Proteksan and Turquoise announce new 74-meter design
With an enviable order book of over 380m in-build and a new 58m on the dock for the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show, a confident Mehmet Karabeyoglu of the Turkish based Proteksan Turquoise Shipyard has joined with Stuart Larsen of Fraser Yachts and Tim Wiltshire of Burgess to commission Andrew Winch Designs to develop a new flexible 74-meter motor yacht design.
As can be seen from the designs, renderings and accommodation drawings supplied by Andrew Winch Designs for the two variations, the potential client has a great deal of flexibility in both the exterior design and interior layout. Andrew Winch comments ”After many years of conversations with Mehmet Karabeyoglu, it is a great pleasure to have been asked to develop a new design based on the Proteksan Turquoise 70+m platform.”
For the exterior of this 74-meter project we have created 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 has a huge amount of creative and specific features on board – from the spa beach balcony and arrival dock, to the stern swim-stair and open beach club terrace. The Proteksan Turquoise 74-meter has a collection of variations within the interior plan to provide different client opportunities with the numbers of guest cabins, size of libraries, cinemas, crew numbers/crew cabins etc. A spectacular 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 large multifunction room at the rear, opening onto a unique inside/outside gym and exercise terrace, alternatively all of this could be a wonderful owner’s library and sunset bar! With many owner’s options, creative features and elegant lines, this Winch designed 74-meter will certainly be a successful evolution of the Proteksan Turquoise line!”
