Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts has earned a reputation for creating distinctive high-quality luxury yachts since their establishment in 1997, and the company gained international attention from the yachting industry with the launch of superyacht GO in 2018.
Featuring the exterior and interior styling of H2 Yacht Design with naval architecture from the shipyard, luxury yacht GO has received multiple awards for her styling and functionality, winning the categories for best ‘Main Salon‘, ‘Master Cabin‘ and ‘Power Yacht Over 60 Metres‘ at The International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2019, as well as becoming a finalist in a multitude of categories at the Boat International Design and Innovation Awards 2019.
At 76.8m/251.8ft she is currently the shipyard’s largest project to date and draws the gaze of onlookers with her Turquoise-coloured hull that contrasts beautifully with her curving white superstructure. A sleek profile and raked bow add to her photogenic appearance and stature as a thoroughly modern motor yacht.
Alfresco lounges, dining areas and sunbathing spots span all five decks, and the Owner and guests have such indulgent amenities as a sundeck swimming pool and a whirlpool separated by a waterfall, a flush foredeck with a Jacuzzi, sofa/sunbeds, a helipad and an enticing lower deck beach club that has a light-up bar, widescreen TV and fold-down side-terrace.
Going from tender to sundeck is effortless thanks to the lift (elevator) that connects all guest decks, however, if guests want to spend quality time together indoors then there is a great choice of amenities to while away the hours. Attached to the beach club is a spa massage area to ease weary muscles after a busy day of Scuba diving, with the equipment also stored on this deck for ease of access.
Above, the enchanting main salon is filled with sumptuous sofas for a quiet evening film on the widescreen TV. Pale wooden panelling complements the cream-coloured sofas and warm lighting, while the broad windows ensure that you never miss a sunset from the air-conditioned interior. The formal dining area forward is an elegant and memorable backdrop for any celebration: The circular dining table seats all 12 guests to an intimate meal and the contemporary artwork, mirrors and modern chandelier all add to the ambiance after dark.
The accommodation on board sleeps up to 12 guests across 7 pristine white cabins that benefit from plenty of natural light flooding through the broad windows. The Master suite on the upper deck forward in particular showcases the work of H2 Yacht Design when it comes to creating breath-taking functional environments: Opposite the king-size bed there is a drop-down widescreen TV, sofas and coffee tables are integrated into the curve of the perimeter whilst still retaining a sense of flow throughout the room, and curtain blinds add a homely touch while maintaining guest privacy.
The Master suite also joins effortlessly with the alfresco living area on the main deck forward, where there is a Jacuzzi, and a pair of plush sofa/sunbeds with drinks tables shaded by the bridge deck overhang to make an environment suitable for use at all times of the day and in all but severe weather conditions.
M/Y GO has an impressive engine room to match her splendid aesthetics, and a pair of Caterpillar 3516C diesel engines producing 2,575 HP and propelled by her twin screw propellers give her a top speed of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 15 knots and an extensive cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles for chasing that Mediterranean sunset.
