Mengi Yay’s first two hulls from the yard’s Virtus range that are currently in build have been sold thanks to David Legrand of Fraser representing the sellers in both deals. The two units are expected to be delivered to their new owners in 2022 from the yard in Turkey.

The yachts will be able to accommodate up to 10 guests across five staterooms and host seven crew members.

Performance-wise, the Virtus model has a high propeller clearance that reduces vibration and noise as well as two pairs of zero speed stabilisers. A twin propulsion system allows the yacht to cruise comfortably at 12 knots and reach speeds of up to 14.5 knots.Photo: Mengi Yay YachtsA third hull is in-build and is currently for sale.
