Tansu Panacea Refit

Delivered in 2009, the 20m TANSU  “Panacea” with steel hull and superstructure was sold to her new owners last year. It was a fun project, based on our early “Mission Class” designs developed together with our dear friend, Naval Architect Turhan Soyaslan.

She is about to complete her refit which included exterior and interior modifications designed by Tansu and engineered/project managed by Tufan and Brothers.

We would like to thank all involved and wish the owners a great season.

Second contract of 2017′s first quarter

Sexy Fish Returns from a succesful 4300 nm trip

 

39.3 m Sexy has Fish just arrived back in Yalıkavak, Turkey after completing a very busy first season totaling 4300 nm without any technical faults.

 

Captain Dylan Brown has commented:

“In 4 months including Monaco Yacht Show and a photo shoot in Cannes, myself and my crew are very pleased with the finish and performance of this vessel. During the season we have encountered all kinds of weather, the stand out day being 56 knots wind  with 4-5 meter waves crossing the Golf Du Lion, as you can imagine this was not a comfortable day, but she handled these trying conditions with ease, her stability at sea is greatly due to the new hull design which has been evolved from M/Y Nomade. I would like to thank Everyone at Tansu for delivering a beautiful seaworthy vessel and to my crew for all their hard work.”

 

A massive thank you to Captain Dylan Brown and all the crew – Cristina Opris, Dale Humphreys, Donovan Du Plessis, Valeria Sorochan.

39.3 m CUTLASS sold

Super yacht CUTLASS which was under construction on spec has been sold. A couple passionate about art and design has been attracted by the sharp lines of this series combined with the quality and award winning design synonymous with TANSU.

Hull number six of the Mothership series, semi displacement super yacht CUTLASS combines Dutch engineering with our recognised build quality. An original design concept by Tansu with Naval Architecture and engineering by Diana Yacht Design and Endaze, she is designed for cruising and living in great style.

Sales broker David Legrand of Fraser Yachts Monaco says:”Hot on the heels of the sale of BARTENDER earlier this year the sale of CUTLASS marks a new chapter in the continued success story and confirms the solid value of  Tansu Yachts in the current notable economic market. Providing the state of the art exterior and interior design by Riza Tansu, high quality construction, timely deliveries and reliable engineering, Tansu has proven itself as a world-class shipyard.”

NOMADE (NOW BARTENDER) AT MONACO YACHT SHOW

When the 36.4 m Nomade (now Bartender) was exhibited at the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show, the Super Yacht World especially took notice of TANSU. We defined our philosophy with the words “Huge Open Decks / Less Volume” and “Beach House Style” which has since become popular within in the industry and designers alike. Sold within 15 days of being placed on the market, the ShowBoats Design Award winner Nomade was an immediate hit at the Monaco Yacht Show and highly impressed all visitors.

After 5 successful seasons she was still a real Showstopper at the Monaco Yacht Show 2015.

She is for sale and the asking price is Eur 7.8M.

So’Mar is back from her 1800 mile shakedown cruise

After the initial sea trials off Tuzla, 37.9m So’Mar set off on an 1800 mile shakedown cruise to Manoel Island Marina, Malta and back to Turgutreis Marina, Bodrum.

She encountered heavy weather conditions of 45knot plus winds with 4-5m waves most of the time and got back to her home port without any problems.

Congrats to Capt. Ertan Begendi and his crew.

ONLY NOW is the WINNER

Our latest launch 33.9m Only Now was voted “Best Two-deck Semi-displacement or Planing Motor Yacht” at Boat International’s prestigious World Superyacht Awards 2013 in Istanbul last Saturday, May 4th. The judges noted that  : “Only Now, blended an attractively modern exterior style with an equally contemporary and well decorated interior, combined with quality construction and excellent deck spaces, made her a worthy winner.”

Last June, TANSU 36.4m Nomade (now Bartender) was the winner at 2012 ShowBoats Design Awards in Monaco. We are happy with two Neptunes in a row and would like to congratulate all involved.

NOMADE wins Gold Neptune

Nomade (Now Bartender) is the winner of ShowBoats Design Awards.

Interior Design award – Displacement Yachts 30-59.99m

“One of the most frequently quoted sayings in the world of design is “Less is more” – Advise that was uttered by the great German-American architect, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Mies would certainly have approved of Tansu’s design for the interior of Nomade, an explorer yacht that was recently sold to the owner of the super-racer Firefly as a mothership, and aptly renamed Bartender. This opinion was shared by the ShowBoats Design Awards Jury, who felt that the elegant minimalism, functionality and practicality of her interior eminently matched her new role. Light and airy interior spaces emphasize her volume, while her modern yet comfortable furnishings and finishes that blend contrasting gloss lacquer with “beach house style” oak floors provide particularly tasteful living spaces.”
