Turquoise Yachts completes successful refit of 95-meter Indian Empress in record time

TURQUOISE YACHTS COMPLETES REFIT OF INDIAN EMPRESS

Indian Empress, the iconic 95-meter motoryacht, built by Oceanco in 2000, has undergone an extensive 6.4 million euro refit at Turquoise Yachts at their Pendik facility in Istanbul.

 

 

 

Originally built for a member of the royal Qatari family, Indian Empress was purchased by the current owner in 2006. In addition to being extensively operated privately, the yacht has also been a very popular charter yacht.

In 2014, Mark Berryman Design was engaged to thoroughly revamp the interior and make it more contemporary. The extensive work brief required a very short turn around time frame. The owner’s team trust­ed Turquoise Yachts to make it happen.

Mehmet Karabeyoğlu, CEO of Turquoise, said, ”Apart from our experience and expertise, what we brought to the party was speed and flexibility. The owner wanted the boat for summer use, which gave us a narrow window of opportunity to finish the project. New ideas and alterations kept flooding in after work had commenced. Our ability to make decisions on the spot and adapt quickly without reams of red tape was key to the speed and success of the refit.”

Indian Empress has been chosen as a 2016 finalist by Boat International Media’s “The World Superyacht Awards” in their “Refitted, rebuilt and converted” category. 

The winner will be announced on May 14, 2016 in Florence, Italy at a gala cere­mony. Turquoise Yachts is honored that its refit work on Indian Empress is in esteemed company with other notable yachts that are in the same category.
