Vripack has released renderings of the 78-foot explorer yacht Rock, which is under construction at the Turkish shipyard Evadne and scheduled for launch in early 2018.

"When I began to ideate the motoryacht Rock concept, my utmost concern was how to make a sturdy and rugged yacht with sex appeal," yacht owner Ali Sayakci stated in a press release. "Many of the practiced explorer concepts did not meet the aesthetic and technical criteria I was looking for. Their designer, Robin de Vries of Vripack, introduced us to the concept of a SUV yacht, and it was love at first sight."

Rock has a fast-displacement hull and twin 1,000 hp Caterpillar diesels, with an expected top speed of 16 knots.

Project management is by Tufan and Brothers in Turkey.

Did you know? Vripack, Evadne and Tufan and Brothers have collaborated on smaller yachts for years.
