Proteksan Turquoise to build Andrew Winch designed Superyacht

Mehmet Karabeyoglu of the Turkish based Proteksan Turquoise Shipyard has announced that Andrew Winch Designs will develop a new flexible 74m motor yacht design for the yard to build

The new yacht will utilise a tested hull platform giving large internal volume which will being offered in two configurations; one a traditional style and the other a more modern approach with sweeping curves.
With the hull well into build and the flexible design package in place, a fast track two year delivery is a possibility. The design package offers further flexibility about where the client wishes to place the owner’s accommodation.
Mehmet Karabeyoglu said ”Although we often use our own in-house design office, we also call upon other well known designers to provide customers with different design approaches, and we also welcome the customers own choice of designer. When I discussed this new 74m project with Stuart Fraser from Fraser Yachts and Tim Wiltshire from Burgess, who were responsible in bringing in the clients for the last two 70+m orders, we decided to call upon the services of Andrew Winch and his team to provide us with a flexible, creative offering and add the strong brand value to the project. With two 70+m projects already in build we again have our dynamic and knowledgeable team ready to market this project and add more in the future.”
The exterior features a long sheer line with a fully glazed window recess in the hull across the guest cabins, resulting in an elegant and sleek signature. In contrast, an option for a stronger look has been designed incorporating a shorter sheer line with longer vertical and individual windows.
The design includes a spa beach balcony and arrival dock, to the stern swim-stair and open beach club terrace.
Within the interior variations provide different client opportunities with the numbers of guest cabins, size of libraries, cinemas, crew numbers/crew cabins etc.  The master bedroom suite is on the upper deck with its own forward balcony and terrace, although it can also be placed in other positions.
A helicopter landing area is isolated to the bow of the yacht, leaving the stern completely clear for leisure, relaxing and entertaining. The wheelhouse deck has a multifunction room at the rear, opening onto a unique inside/outside gym and exercise terrace, alternatively all of this could be the owner’s library.
Brokers Stuart Larsen of Fraser Yachts and Tim Wiltshire of Burgess will handle the sales enquiries
