Yacht Turmoil

I was at another boating site and there was a picture of the yacht Turmoil with information that she is heading to Chicago. Does anyone have any information on her? Do we know when she will be in Chicago? Anyone know if she will be stopping in Milwaukee along the way?

Hi,

I wonder just how far they went with those Fenders hanging out the side like that.

I don't know where it is stopping but have recently heard that it's big cruising plans have been put on hold owing to the Owners ill health.

I'm not sure. Here is what is listed about the picture...



Cayman Islands registered yacht "Turmoil" up bound in the St Lawrence Seaway at Kahnawake Mohawk Territorial Lands bound for Chicago, Monday. Her anchor pockets are stainless steel lined, as is the lower bow stem showing reflections on the blue hull.


I did a web search and a few hits come up that Turmoil was made by Palmer Johnson. Is that correct? What are the benefits of a yacht this style. I'm familar with this style from the Coast Guard buoy tenders. What do they use the front deck for? Do you lose cabin space compared to a traditional style yacht?

This expeditionary style yacht is very spacious with a dedicated owners deck. Area forward is tender storage as well as vessel equipment similar to how your Coast Guard buoy tender would stow equipment. Turmoil is actively on the market and as a single owner vessel kept in excellent shape, she would make for a great yacht for someone who wishes to go around the world.

Hi,

The boat in the picture was built in Denmark at Royal Denship I think it was.

I'm a little confused. Does anyone know who the owner is? The other website is stating that the owner's main house is in Waukesha WI but the yacht is kept in Chicago. I thought I read above someone stated that it's on the market due to the owners poor health.

Welcome to YachtForums. Since you are new here, you may not have yet realized that nobody here is in the business of giving up too much personal information about the owners, or crew for that matter, of the yachts.
Many of us know who each of the owners are and many of them are even members, but to divulge that type of information would be crossing a line that would compromise their privacy.
You will find a high caliber membership here who has lots of infomation to offer about anything yachting, but some questions and information are off limits.
Enjoy the site and happy yacht spotting.
Ken

I do apologize. That wasn't my intent and I guess it doesn't matter who owns it. It's not like they are going to invite me to the yacht. I guess I was more after trying and hoping it would stop in Milwaukee. I know whoever owns Blue Moon is up in Milwaukee on a regular basis and it's just nice to see the yachts here. I totally respect their privacy and didn't mean to cross any lines.

No offense taken.
FYI- I just got off the phone with my father and Blue Moon must be making their southern migration because they are currently down bound on the St. Clair River south of Lake Huron.

Here bnk190, maybe this will help

There are two expedition style yachts called Turmoil and both have similar lines. The picture you posted is from Royal Denship as K1W1 pointed out. Its 209 feet in length.

The other was built by PJ about 10 yrs ago and has just been sold.

It is 151 feet in length.

Talk about timing. This morning took the boat out and what comes pulling into the Port of Milwaukee? If you guessed Turmoil you are correct. Very sharp yacht and even comes with a helicopter on the back. First time I have seen a yacht in person with the helicopter on the back. It appeared that there were two tenders undercover on the main front deck.

It also appears there is some remodeling taking place. On the aft deck there was an enclosure and you could hear saws and such from there. Thanks to all that posted.

Went for a run along the lakefront over lunch today, and spotted this beauty tied up along the S end of Burnham Harbor - right across from McCormick Place.
Striking boat.
