Vicky is the Largest Motor Yacht to be Launched in Turkey

Just over a year has passed since Proteksan Turquoise made superyacht news with three launches in as many months. Now the largest motor yacht to be launched in Turkey is on final sea trials before making her debut on the world’s oceans.

The 72.6 metre Vicky is the latest and to date the largest new build from the Turkish builder in Tuzla and will be ready for delivery at the end of June 2012.

The yacht is expected to make her public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show this September.

The yacht is another stylish collaboration between the talented in-house naval architecture team and H2 Yacht Design in London, and follows directly on from the last launch by this collaboration, the 70.54m Talisman C.

A defining feature of this new yacht is the forward deck, circular helipad. Considering the hull platform and overall size is very similar to Talisman C, the exterior styling could not be more different with the sweeping curves of the glazed upper windows and side balconies echoing the refined upper superstructure design.

Like her predecessor, Vicky has a top speed of 17 knots delivered by twin 2447 BHP Caterpillar’s and a substantial 7000nm range at 12 knots.
