Details are scarce, but suffice it to say that when Project Toro sees her anticipated delivery in 2023, she will rank as the largest-ever megayacht to take shape at Turquoise Yachts. Additionally, she will rank as one of the largest-ever megayachts to take shape on Turkish soil.
Project Toro is a 259-footer (79-meter) featuring styling and interior design by Harrison Eidsgaard. The shipyard and design teams can only share the initial sketch here for the time being. Unfortunately, neither party can reveal much about the megayacht’s features, either. Ben Harrison of Harrison Eidsgaard does, though, say that Project Toro will have “a multitude of unique interior and exterior design features.” Furthermore, the yacht has a significant-size pool, stretching nearly 28 feet long (8.5 meters).
While we wait for other details, it’s notable that this is the first time the design studio and the shipyard are collaborating. Also notable, the largest yacht from a Turkish builder is the Bilgin 263. Therefore, Turquoise’s newest contract is a close second.
In the meantime, Turquoise Yachts has a few other projects under construction that will launch this year. One of them is Rainbow II, a sloop with engineering by Dykstra Naval Architects. (Construction had actually begun in The Netherlands several years ago, but the shipyard, Holland Jachtbouw, went out of business.) She gets her name from the famous classic J-Class yacht and, fittingly for that, will have a traditional mahogany interior.
Yet another Turquoise project to keep an eye out for is Project Vallicelli. She measures 239’5” (73.9 meters) and carries her project name due to design from Vallicelli & C., the well-known Italian studio.
