The history of Turquoise Yachts goes back to the 1970s with the building of Turkey’s first yachts under the Proteksan and Turquoise brands. Since then, many superyachts ranging from 40-77m in length have been delivered to clients from the USA, UK, Europe and Russia.
In 2014, MB Holding became the majority shareholder in Turquoise Yachts, confirming the yard's position as a prestigious, innovative and eminently capable custom builder. To service customers, Turquoise has offices in Monaco and Fort Lauderdale, as well as offering full technical support from its Istanbul headquarters.
Turquoise Yachts has two shipyards, one in Istanbul at Pendik and the other in Kocaeli. The Pendik shipyard, used expressly for interior decoration and finishing work, is just a few minutes' drive from Sabiha Gokcen international airport.
The second shipyard is in Kocaeli, just across the bay from Pendik. Its main function is the completion of hull and superstructure work in steel and aluminium, as well as the installation of systems and machinery. The yard has the capability to build yachts up to 120m in length.
