Proteksan-Turquoise Yachts was established by two leaders of Turkish Boat building Industry; Proteksan Yachts Inc. and Turquoise Yacht Construction. The yard was established in 1997 to start building the 50 meter M/Y Mosaique. Following the success of Mosaique, 10 other mega yachts, ranging from 40 to 58 meters have been delivered to their owners.
