Proteksan Turquoise launches ‘NB54’...

Recent Launches

At 72.6m, she’s the Turkish yard’s largest yet; and at 1,760GT she’s the largest to launch in the country.

JULY 2012

The 72.6m (238ft) steel/aluminium ‘NB54’ is the result of another collaborative effort between Proteksan Turquoise’s in-house naval architecture team and H2 Yacht Design, which handled her exterior and interior stying. Technically she is very similar to the yard’s 70.54m (231ft) Talisman C, which launched in spring '11. A defining feature of this latest completed project is the foredeck helipad.
And like Talisman C, NB54 has a top speed of 17 knots, delivered by twin 2,447bhp 3516B Cats. Her range is a 4,750nm at 15 knots but a massive 7,000nm range at a more sedate 12 knots.
She was built to Lloyd’s 100 A1 SSC Yacht Mono G6, LMC, UMS and MCA LY2.
