Turkish Delight


The Turkish shipyard Proteksan Turquoise got off to a flying start to 2011 launching three MegaYachts in a row. The most written about and well known of the three yacht launched is Yogi 197ft. The exterior lines of this yacht have the characteristics of an expedition type style but blend well to produce the stunning looks of this yacht.
The yard and their design team in collaboration with the owners have come together to create something very special. The owners of this yacht were keen to charter her out so she can be seen in the Med for her first charter season. the rate for charter is 375,000 a week and can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 cabins. Some of her features includes a temperature controlled swimming pool aft on the second deck, a full massage room, a jacuzzi, a sun deck and two beach clubs.
The interior was designed by Jean Guy Verges and has the look at feel relaxation and tranquil. It all most has a zen like look with all the light colors and oriental style doors. This natural interior is perfect for the charter market and will suit everyone tastes.
She has a beam of 30.8ft which will leave plenty of space for her owners and guest to enjoy. With twin CAT engines she can produce a top speed of 16kts and a crusing speed of 12kts which will have a range of 5000nm.

Keep a look out for more interesting designs from this great yard.
