Esenyacht, the Bodrum-based builder of custom superyachts, has published first images of the 50-metre sailing yacht Troy, currently in build at the yard. The project is expected to be completed in late 2014.

With exterior styling and interior design by Tim Saunders working in conjunction with Esenyacht’s own design team, Troy will have accommodation for 12 guests and nine crew members. The spaces below decks will feature long flowing lines.

Materials used will include marble from Esenyacht’s own quarry in central Anatolia and fine leathers sourced from suppliers to some of the top Italian luxury brands. This is in keeping with the Esenyacht ethos of uncompromising attention to detail and, as with the marble, the use of its own expertise and resources wherever possible.

Troy is performance sailing yacht designed for competitive regatta racing as well as luxury cruising, and follows on from Esenyacht’s inaugural project Glorious, a 36m sailing yacht launched in 2011 that is currently chartering in the Mediterranean.

“We prefer the sense of personalisation that comes with our approach to building one-off yachts,” says general manager Deniz Can. “The consistency that comes with high quality craftsmanship from one’s own workshops never goes out of fashion.”
