Turquoise Yachts is collaborating with DeBasto Design on a new 62- meter (203-foot) explorer yacht called Project Nautilus.

Nautilus is a new and a different kind of explorer yacht well adapted to its intended life as a go-anywhere vessel, offering the best interior accommodations, an extremely functional layout and all the facilities and amenities that one can expect only on much larger yachts.
DeBasto Design is responsible for both exterior styling and interior design.


As a basic design decision, the tender deck is located at the front of the superstructure which allows for a complete separation between guests and services.

This deck is 13.4 meters (nearly 43-foot) long comfortably allowing the stowage of an up to 12-meter (39-foot) tender, which is uncommon on a 62-meter (203-foot) yacht.

“Naturally, we had to make accommodations for some professional grade cranes, says Luiz DeBasto, founder of DeBasto Design. “To avoid a cargo ship industrial look, which would be inevitable using regular off-the-shelf cranes, I have ensured that the cranes are part of the superstructure, integrated into the overall design, a unique and revolutionary solution. If you look at the profile, you will be hard pressed to spot the cranes.”

DeBasto adds, “Although almost invisible at first sight, there’s no compromise in the capacity of these two cranes, each one is capable of lifting 10,000 kgs (22,000 lbsmaste).
These cranes are engineered to provide safe launch and recovery of boats or submarines, or sailing vessels, or cars, or…whatever is within the 10,000 kg weight parameters.”

With the tender deck located forward, DeBasto placed the Owners’ stateroom on the Upper Deck facing forward above the open space-a glass shape projecting over the bow, surrounded by two exterior terraces. Another unique solution for an Owner’s stateroom, is the absolutely spectacular 270 -degree views of the horizon, even from the bed… in total privacy.

Additionally, there are five guest staterooms, a full-size movie theater (that can optionally be converted to a 7th guest cabin), a swimming pool on the aft main deck and a full Beach Club on the Lower Deck aft, with safe access from the interior of the boat.

Two-fold- down balconies enlarge the Beach Club area to provide close access to the water. To complete the wellness area, there is a Gym and a Sauna.
