Turkey’s first super luxury yacht is seen here at the Bandırma shipyard.

Turkey’s Altunbaş Turizm has manufactured Turkey’s first super luxury yacht, which took two years to build and cost roughly 35 million euros, according to the chair of Altunbaş Turizm.

“I didn’t shy away from any expense. Even before putting the yacht in the water, I have had offers both from within Turkey and abroad. If I get the price I am interested in, I could consider selling,” said Rüştü Altunbaş, referring to the yacht constructed by Egeria Yacht at the Bandırma shipyard in northwestern Turkey. He added that it had been his dream to build this kind of yacht. The yacht is 58 meters long and 10 meters wide. It has a master cabin, one VIP cabin and five guest cabins in addition to five cabins fit for ten staff members, a swimming pool, sauna, helicopter pad and fitness room.

So we weren't building megayachts before this one was made? A good first step.
