The 184 ft Classic expedition motor yacht 'Blue II’ was launched this week at Turquoise Yachts in Istanbul who built her. She is a unique new concept of a great timeless looking classically styled motor yacht that will surely turn heads.
She is built to the highest quality standards and has many unique technical features such as diesel electric propulsion, side boarding platforms, underdecks storage of two large tenders and is built to Ice class.
She is the first yacht at the yard built to the new emission standards from IMO and therefore has a Urea system that reduces the NOx exhaust levels.
Hoek Design did the exterior styling, naval architecture and interior design and the John Vickers studio in London did the interior styling with soft furnishings by Dolls.
Master Yachts of Mallorca acted as owners representatives.
Congratulations to the team at Turquoise Yachts who did a great job building her!
