Articles Cantieri Navali Tureddi Group: The Rising Star Of Italian Luxury Yacht Construction

Making a bold move away from supplying yacht construction services for renowned Italian shipyards, to building luxury yachts under their own name, Tureddi are well positioned to become a key player in the Italian luxury yacht construction industry.

We were recently delighted to sit down with the President of the Tureddi board, and son of the company’s founder, Alessandro Tureddi. Discussing his family’s shipyard, their unique position in an often-impenetrable industry, and the recent addition of a 34 metre Tureddi new-build to the Ocean Independence sales fleet, below we offer some exclusive insights into the past, present and future of this fascinating brand.

 

OLD BUT NEW: THE BIRTH OF CANTIERI NAVALI TUREDDI GROUP

The inception of the Tureddi shipyard was inspired by a family with a passion for yachting. After 45 years of contract work, building luxury yachts for renowned Italian brands like Sanlorenzo, Codecasa, and Benetti, Tureddi have decided to branch out.

Having completed the build of 60 yachts, they now aim to construct a fleet of 30-60 metre semi-custom yachts under their family name. A daring step indeed, but one built on decades of experience and quality craftsmanship, they position themselves as a fresh, perhaps long overdue, new addition to the market.

 

DEFINING A UNIQUE SUPERYACHT BRAND

The business of superyacht construction in Italy, and Europe as a whole, is extremely competitive. Many brands have established their name over centuries and are now built upon their heritage and a legacy of quality yacht production. Tureddi, however, is carving out a new niche with its distinct approach.

While a new name for many, for those “in the know” Tureddi has played a key role in constructing some of the world’s finest superyachts over the past 45 years. Carrying out contract work for many of Italy’s most revered shipyards, Tureddi’s workforce have honed masterful shipbuilding skills and stand ready to show just what they can do with Tureddi’s new range of luxury yachts they have brought to market.

Focused on quality over quantity, Tureddi endeavours to offer a semi-custom platform that allows Owners to express their unique tastes and preferences to a level unlike many series-built yachts in the same size category. While they handle the naval architecture and exterior design, the interior of each yacht is completely customisable.

Differing from many yards who offer semi-custom yachts but with very limited customisation, Tureddi promises an entirely customisable interior. From layouts and the number of staterooms, to finishes and unique amenities, Owners are invited, and encouraged, to infuse their personalities into their superyacht’s interior design ethos.

 

MERGING TRADITION AND INNOVATION

With an English administrative and management head and the experience of Italian artisan work, Tureddi strikes a balance between tradition and innovation in a truly unique way. Their seasoned craftsmen carry decades of experience, respect tradition, and lead in quality yacht construction. Meanwhile, the young and creative managerial team based in London, along with the innovation, and design departments bring fresh perspectives.

Toeing the line with the most esteemed Italian yards, Tureddi boasts a robust in-house manufacturing system that provides an enviable degree of control over the production process. While many series-produced yachts will have up to 85% of their production outsourced, Tureddi controls a whopping 75% of production in-house, only opting to outsource the nitty-gritty of raw material production.

This control over all aspects of a yacht’s production translates to unparalleled customisation options for the Owner, and effectively bypasses the potential stumbling blocks and, subsequent delays, of outsourcing.

BLUPHIRE: THE 34M SUPERYACHT PROJECT

A true expression of everything Tureddi stands for, this 34m new-build project seamlessly blends cutting-edge technology with artisan craftsmanship. Designed by Christian Leyk, BLUPHIRE is low-slung, stylish, and sporty, while packing an impressive range and vast internal spaces. Perfect both as a refined Mediterranean open cruiser, BLUPHIRE stands out with several unique selling points.

One of the most striking features of BLUPHIRE is the glass salon, which opens up completely on both ends, redefining indoor/outdoor living. The yacht measures 34 meters in length with a waterline length of 27 meters, a beam of 6.9 meters, and a draft of 1.3 meters. It boasts a gross tonnage of 230GT, providing ample space and comfort.

BLUPHIRE is powered by two MAN V8 1000HP engines, offering a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 16 knots, with a range of 450 nautical miles at cruising speed. For those seeking higher performance, an alternative engine arrangement featuring two MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines can propel the yacht to a cruising speed of 25 knots and a maximum speed of 35 knots, with a range of 370 nautical miles at cruising speed.

BLUPHIRE is designed for the quintessential Mediterranean lifestyle, emphasising outdoor living and water activities. It features sleek, elegant lines, unhampered by the addition of a flybridge, making it the sports car of the sea. The yacht includes sun beds, easy water access, space for watertoys, a bar, and a well-laid-out living area that can be enjoyed both at anchor or underway.

Great attention has been paid to natural illumination and innovative lighting systems, as well as the use of new materials and natural air circulation. The main living area is welcoming, with a comfortable lounge, a dining area to starboard, and a bar to port. The pilot house is open and inviting, making it a favourite spot for guests even when not at the helm.

The foredeck features sun beds and seating that can become an extension of the living space, while the lower salon provides a cosy retreat with natural light. BLUPHIRE also ensures ample and well-equipped crew spaces for both work and relaxation.

Designed to intrigue the discerning and stand out without being ostentatious, BLUPHIRE can be customised to the Owner’s preferences, including colour schemes and details. It offers a refined yachting experience with a layout that allows for flexibility and a truly loft-like living area, both on deck and below.

At Ocean Independence, we are delighted to have a direct build slot on the 34 metre Turredi BLUPHIRE. So, if you are considering commissioning the build of a semi-custom luxury yacht in this size category, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
