53-meter Tala progressing at pace at Turquoise Yachts

At Turquoise Yachts, construction is well underway for the new 53-meter motoryacht Tala. With hull and superstructure completed and interior work in process, she is taking form. Both her exterior styling and interior design are by the renowned Miami-based studio DeBasto Designs.

At 700 GT, Tala offers an extraordinary amount of interior and exterior space commensurate with yachts that are usually much larger. She offers 6 + 1 guest staterooms, while the exterior deck areas are spacious and designed for entertainment of both big groups and for intimate gatherings of 2 to 4 people. “No one will feel lost,” says Luiz DeBasto. The Sun Deck offers around- the- clock entertainment with a hot tub, sun-pads, TV, day head, bar, BBQ and acres of open space.

“With Tala’s enormous volume …my objective was to make the exterior less bulky and give a feeling of a forward dynamic movement, rather than a static feel,” says Luiz DeBasto. “I wanted the design to show movement and purpose from any angle. I achieved this with the long ascending line from the swim platform all the way up to the mast and down to the pilothouse windshield.”

Some of Tala’s highlights include a substantial swim platform that make it easy for ingress and egress from tenders. There's also a Beach Club inclusive of a gym and sauna. The Owner's stateroom and VIP suite are forward on Main Deck. Traffic circulation between guests and crew are completely separated on all decks, including discreet access on Lower Deck between the Laundry and the Guest's area. Crew accommodations for 10 are on the lower deck and there is a Captain's cabin on the Upper Deck next to the pilothouse.

For the interior design DeBasto works with his in-house team, led by his wife, Cristina DeBasto. Tala is sophisticated but practical as well as elegant and comfortable. Her interior is bright on account of the large windows, light colors juxtaposed with semi precious woods and materials as contrasting accents. Each space including the ceilings combines varietal materials and use linear and indirect lights to define geometry and shape.
