Turmoil is currently in Palma and up for sale. | Gabriel Alomar


The mega yacht Turmoil is currently in the Club de Mar is Palma and is apparently up for sale for around $48.5 million with the sale being handled by Camper & Nicholsons.

Turmoil 209ft was launched in 2006 by the shipyard Royal Denship and this mega yacht belonged to the late Gary Comer who founded the Lands’ End clothing company. Three months after taking delivery of Turmoil Gary passed away. The boat continued to be used by his family but it now appears to be up for sale. It can accommodate up to 12 guests and has a crew of 16.

When this yacht was constructed, great attention was placed on the crew who are treated like guests on board, with all of them having their own en-suite cabin.

As you sometimes hear "a happy crew means a happy boat and a happy owner", this philosophy was definitely taken into consideration.

There is one deck dedicated to Gary Comer which features aft master stateroom and a forward study with a 180 degree view.

The study has paintings of yachts, models of yachts and books of adventure, exploration, sailing. The yacht shows you what kind of a character the owner was and has a maximum speed of 16kts and a cruising speed of 14kts with a range of 6,500nm.

Turmoil joins the elite in the expedition class as a self-sufficient world explorer.
