Turkish shipyard Alia Yachts has announced that a major construction milestone has been completed on its 60 metre project, with the keel having now been laid at the yard’s Antalya facility.

Dutch studio Vripack penned the interiors and exterior

The project has reunited the same build team that worked on the 55 metre Al Waab, comprising Dutch studio Vripack and the Dubai-based SF Yachts, which is acting as the owner’s representative.

According to Alia Yachts, the superyacht has been commissioned by “an experienced yachtsman who has owned numerous vessels of varying sizes over the past decade.”

Construction is now well underway at the shipyard

Vripack co-creative director Bart Bouwhuis said the owner intends to “cruise the seven seas together with their large family.”

“It’s fantastic to have the opportunity to bring an experienced owner’s globetrotting vision to life,” he added.

The five deck vessel features a "sprawling" beach club

Penned inside and out by Vripack, the yacht is designed for easy navigation and maintenance, with the galley and crew saloon found forward of the main deck. The main deck also features a technical room and side-loading tender garage.

Elsewhere, a “sprawling” beach club sits on the lower deck, complete with a massage room, dive store, gym and steam shower.

The project has a delivery date slated for 2024

An interior volume of more than 1000 GT offers accommodation in the form of two twin four VIP cabins. The master stateroom is located on the upper deck, complete with a walk-in wardrobe and private lounge and foredeck terrace.

An elevator meanwhile will connect all decks, rising from the lower deck to the sun deck.

This project will be similar in length to Alia Yachts' flagship, Samurai.

“Following the footsteps of Al Waab, we are happy to mark the ceremonial keel laying for this bigger project of over 1.000 gross tons and huge exterior spaces,” commented Alia Yachts’ president Gökhan Çelik.

“The owner and his family have some incredible travel plans on the horizon and we feel honoured to be trusted to make this into a reality for him,” added Çelik.

The owner plans to cruise extensively with his family

Alia Yachts currently has four projects under construction, with the Vripack 60M superyacht scheduled to hit the water in 2024.
