Turquoise 77M Sells, Set for 2018 Delivery

With a foundation based on that of Vicky, the Turquoise 77m superyacht started on spec will see completion come with European buyers. Come launch in springtime next year, she’ll be the largest Turquoise Yachts project on the water.

While the 253-footer draws inspiration from the 236-foot Vicky, she does differ in some ways. Obviously, she has more up-to-date systems, since Vicky was a 2012 delivery. In terms of styling, there are some family looks. But, H2 Yacht Design made the Turquoise 77m a bit sleeker. The studio also added more curves aft. They’re especially prominent where they flank the swim platform and beach club (above).

H2 Yacht Design’s interior concept should remain largely the same, too. The Turquoise 77m has accommodations for 16 friends and family forward on the main deck. Some of the adjacent staterooms here can become extra-large suites, too. The owners, meanwhile, get an apartment-like space on the upper deck. It includes a private alfresco area with a hot tub forward. An elevator lets everyone access these levels—on up to the sundeck, in fact—from the lower-deck tender garage.

The Turquoise 77m offers a good amount of outdoor enjoyment. Two tenders stow in the just-mentioned tender garage. It’s centrally located, freeing up the full aft area aboard the yacht for a significant-size beach club. Side hatches fold down to make it much more open. All told, it measures 1,744 square feet. Fully up top, the Turquoise 77m has plenty of sunning space around a 16-foot-long pool. (On a related note, H2 Yacht Design penned this pool with a waterfall, flowing from the radar arch. Hopefully the owners will preserve it.)

The builder and design studio haven’t forgotten about crew. Twenty capable hands get accommodations forward below decks, with two lounges and even a gym.

Turquoise Yachts hasn’t released new details about performance. That leads up to believe the megayacht will still make 17 knots under traditional power, as originally planned.

Exterior styling is through H2 Yacht Design, whom collaborated with Turquoise on a current 77-metre project, and previously created two 70-metres for the garden, Talisman C and Vicky, established last year and 2013 respectively. Barracuda builds regarding technical platform and styling of those yachts. The inside of Barracuda is designed by Ken Freivokh.

The Turquoise 74-metre Barracuda has accommodation for 12 within an owner’s suite, two VIPs and four visitor cabins. “The directing considerations have been the satisfaction associated with sea and maximum integration between your decks,” the yard states. A striking feature regarding the outside could be the straight windows amidships, and a key visitor feature inside could be the triple-height atrium, by having a spiral staircase involving the decks and glass floors to further start the areas up.
