GO is the largest boat ever constructed by Turquoise Yachts, at over 77 meters (253 feet), and was launched in record time, just 12 months after completion of the hull and superstructures.
She’s called GO and she recently made a splash in the Mediterranean waters of Turkey, from
where she was launched. This is the largest boat ever constructed by Turquoise Yachts, at over 77 meters (253 feet). Designed by London-based H2 Design, she shows DNA very similar to that of her smaller sisters, both in exterior lines and interiors. The builder’s name is borne out in the stunning “Island Turquoise” hull, guaranteeing that this yard’s range of optimal results won’t go unnoticed.
GO was launched in record time, just 12 months after completion of the hull and superstructures. She is clearly a leading-edge new generation yacht, optimised with bulbous bow and special geometry rudders to achieve the lowest water resistance.
Sporting clean exterior lines, her profile has a swerving arch that runs all around the stern of the vessel to the expansive beach club. At the bow is an area dedicated entirely to the owner, with a suite offering uninterrupted panoramic views, and access to a private outdoor lounge area with spa pool. A non-certified touch-and-go helicopter landing platform stands ready at the bow for any eventuality.
The elevator and central stairs provide access to all levels from garage to owner’s deck. Full hospitality is ensured for up to 16 guests, occupying 2 VIP suites and 6 cabins, with further invitations to the spa, gym, treatment room and the 5-meter pool centred in a vast sundeck.
The beach club stretches over 162 fantastic square metres, offering direct sea access. A 9.6m/31.2ft tender emerges from a dedicated garage, and a smaller multipurpose 8 m/26ft tender docks near the middle of the yacht.
A yacht of this size requires substantial staff for operations and onboard services: the 20-member crew are accommodated in the generous spaces of three single and seven double cabins, further supported by an on-board hospital/clinic.
With its steel hull and aluminium superstructure, totalling almost 2000 tons, and drawing full power from Caterpillar motor of more than 2500 HP, GO reaches a maximum speed of 17 knots.
With this and other yachts currently in construction, Turquoise boosts its strategy of internationalization in overseas markets, confirms its intention to grow, and proves that its a great competitor of the seas.
