Turquoise Yachts has presented a 61 metre concept called Echo, designed by Canadian studio ER Yacht Design.
The yacht’s design centres around a contemporary profile with tapered aft decks, long lines of glazing and a distinctive reverse bow.
The first collaboration between Turquoise and ER Yacht Design, Echo has been described as having “restrained flair and unrestrained performance” by the shipyard.
Accommodation for 12 comprises six guest cabins on the main deck and a full-beam master that occupies the complete upper deck – all with generous glazing that stretches almost full-height. A further seven cabins are allocated for 14 crew below deck.
In terms of alfresco space, Echo benefits from a six-metre pool on the aft and a generous bow area with space for up to 35 guests on an entertaining area on the upper deck.
Other features include a staircase that connects the main deck to the upper deck, which has been conceived to be a “feature” as opposed to an “obstacle”.
“It has been our utmost pleasure developing this unique and extraordinary design for Turquoise Yachts,” said Ivan Erdevicki, president of ER Yacht Design. “The elegance and simplicity with sculpted services around hull and superstructure openings provide distinctive character.”
Key numbers include a beam of 10.5 metres, a draft of 2.7 metres and a GT of 899.
Echo has a cruising speed of 17 knots and can reach up to 27 knots and she is envisioned with twin 1080kw engines.
