Alia Yachts signs 55m Project Al Waab II

Turkish yard Alia Yachts has signed a contract to build a 55 metre superyacht named Project Al Waab II.

Details remain sparse about the sub-500GT superyacht which will feature interior and exterior design by Vripack, which also developed the naval architecture and engineering.

SF Yachts is coordinating the project on behalf of the owner.

Chief executive of SF Yachts Francesco Pitea said: “I am very pleased to be part of this 55 metre yacht project and look forward to building it alongside Vripack and Alia Yachts shipyard.”

The yard said more information about the project would be revealed at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

The contract follows a spate of news from the shipyard, which recently announced it had begun construction on Nozomi II, the 32.4 metre sistership of the yard’s Virgen del Mar VI.

The yard is also set to physically triple in size with the completion of a new 16,000 square metre facility. This will allow the yard to focus more on the refit sector and accommodate larger projects.
