New Proteksan-Turquoise build can be 203 feet, or 196 feet for easy access to St. Tropez.
April 12, 2013
The Proteksan-Turquiose shipyard in Turkey is advertising a new superyacht that will be available for delivery in 2016. Project NB57, as she’s currently known, is designed to be 203 feet long — but the LOA can be shortened to 196 feet if you’re worried about getting onto the docks at St. Tropez or St. Barth’s.
Broker Stuart Larsen at Fraser Yachts Worldwide in Fort Lauderdale is a joint agent for the sale. He says the full-displacement, steel-hull design has been specified with an elevator, tender garages and handicap access, all of which should add appeal to a variety of possible owners.
The beam on NB57 is expected to be 35 feet, and the yacht’s range has been pegged at 5,000 nautical miles. Displacement is more than 1,000 gross tons. Cruising speed is expected to be 14 knots, driven by a pair of 3512C Caterpillars.
Accommodations will include space for 12 guests and 15 crew. Classification will include MCA should the owner wish to offer the yacht for charter.
Asking price is €32.5 million, which is about $42.3 million at the current conversion rate. For more information, visit www.fraseryachts.com.
