Traditional Styled Superyacht to be Built in Turkey

Archipelago Yachts in Bodrum, Turkey, is to build  ZanZiba a 40-metre, traditional-style schooner for a British owner, with the launch scheduled for the autumn of this year. 

This distinctive and unusual yacht will accommodate up to 14 guests and 8 crew with a spacious deckhouse containing the saloon and covered dining area offering spectacular views, and a lower deck with the guest cabins, crew quarters and service areas.

The interior design is colonial in style with teak, burr oak and zebrano veneers accented by bronze and nickel fittings to create a rich effect dominated by natural tones reminiscent of an earlier and more leisured era. Use of woven rattan and leather add to the overall impression of natural luxury and tactile, three-dimensional textures.   

The build is on schedule for launch this autumn.
