Turkish Delight

In 1994, the 50-meter Turquoise (now La Naturalle Dee) hit the water and propelled Turkey into the world of megayacht construction. This January, 17 years later, Proteksan-Turquoise launched a 55-meter (181-foot) Turquoise (above) for the same owner. Her six staterooms and welcoming saloon and comfortable dining table (below) were designed to make her a hit on the charter market. Turquoise will be the first of three launches this year for the yard.
