Following an extensive interior refit, the stunning luxury charter yacht TURQUOISE has embarked on a successful 2014 Mediterranean charter season. The 55.4m (181.9ft) superyacht has a dramatically new look, with a re-designed interior and sun deck by award-winning H2 Yacht Design. Built by Proteksan Turquoise in 2011, the vessel offers contemporary sophistication with understated touches of glamour.

Whether cruising with family and friends or hosting formal gatherings on board, TURQUOISE is already a popular choice with experienced charterers. The main reception areas carry a relaxing colour palette of silver, cream, white, grey and subtle turquoise tones which blend seamlessly with a myriad of unexpected textures and beautiful fabrics, enhanced by glossy Ebony Macassar wood.

The main saloon features velvet embossed sofas, dark maple armchairs with textured white leather, Ralph Lauren floor lamps and lacquer coffee tables in shagreen and stingray-effect leather. Silk curtains and roman blinds, Calvin Klein scatter cushions and customised hand tufted wool carpets complete the open plan area with its formal dining room for 14 guests. Housing a full-size cocktail bar, TURQUOISE’s main saloon leads out to a new outdoor cinema on the aft deck where modular furniture can be coordinated into an expansive seating plan to suit any occasion. The more informal but equally stylish sky lounge casts plenty of natural light and houses a grand piano and large plasma screen with comfortable seating. Doors slide open onto the large, shaded aft deck dining area which also features banquette seating around the stern.

The yacht’s six guest cabins are designed around a soothing decorative theme and provide elegant accommodation for 12 guests. Approached via a private study forward on the main deck, the master suite has been reconfigured to maximise space and features Shoji screens, leather wall panels and a full-width white marble bathroom, complete with tub and rain shower. Also housed on the main deck, the VIP suite has earthy-hued soft furnishings, mother of pearl detailing and an en suite marble bathroom. On the lower deck, four further en suite guest cabins are configured as two doubles, one twin and a double that converts to a twin if required. 

The remodelled sun deck now provides plenty of shaded dining, a large plasma screen, a bar and a barbecue to complement the jacuzzi and expansive cushioned sun pad area.

TURQUOISE is equipped with the latest audio visual systems throughout and carries a wide inventory of water toys, including two 2-man high speed waverunners, Seabobs, waterskis, sea kayaks, protected sea pool with trampoline and waterslide, paddle boards, snorkelling gear and more. Children are well catered for and the yacht is proving to be very popular with families.

British captain Ben Craig-Cameron has an impressive 20 years of professional yachting experience in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, and leads a carefully hand-picked crew of 12 with excellent credentials and boundless enthusiasm. Following the 2014 Mediterranean season, TURQUOISE will be available for charter over winter 2014/2015 in the Caribbean.

Charter rates:
Summer 2014: from EUR 266,000 per week
Winter 2014/2015: from USD 294,000 per week
