Following her contract signing, Turquoise’s Project Arrow has become the Turkish builder’s sixth yacht currently under construction.
Though the shipyard is keeping most details confidential, it is revealing a few technical specifications. Firstly, her length is 250 feet (76.25 meters). Project Arrow additionally has a healthy beam of 43 feet (13.2 meters) and an overall volume of 1,800 gross tons. All naval architecture and engineering is coming from the builder’s in-house departments. The owner has requested that part of the engineering package include a hybrid propulsion system incorporating batteries.
In terms of design, the profile is from Enrico Gobbi – Team for Design. Project Arrow marks the first time the studio and the shipyard are working together. However, a team familiar to Turquoise Yachts is responsible for the interior design. Namely, it’s H2 Yacht Design. In fact, the duo first collaborated nearly 18 years ago. Project Arrow is now their 10th megayacht.
Turquoise Yachts is not disclosing information on the general arrangement or décor, at least at this point. Furthermore, it is not disclosing the anticipated delivery date.
In the meantime, the other megayachts currently under construction include four motoryachts and one sailing superyacht. The latter is Rainbow II, a bluewater cruiser resembling an early-20th-century sloop. She should see delivery this year. Among the motoryachts, there’s Project Vento, signed toward the end of last year. At 285 feet (87 meters), she will be Turquoise’s largest delivery at hand-over in 2024, too. The remaining motoryacht projects are the 174-foot (53-meter) Jewels, the 246-foot (75-meter) NB69, and Toro, a 259-footer (79-meter). On a related note, Toro was the largest contract for Turquoise until Project Vento came along.
