Turkish yard Alia Yachts has launched and delivered a 27 metre chase boat named Atlantico which will serve the 55 metre CRN superyacht Atlante.
Built to a full-aluminium design by Stefano Pastrovich, Atlantico has been specifically designed to “echo” the profile of the mothership. Key features include aft bulwarks, which fold down to extend the main deck beach club and maximise contact with the sea.
Elsewhere, Atlantico features large windows, continuous teak decking and a “minimalist, open plan interior”. Accommodation is for four guests in two “stylish” cabins, while three Volvo Penta IPS engines provide a top speed of 35 knots.
Speaking about the yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show, Alia Yachts president Gokhan Celik said: “This is a very cool full-aluminium yacht. The owner wants to use it as a fast day boat for exploring remote places or accessing secluded beaches.”
The yard also revealed it is now developing a 40 metre version based on the same concept which will operate as a standalone superyacht.
More details about the concept are set to be revealed in the coming months.
