Partially Finished Sailing Vessel Gets New Life At Turquoise Yachts There is a sailing yacht under construction at Turquoise Yachts...yes Turkish premier builder Turquoise Yachts. That might sound odd that a company that is accustomed to building motor yachts is attempting to build a sailing yacht. Pause your thoughts for a second. The 51-meter aluminium sailing yacht actually did not originate at Turquoise but rather was started at a Dutch yard and Turquoise bought it. She was originally aimed to be a schooner but now will have a sloop rig with Dykstra Naval Architects in charge of that re-optimization.
