  1. Proteksan & Turquoise 72.67-meter "Vicky" superyacht

    Turkish yacht builder Proteksan & Turquoise has been basking in the success of their recent achievements. It is only four months into the year 2011 and this Turkish yacht company has already successfully launched three large luxury motor yachts. All of them are larger than 50-meters with the largest being about 70-meters. The latest activity at the yard is surrounding Proteksan & Turquoise's next largest yacht, the 72.67-meter "Vicky".

    It seems that this yard is building ever larger and they have projects still larger than Vicky in the works. Vicky was recently loaded into the outfitting shed where her bare shell of hull and superstructure will be full outfitted and finished until her scheduled launching. She is being built under the hull ID NB54 and has design styling by H2 Yacht Design and Naval Architecture in house at Proteksan & Turquoise. The interior is also by H2 Yacht and Design.

    The following is Vicky's classification ; LR X 100 A1 SSC, G6, XLMC, UMS. She is also MCA LY2 compliant. She already has her steel hull and aluminum alloy superstructure. She will have a very room beam of over 12-meters and a full load draft in the region of 4.00-meters.

    The 1,323-tonne yacht will feature a pair of 2,447 horse power engines expected to power her to a top speed of 17 knots with cruising near 15 knots. 7,000 nautical miles in range at 12 knots and throttle up to 15 knots it is reduced to a still impressive trans-Atlantic 4,000 nautical miles. 204,000 LT of fuel will be in her tanks. She is on course for completion at the end of 2012.
