Squalo Trenta: Alpha Custom Yachts shares new video of 29.6m shark-inspired design

27 January 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Alpha Custom Yachts has provided a closer look at its new model, Squalo Trenta, in a new video. The 29.6-metre semi-custom model takes its name from the Italian word for ‘shark’ and there are currently three units in production with delivery scheduled for July, August and December 2023.

With a wide beam of 7.6 metres and a draft of just under two metres, Squalo Trenta is designed with the modern yacht owner in mind. 

The model’s interior and exterior styling comes from the Italian design studio Roberto Curtó while naval architecture is courtesy of Massimo Verme. Its bold profile is characterised by muscular lines and a strong silhouette with a vertical bow and a high pilothouse.

“This is not an industrial product,” said Curtó, “it is a piece of art. Squalo is full of Italian nautical history, style and innovation.”

Alongside its distinctive design, the Squalo Trenta offers enhanced onboard comfort thanks to floating floors, floating ceilings and a floating walls system that supports the lower and main decks.

Squalo Trenta also offers scope for customisation, with at least three different flybridge and main deck configurations to suit the needs of all owners. 

The aft deck is the key focal point of the design, with a plunge pool sitting above a toy garage. It’s adjoined by an open deck area with seating and shaded dining.

There is an alternative lounge area on the deck above, where the pilothouse is connected to a generous open area that provides over 990 square metres of living space.

The interior ensures guests remain connected to the outside world, thanks to expansive floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

Accommodation can be provided for between eight to ten guests depending on the configuration chosen by the buyer. A master cabin sits on the main deck forward and there are two cabin configurations on offer on the lower deck.

One option allows for a secondary master cabin that rivals the owner’s cabin and a stateroom, a VIP guest cabin and a guest cabin with two twins to comfortably sleep eight. Another option of two queen guest cabins and two twin staterooms can comfortably sleep ten.

Speaking on the new design, Alpha Yachts co-founder Roberto Aboumrad said: “I’ve never dedicated so much time, energy, and effort ever, and I’m so proud to be able to keep on pushing the boundaries to give our industry a yacht that will by far exceed the lifestyle of a 30 metre yacht.

“Happiness, comfort and satisfaction for my customers is the best payback that I can have to all my effort and energy devoted to Squalo.”

The Squalo model follows in the footsteps of the Alpha Custom Yachts Spritz 102, an award-winning model whose second unit was sold in December 2021
