Alia Yachts has revealed their latest 60 metre superyacht, launched recently from their facilities in Antalya, Turkey. Featuring naval architecture from Van Oossanen Naval Architects, exterior design from Omega Architects and interior design from Redman Whiteley Dixon, she has been christened Samurai.
The design features strong horizontal lines as well as an organic evolution of the wheelhouse deck superstructure into the aft overhang of the main deck. She is based on the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) from Dutch brand Van Oossanen Naval Architects, allowing previously unmatched efficiency throughout the power curve, while enabling a top speed of 21 knots.
Inside, Alia has successfully developed a sophisticated high volume yacht with powerful styling. The interior volumes are extremely generous, with one of her highlights certainly being the great synergy between inside and outside, creating interesting and refreshing spaces.
The interior layout is equally innovative with guest cabins and large master suite located together on the main deck along with the main saloon and dining, creating an ambiance reminiscent of a contemporary luxury residence. Both the owner’s suite and guest cabins are located forward on this deck, with the owner’s suite benefiting from full height windows which flood the area with natural light and provide spectacular views.
The main saloon allows panoramic views on the water by means of full height wrap-around windows and well-detailed glass bulwarks at the side. The fully functional lower deck accommodates all crew accommodation, main galley and storages forward as well as the engine room and the tender garage. At sea level an elegantly designed beach club and comprehensive gym are found.
Samurai also comes with a custom built 7 metre Smuggler tender, as well as a 6.3 metre Smuggler tender. In regards to her performance, she is powered by twin MTU 16V4000 M73L engines of 2,880 kW each, providing her with a top speed of 21 knots and a range of 4,250 nm.
