Troy Progressing at Esenyacht
The ancient city of Troy is already a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s being paid further honors through the construction of Troy, in build at the four-year-old Esenyacht. The 155-foot (47.25-meter) single-masted sloop is in the midst of receiving her interior, which will have many remarkable details depicting warriors waging battle.
Troy is being built to lines penned by Tim Saunders Yacht Design and a hull design by Dykstra Naval Architects. Though she has a steel hull, she has a composite superstructure. Her mast also features compositecarbon fiber. Rather than being made by a subcontractor, though, the mast is being manufactured on site at Esenyacht’s facility in Bodrum, Turkey. In fact, Esenyacht remodeledlengthened a build shed to accommodate the 207-foot-tall (63-meter-fall) mastthe ovens necessary to cure it, plus additional composite components. That same shed is to be responsible fadvanced-composites manufacturing of hatches, superstructures,more ffuture projects as well.
