Project Orca, a 44m yacht by Tansu Yachts and Diana Yacht Design


tansuTansu Yachts is currently working at a new 44-metre yacht, after contracting with the owner at the end of last year.
Orca is being designed in collaboration between the Turkish shipyard’s in-house design team and Diana Yacht Design,  a Dutch studio with thirty years of experience in designing durable and classic vessels which has already being collaborating with Tansu for the past years. While the Tansu design team is working on the exterior styling, Diana Yacht Design is taking care of the architectural and engineering studies for the project.
The 44 metre Project Orca will have an unusual layout designed exclusively for the lifestyle of the client. The yard is working closely with the owner to design a custom boat that completely suits his love for fishing. The vessel’s layout will feature four guest cabins to accommodate up to 10 guests.
Her construction will be undertaken using the wood epoxy saturation technique, which Tansu also used for previous smaller models such as the 33.9-metre Only Now, the 37.6-metre So’mar, and the 38.7-metre Alyssa. This new 44-mettre wood epoxy superyacht will be the largest project ever undertaken by Tansu.
As for expected performance, Project Orca will be able to reach a top speed of 16 knots. Her build is expected to start in March 2016.
Tansu has been building many vessels under 30m during its twenty years of activity, but it only recently –in 2011- entered the superyacht market with the delivery of 35.2m Ceylan.
The yard has now five superyachts in its fleet and four more under construction, ranging from 38 to 44 metres, two of which are scheduled for delivery this year: this shows how Tansu is becoming more and more active in the Turkish market and has got the joint highest number of orders on its books, alongside Turquoise Yachts.
