CYCLONE in Rapallo after a 1400NM super successful shakedown cruise


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”
