Computer generated images detailing how the 50-metre super-sailing yacht Troy, currently in build at the Esen shipyard in Bodrum, will look when she is completed in late 2014 have been released
They show exterior styling and interior design by Tim Saunders working in conjunction with Esenyacht’s own design team.
Troy will have accommodation for 12 guests and nine crew members. The spaces below decks will feature long flowing lines that reflect her role as a performance sailing yacht designed for competitive regatta racing as well as luxury cruising.
Materials used will include marble from the Bodrum based shipyard’s own quarry in central Anatolia and fine leathers sourced from suppliers to some of the top Italian luxury brands.
Special attention has also been paid to the design and layout of the galley, which will include technology not previously used in the yachting sector.
Work meanwhile is now focused on the initial fitting out of the steel hull, with the composite superstructure due to go on in early 2014.
Troy follows on from the yard’s inaugural project Glorious, a spacious 36m sailing yacht launched in 2011 that is currently chartering in the Mediterranean.
Now available for sale, she was the first iteration of the builders philosophy that sets out to combine northern European quality with a commitment to building yachts that are genuinely handcrafted down to the finest details.
This represents a deliberate departure from the standard superyacht model of complex supply chains and assembly-orientated production techniques.
