Iconic Superyacht Completes Refit in Time for France Yacht Charter Season

Posted on

YACHT LAUNCH DETAILS

This gorgeous yacht launch was 2000.  Ninety-five meter (311 foot) motor yacht INDIAN EMPRESS then ranked among the 20 largest yachts in the world.  Sixteen years of wear and tear takes a toll on a superyacht.  After a record-setting refit, she returns to full glory.  Specifically in time for the upcoming charter season in the South of France.

 

AMAZING REFIT

Mark Berryman Design revamp of the interior created contemporary atmosphere.  A Turquoise Yachts refit in a record time of 6 months cost €6.4 million.

Originally built for a member of the royal Qatari family, yacht INDIAN EMPRESS was purchased by her current owner, Vijay Mallya in 2006, and ever since has enjoyed a stellar reputation as one of the largest yachts available for hire. She’s a fixture at celebrity-studded events such as the Monaco Grand Prix.

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

Jana Sheeder and her team at 1-800 Yacht Charters offer magnificent superyacht Indian Empress for hire for a maximum 12 guests, at a weekly rate of €750,000 plus running expenses (items such as food, alcohol, fuel, dockage, etc.). Sheeder was impressed by the quick turnaround at Turquoise.

“The owner’s extensive work brief required a very short turnaround time frame, and Mr. Karabeyoglu (the CEO of Turquoise) and his team are known for their speed and flexibility,” says Sheeder. “Being diligent in the design phase prior to the commencement of the refit allowed Turquoise to truly understand the owner’s desires and the instructions of the team at Mark Berryman.  Proper planning in advance helped Turquoise complete this major remodeling in record time.”

 

UPGRADES

The yacht upgrades are many. For instance, a remodeled bridge deck (where a large lobby was re-designed into a corridor). In addition, a new office with new walls.  Finally, a new fire alarm and sprinkler system.

UNIQUE

She remains a unique yacht. She exudes timeless design and an intriguing history.
