Turkey is becoming one of the largest Superyacht builders in the world, and is constantly stepping up the quality to match those of other world- class builders, such as the Dutch and the Germans.
Turkey itself is becoming a powerhouse designed around carefully orchestrated Government financial plan. While some of Europe suffers financial difficulties, Turkey is maintaining a strong solid steady pattern of consistency. As far as yachts go, they have been involved for years and years in yacht building and design. They entered the World Megayacht business in a noticeable way in the 1980's and have steadily improved in quality ever since. With Shipyards like SUNRISE www.sunriseyachts.com, PROTEKSAN http://www.proteksan-turquoise.omc/, and RMK they make a clear and formidable mark on the yacht world marketplace. The results are such famous and notable Yachts as MALTESE FALCON http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9Mvu57FP3c NOURAH OF RIYADH A FANTASTIC SUPERYACHT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28rsY1bxLss and the sailing yacht NAZENIN built by the same RMK as Karia photoed here https://www.google.com/search?q=nazenin+v&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=OrV&tbo=u&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ei=SlT0UPryFu.
