An owner has acquired a 246-footer (75-meter) already in build at Turquoise Yachts. The project, Turquoise NB69, only recently became ready for the interior installations stage. This still leaves plenty of opportunity for the customer to ensure the areas reflect how he and his guests like to live.
Previously referred to as Turquoise’s 74-meter Vallicelli design, the megayacht features styling by A. Vallicelli & C., with long, flowing lines. In fact, her lines lend her a sleeker look than you might expect from a yacht whose volume is approximately 1,690 gross tons.
Turquoise NB69 transferred from the yard’s facility focused on steel and aluminum work to the outfitting yard in July. The owner has brought Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design onboard to design the interior. Interestingly, this is the first time that the shipyard and the studio have worked together. With a beam of 46’6” (14.2 meters), Turquoise NB69 offers abundant opportunity for creating social spaces and private retreats.
Although Turquoise is not revealing much about the interior, we can share some details. For instance, the owner’s suite will lead out to a private deck with sunpads and a dining spot. The deck, in turn, leads farther out to the touch-and-go helipad. Friends and family, meanwhile, will have a VIP suite along with five guest staterooms. A media lounge and library will let them relax both day and night. Even more relaxation, though, will come in the spa treatment area, the beach club with three opening sides, and of course the pool and pool lounge. Since the pool will stretch more than 13 feet (4.1 meters), guests can do laps for exercise. Otherwise, the gym takes care of workout needs. Finally, and what sounds like the most fun to us, Turquoise NB69 will have a dive center and “surf shack.”
Additionally featuring a convertible hospital, should the need arise, Turquoise NB69 can carry multiple tenders and toys for all sorts of day trips. The megayacht herself should see a top speed of 17 knots under Caterpillar power, with transatlantic range.
The owner should take delivery toward the end of 2021.
