Vitruvius Yachts to Build 80m Project at Turquoise


To date all three of the motor yachts so far delivered to the designs of Vitruvius Yachts, the 50m Exuma, 55m Galileo G and 73m Grace E have all been built in Italy in collaboration with Picchiotti part of the Perini Navi Group.

We know learn that the next will be built by Turquoise Yachts in Turkey.

The proposed 80m motor yacht is the largest Vitruvius so far. It is a yacht with well – proportioned and balanced lines deigned to provide generous living space on board, while retaining a sense of intimacy.

The project, it is one of the first new build projects announced by Turquoise since Dr Mohammed Al Barwani the owner of Oceanco acquired a majority stake in the shipyard.

It is also the largest of Philippe Briand’s designs to be realised under the Vitruvius Yachts name.

The profile of the new yacht has the distinctive lines of the Vitruvius “family feeling”, with a streamlined design, and sensation of transparency in the superstructure through substantial use of glass in the living space.

An owner’s deck below the sundeck is comprised of a generous owner’s salon, office and stateroom, with a private terrace and Jacuzzi forward. In total, 12 guests are accommodated, in six suites, plus 21 crew.

A gym with adjoining spa with sauna, hammam and plunge pool will have remarkable views of the waterline via a floor-to-ceiling window amidships. A full-beam, open beach club to the aft of the yacht will provide the perfect space from which to enjoy daytime watersports.

There will be more than 395sqm of deck space over four decks, and a number of stunning design features including an infinity swimming pool, three levels of outdoor lounging and dining areas, and two Jacuzzis.

Vitruvius Yachts draws on the pedigree of Philippe Briand’s highly evolved sailing yachts, of which over 12,000 have been produced to date.

The Yachts feature the Briand Optimised Stretched (BOS) hull design to take naval architecture of luxury motor yachts to the next level, based on the ethos of “ideal proportion” seen in Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. The increased efficiency of the vessel reduces the operational costs of fuel consumption, extends its cruising range and minimises its environmental emissions.

The current range ability for the Vitruvius Yachts platform is 45 to 100+ metres. Each Vitruvius Yachts design is created to the owner’s specifications, with a number of boundary-pushing features that have included ice-class capabilities for polar cruising and diesel electric propulsion for improved. These constructions are conceived – in steel and aluminium – to offer the longest hull for a given volume and the shortest hull for this same given volume.
