract attention: The Quantum yacht concept has a three-deck-high atrium. Furthermore, it has glass flooring throughout, for an airy look and feel. Buyers will especially enjoy the atrium, considering the owners’ suite has a balcony-like area overlooking it. The balcony is within the private saloon (alternately an office) in the suite. If you can tear your attention away, you’ll enjoy your own private hot tub just outside, forward, with adjoining seating. You also have a private aft deck, overlooking the freshwater pool. And, if you have a young family, you’ll appreciate having a nanny cabin on the same deck.
With opening terraces for the beach club, saloons that can serve as cinemas, and more, the Quantum yacht concept is meant to take Turquoise Yachts a leap further into attracting creative-minded customers.
