Tansu Yacht’s new flagship, the 43.7-metre Cyclone, has been completed and is offered for sale. After four years of development, she will have her world première at the Monaco Yacht Show, to which she is now cruising from Istanbul.
In 2013, designer and yard founder Riza Tansu commented: “She will carry the same DNA as our previous boats, form will follow function, and in that way it will be a very typical boat for Tansu, but it will be our first 43 metre boat. It will be a great project.”
Cyclone is the product of yet another close collaboration of the Turkish yard with Dutch studio Diana Yacht Design, which applied its technical expertise to the yacht’s naval architecture, while exterior design and interior styling was developed in house by Tansu.
As for the yacht’s exterior, she boasts the yard’s trademark military styling, with sleek silver topsides an emphasis on straight lines and several rectangular portholes. The interior also features the typical characteristics often found on the brand’s most iconic vessels.
Onboard spaces offer plenty of possibilities to relax and enjoy life at sea. Al fresco relaxation areas include a foredeck seating area and a generous aft deck, which can also be used to carry two tenders measuring up to 6.2 metres (a special 6.2-metre Tansu edition Rupert R6 and a 4.2-metre Zodiac Pro Tender). Another remarkable feature is the yacht’s library, boasting a ceiling height of around three metres. “It will be a very nice, cosy feature of the boat,” added Tansu.
Accommodation onboard is provided for up to eight guests and five crew members. The interior is split across three decks, with the upper deck fully dedicated to the owner’s suite and the lower deck hosting the additional guest cabins (two doubles and a VIP), along with a large crew area up forward.
Cyclone is powered by two 1,900hp Caterpillar C32 diesel engines that propel her to a cruising speed of 16 knots, with a top speed of 21.7 knots. When trimmed back to ten knots she is capable of a maximum cruising range of 2,700 nautical miles.
