    Dunya Yachts in Turkey has a 72-meter yacht code-named "Red Square" for delivery in 2010.

    You can have a look at computer generations, renders and some construction photos of the 72-meter project "Red Square" on the Dunya Yachts website.

    Tom, she looks a good design. I hope this is one of those occasions that her interior turns out better in reality then in the renders. I think Alberto Pinto is responsible for the interior design of Project "Red Square".

    Obviously "Red Square" has been pushed back. She was oringinally for late 09, then 2010, then early 2011, now I see Fall 2011.

    As we all know, Fall 2011 is gone! What is happening with "Red Square"! Has she been launched secretly or is she still further behind time?

    LOL difficult to launch such a yacht secretly.
    At first I thought that a ownerchange is the reason for the delay.
    But Edmiston still has her in their 'for sale' portfilio for 82,836,000 USD in addition they changed to launch date into 2012, so we have to wait and see..

    They did? thanks I didn't see that. I thought the last word was late 2011.

    Pretty unusual - more than 2 years delay for a 73 metre yacht?!
    If I remember correct Eclipse had one year delay and she is 163 metre long..

    Yep unusual. They put 2012 in the specifications for year built but still says 2011 in the description of the yacht... I just really want to see this yacht launched, she is a nice design on the exterior...I have to wait and see how the interior will turn out because I am not really feeling the renderings.

    Yes the interior is pretty exotic.
    I think you will see many nice newbuilts next year - 2012 will be a good year with many interesting yachts.

    reason for delay at dunya

    i assume these are build as speculation yachts; hence the reason for delay.

    "Red Square's" deck spaces and interior look REALLY GOOD! In rendering I wasn't so sure if I would like the finished product but wow!

    Hats off to the late Alberto Pinto.

    Spectacular video and spectacular yacht! I hope it's true quality is as good as it looks. Quite an ambitious build for that yard, with an excellent result.

    "Axioma" now looks alot different ready for the coming seasons. After refit work recently she has a sparkling new Turquoise hull similar to that of superyacht "GO".
