Memorable not only for its appearance but also its eco-friendly, energy-saving measures, the 115-foot Tortoise superyacht is currently available for charter in the West Mediterranean.
Built in 2015, Tortoise is one of the most modern yachts in the global chartered fleet. Aiming to reduce the carbon footprint of superyachts, Arcadia Yachts designed Tortoise with double-glazed solar panels and a fibreglass hull for hydrodynamic efficiency. Switching to the hybrid propulsion engine can achieve up to 8 knots without creating emissions or noise pollution.
Her eco-friendly choices have not come at the expense of luxury: Designer Poltrona Frau has created a stunning modern Mediterranean appearance inside and out by complementing Italian-made dark wood with pale leather and fabric upholstery. Floor to ceiling glass panels provide panoramic views which allows sunlight to stream into the interiors from dawn until dusk.
Tortoise can accommodate up to 12 guests in its six cabins: three double cabins, two twin cabins and one master suite. The television room and gym will provide guests with plenty to do when not playing with the variety of water toys, which include water skis, a WaveRunner and wakeboard. Guests will also enjoy their own private verandas and the intimacy of the deck Jacuzzi, saloon and bar.
Tortoise is currently available for charter in the West Mediterranean for approximately $125,000 per week, plus expenses.
