The multi award winning MY La Passion offers sophisticated lines and state-of-the-art with well proven systems that are sure to stand the taste of time, built by Sarp Yachts.

46m Motor Yacht As the kick-off project of brand new Sarp Yachts, we had to create a motor-yacht which would stand the test of time.

The intention for the design was to give character to the vessel in every possible setting she may sail to. For this her lines had to be nicely flowing, well-proportioned and fresh.

Her shape and size are carefully refined to stay just below the 500 gross ton mark. Steel was the obvious choice for a strong and reliable hull with ample tank capacity. However we opted for epoxy composite to construct our curvy superstructure. By this way, we could save weight from superstructure and fairing compound. All these became a reality thanks to the diligence and experience of our yard manager Emre Sandan and his team.

Her hull was analysed in depth by CTO of Gdansk using cfd and tank test methods for low resistance and reduced wave profile. Watertight integrity was paramount in our design agenda, hence we have incorporated at least two additional watertight bulkheads and cofferdams into our hull structure. On the other hand many hours were spent honing the styling with 3d design tools. Even a scale model was built to iron out any discrepancies. With our in house design and engineering team each stage of outfitting is carefully planned and executed ensuring a quality level enviable even by established European yards.

We have approached a relatively young but very well established designer to be the chef of our interior. Adam Lay’s yet another innovative, natural and welcoming interior creation will be manufactured by another industry legend, Hasan Ulutaş. There are obviously many trades that I cannot list here, but I can see into the future assured of success because we have convened the best possible team under the Sarp umbrella.

Normally building a custom yacht in Turkey is very good value for money, but this is not enough for our dreams. We have set ourselves a philosophy to pursue the best of quality and attain the top finish.

Created by Adam Lay Studio, the interior of Sarp Yachts’ new 46m motor yacht blends loft apartment styling and mountain chalet influences with a combination of high end natural timber and metal finishes. The aim was to produce a sophisticated and elegant interior, interwoven with clean simplicity of design that results in an inviting, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.

Taking inspiration from natural materials and textures, open grained planked wooden floors, quality leathers and intricatemetal detailing produce a distinguished colour palette of rich dark bronzes, silvers and grey stained ash veneer. The theme is extended throughout the yacht. Large screens feature in the main saloon entrance with petrified patterned leaves set between sheets of clear glass. Wall finishes are a balance of wooden planks and pewter coloured slubby silk wall paper. Customised to suit the décor in each cabin, satin nickel door and cabinet hardware add a touch of refined sparkle to the calm and comfortable backdrop. Honed stone tiles and flooring in the bathrooms compliment the fine Dornbracht tapware and accessories. Pebbles inlayed into the bathroom floor add further texture. Well chosen furniture includes Minotti sofas, Glyn Peter Machin and Giorgetti chairs. Superior fabrics by Rubelli, Weitzner, Lelievre, Chase Erwin, Romo, Kravet and Armani Casa tie the interior together with highlights of bright colour, bold graphics and accents. Intended to make a sophisticated statement with a strong visual impact, the outcome is a wonderful marriage of harmonious and clean lined design combined with subtle textures, tones and finishes that delight the senses.
