The latest addition to the Tansu fleet is 43.7m motor yacht Cyclone. Delivered in 2017, she was designed and built by Riza Tansu. Cyclone is a yacht destined to appeal to a younger generation of yacht buyers – unfussy, simple and spacious with a strong sense of identity. She is also an award-winning yacht, being crowned the winner of the 2018 Boat International Design and Innovation awards for yachts below 45m. Cyclone has been acclaimed for having bold lines together with sparseness of detail which impressed the judges.
The exterior of the yacht has sleek lines with the yards trademark military styling including silver topsides, an emphasis on straight lines and rectangular portholes. When Cyclone is docked alongside other motor yachts her large open aft deck is a stand out feature for alfresco living. When onboard the yacht the minimalist styling and open plan living creates an inviting sense of space.
Phil Duffy from Interface Marine surveyed Cyclone and noted, “After over ten years of surveying Superyachts, I was delighted to inform our client that the Tansu built Motor Yacht Cyclone was one of the best designed and quality built vessels I have inspected, Cyclone is the worthy winner of the Boat international design and innovation award 2018, and I look forward to seeing the next generation of Tansu Yachts.”
Cyclone’s guest quarters are below deck together with the galley and crew quarters. On the upper deck is the owner’s suite. Making the total capacity of the yacht eight guests and five crew members.
Coming in at well under 500GT means Cyclone eliminates the need for much of the red tape associated with having a larger vessel and is able to berth at most marinas and ports.
Cyclone was sold to new owners in 2018.
