Newthex designs full scope of hull doors for Turquoise Yachts’ NB69

The 75-metre superyacht NB69 will sail with nine hull doors from Newthex. In august this year Turquoise Yachts announced the sale of project NB69 with the ship just being ready for the installation stage at Pendik shipyard. With the sale its new owner was just in time to change the layout of one of its beachclub doors which suited its owner and guests more by creating a larger and more generous full-beam beach club.


Open feel beach club

Eyecatcher of the vessel is the large beach club with multiple openings. To realize an ‘open feel’ the transom door in open position “disappears” under a large hatch in the aft deck. To hide the transom door first the deck hatch has to open, after which the transom-door rotates downwards to be covered again with the deck hatch.


To obtain this spacious beach club the shell doors on each side of the vessel extends the living area and brings the guest closer to the sea. Newthex designed two aluminum platform doors located on both the port and starboard side of the vessel. Both doors are approximately 4 metres wide.



Two tender garage doors

To accommodate all the support vessels including an 10.2-metre limousine tender, a multi-purpose guest tender, a rescue/crew tender and several jet skis Newthex designed an 11 meters wide garage door located mid-ship and 2 tender doors of respectively 5.5 and 8.5 meters in the forward end of the yacht for save loading on both sides of the superyacht.


All nine hull doors are currently being fitted at Pendik shipyard. Delivery of MY NB69 is scheduled towards the end of 2021. Newthex also designed and delivered thirteen watertight Next doors for this Turkish build superyacht designed by A.Vallicelli & C. yacht design.
