Alia Yachts' 45-metre Project SAN has been sighted on sea trials ahead of her delivery later this month. She will make her international debut at this year's Monaco Yacht Show. 

The custom, all-aluminium superyacht was designed by Sinot, with naval architecture owed to Lateral Naval Architects.

Her exterior is characterised by a low, predatory superstructure with a raised pilothouse and sharp, clean lines. Initial images also show off her plumb bow and uncluttered deck space. 

The layout of Project SAN places increased focus on al fresco living, with a "fully open main deck all the way from the stern to the bow, without any major visual obstacles," according to Paul Costerus, partner and lead designer at Sinot.

"The exterior deck furniture is multi-functional," said Costerus. "Tables convert from a dining to an evening cocktail setup and sunbathing areas convert easily into intimate seating. The aft deck sunbathing area can be expanded by folding the bulwarks down, providing even more of an outdoor living space experience."

Imagery is undisclosed but her interiors have been described as "minimalist and detail-orientated", with full-height windows ensuring the yacht’s surroundings remain in focus. Accommodation is found on the lower deck, with a four-cabin layout that includes a generous owner’s cabin.

The yacht is powered by quadruple Volvo IPS drives

Shipyard president Gökhan Çelik said: "Based on an innovative and attractive design philosophy, Project SAN will further strengthen our pursuit to be recognised as one of the top custom yacht builders in the world by delivering such superior projects recognised worldwide."

This follows the Alia Yachts' partnership with Burgess on a custom 45-metre superyacht. The project will bring together H2 Yacht Design, Vickers Studio and Van Oossanen, with delivery scheduled for 2026.
