Magnolia Yachts has decided that what is old must become new again.
The fledgling Turkish yard, run by Yardimci Shipping Group, recently unveiled a new 79ft superyacht featuring a neoclassical design inspired by the traditional trawlers of yesteryear.

Sporting sporty exterior lines and naval architecture by Taka Yacht Design, Magnolia One exudes old-world charm while brimming with all the modern features one would expect. The vessel has been forged from laminated Mahogany Mahogany and combines a dark green hull with contrasting wood accents.
With a considerable beam of 21 feet, the yacht offers plenty of space on board and is much sleeker than any ordinary old fishing boat. Written by Asli Hotic and Atilla Eren, interiors are characterized by dark wood floors, light oak furniture and white paint.
In terms of accommodation, there is a full-beam owner’s suite, a forward VIP and a double cabin on the lower deck which can collectively accommodate up to six people. The crew quarters are also located on the lower deck and have two single cabins. All cabins are en-suite, natch.
On the main deck, a single corridor connects the flybridge to the wheelhouse, galley, crew mess and engine room. The wheelhouse, which connects to the foredeck through port and starboard doors, is fitted with a central rudder and navigation station and access to the foredeck. There is also a second cruise station above on the flybridge.
Outside, meanwhile, two wide side decks stretch from bow to stern to create a sense of flow around the superstructure. Aft, you’ll find a beach club with a versatile platform that can raise and lower on demand to create a walkway or waterside lounge. The aft main deck houses a shaded cockpit with a U-shaped sofa and a table for 12 people, while the sun deck is equipped with another alfresco dining area and bar.
As for the grunt, the 79ft is powered by twin Cummins 610HP QSM11 engines that promise a top speed of 14 knots and a range of 2,200 nautical miles at nine knots. Tenders and toys can be stored aft of the upper deck and deployed using the integrated telescopic crane.
Yardimci Shipping Group spent years building commercial vessels, but created Magnolia in 2019 with the goal of making custom luxury yachts. The yard has only delivered this one vessel, but another 134ft Explorer is currently under construction and is expected to be delivered in the second half of 2024. Stay tuned.
