At this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, Alia Yachts has announced the sale of a 36-metre shadow vessel to serve the 55-metre Project Phi currently in build at Royal Huisman as of February 2019. The contract was signed in August for an expected delivery during 2021.

Rover and boasts naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, a long-term partner of Alia Yachts. The fast-displacement hull will be used for transporting tenders and toys, as well as a small car and extra fuel for the mothership to extend its range. It will also feature a large laundry and additional crew accommodation.Photo: Royal Huisman Shipyard“This is a very interesting project for us which we foresee will provide a platform that can be adapted to meet the needs of other superyacht owners,” says Alia’s CEO Gökhan Çelik. “The principal challenge is that it has to be very fast but also versatile and efficient. I’m particularly proud because the owner decided to build with us after visiting the shipyard and seeing the quality work we do.”
More details about this vessel will be released during the next months.
