The first of Tansu Tigershark Class, Superyacht Ceylan was delivered in 2010. After 8 years she was listed for sale with Baris – Alev Semiz of Sofi Yacht Charter & Brokerage, with Alain Auvare of Onboard Yachting introducing the buyer. The asking price was €6,450,000. Another successful deal proving our high resale value. Thanks to everyone involved and wishing all the best to the new owners.
Cyclone has won the Golden Neptune in her category, “Best Exterior Styling – Motor Yachts Below 45m” in Boat International’s Design and Innovation Awards 2018. The award ceremony was held in Kitzbühel, Austria. We would like to thank all involved. Below is the Judges’ comment about Cyclone:
“You can’t mistake the hand of Riza Tansu in Cyclone’s bold lines evoking comparison with minesweepers and fast coastal patrol cutters as this signature look has brought this designer/builder prizes on previous occasions. But on top of the sparseness of detail and clean horizontal lines, this year judges noted a softer side to the styling with a bit more rake to the bow that reverses at the top to create a touch of tumblehome and a hint of a sheer curve as it moves aft. The design continued to impress the judges with introduction of sloped forward glass on two decks and the absence of eyebrows altogether. The superstructure is nicely integrated within the profile and provides plenty of both open and protected outdoor living space while actually increasing the interior volume available to the owner.”
Following an intensive sea trial period in Istanbul, the 43,7m CYCLONE has arrived in Rapallo, Italy. Her Mediterranean season will start with the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix. Later she will be cruising around Costa Smeralda, Capri, Amalfi Coast and Balearic Islands before attending the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show.
Captain Dylan Brown commented: “Once again myself and crew including Engineers from Tansu found ourselves heading towards Europe on Tansu’s new build M/Y Cyclone. Crossing from Turkey in late December always brings a mixture of weather and we found ourselves in 45kts wind, 3,5 Meter waves to flat calm seas. Throughout all conditions the vessel preformed beyond all of my expectations and handled rough to calm seas with ease. During our journey of 1400NM we experienced no technical or mechanical faults and are now berthed in Rapallo, Italy. Tansu yachts can be proud of the build and finish of Cyclone and she will be a great presence in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Thank you to all involved in getting Cyclone to Europe and my crew for their dedication and hard work”
Frankfurt am Main, October 2017. TANSU is one of the winners of German Design Award 2018 in the category Excellent Product Design, Transportation with Sexy Fish.
The German Design Award is the top international prize of the German Design Council. Its goal: to discover, present and honour unique design trends. Therefore, every year, top-quality entries from product and communication design are rewarded, all of which are in their own way ground-breaking in the international design landscape. Launched in 2012, the German Design Award is one of the most well-respected design competitions in the world and is held in high regard well beyond professional circles.
After the sale and subsequent launch of 39.3 m Sexy Fish (Along with a lovely Neptune from ShowBoats Design Awards) and the recent launch of 38.4 m Highlight, we currently have 6 projects in the pipeline.
39.1 m Echo-R will be launched in June. 43.7 m Cyclone will be launched in the end of July and will be presented in Monaco Yacht Show 2017.
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.
We are happy to announce our new contract for a 34.6 m Tansu Mission Class yacht, code named CV114.
She is designed to suit her owners’ requirements such as a huge boat deck for a Rupert R8 and other toys, a master stateroom on the upper deck, loft style open salon featuring transparent staircase etc.
The owner is a world renowned master craftsman who is a long time fan of our yachts. As usual CV114 is a Tansu design inside out with the exceptional Naval architecture and engineering of our dear friends at Diana Yacht Design.
38.4 m Highlight undergoing extensive speed, vibration, noise, endurance and propulsion tests near Tuzla / Marmara sea. All going great and she made the light ship top speed of 16.1 kts.
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.

36.4m Bartender (Ex-Nomade), listed for sale by Edmiston & Company and Northrop & Johnson has been sold with David Westwood at Worth Avenue Yachts introducing the buyer and Derk Jan Rolff acting on behalf of the seller. She was launched in 2011 and the asking price was Eur 7.8 million. Congratulations to all involved !

Design is completed and sent over to our dear friends at Diana Yacht Design for the final Naval Architecture and Engineering studies.The construction is planned to start in March 2016.
In 1996, Riza Tansu started working with Stephen Seaton on his first yacht 23.60 m Troy Explorer. After an intense preparation period in USA, working on the design and naval architecture with Stephen, Riza started building his first yacht for his family.
Here’s how it all started:
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.

Only Now was in Monaco last week for Boat International’s Rendezvous in Monaco. Thanks to Boat International for the wonderful event.
Nomade (Now Bartender) at Porto Cervo, Sardinia during The Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, on June 4-8, 2013.
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.
Tansu Yacht’s latest launched project Only Now is selected for “Short List” at the very top events of Super Yacht World.
Only Now is nominated for the “Best Two-deck Semi-displacement or Planing Motor Yacht” at The World Superyacht Awards 2013 and also “Exterior Design and Styling Award – Semi-displacement Motor Yachts” at The Show Boats Design Awards 2013.
One of the world’s finest yacht photographers Marc Paris died in an airplane crash during a photo shoot in Antalya. Marc’s work on Nomade and Only Now were typical examples of his unique and sharp style. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.
Tansu secured 3 build contracts for 37.6 m So’Mar, 38.75 m Alyssa and 39.3 m Cutlass. After great success on the previous project Only Now, Tansu has once again appointed Diana Yacht Design for Naval Architecture of all 3 projects. As always Design Concept, Exterior Styling and Interior Design by Tansu.
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.”
Nomade is sold by David Legrand at Fraser Yachts with independent broker Derk Rolff introducing the buyer. The new owner, founder of a successful fashion brand, was looking for a support vessel for his fast sailing yacht, 115ft Firefly. He chose Nomade for her contemporary style and expansive deck areas.
