SCA Yachting is making a statement with its foray into the boatbuilding business.

In partnership with Turkish luxury yacht builder Fuat Turan, the motorized wooden sailer will be built at Cavusoglu Shipyard, which specializes in wood epoxy laminate construction.

“We prefer wood for the Boa Kingdom because of its remarkable fatigue resistance, ensuring longevity,” said SCA Yachting founder Cenk Avdan in a statement.

“Also, wood is the most environmentally friendly option and does not harm the health of people on board. At SCA Yachting, we will continue to support wood as our material of choice.”

Details are scant, as Boa Kingdom is a private commission. But it’s reported that the vessel will feature accommodations for up to 12 guests and seven crew, over 3,700 square feet of outdoor living space, a 172-square-foot swimming platform, and a 900-foot-plus flybridge.
