New Alenyacht 68 superyacht tender set to be launched
by Raphael Montigneaux
Following the new Alen 55 series introduced at the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, the Turkish yard Alenyacht will launch their new flagship before the end of the year, the Alen 68.
An ideal chase boat for a stylish superyacht, the Alen 68 is designed by the renowned office Foster + Partners. Built in composite with a length of 20.32m, the Alen 68 follows the philosophy of her previous smaller sisters. A maximum of 16 passengers will enjoy large volumes outside with large sunpads aft, a dining area midship and the wheelhouse protected by an oversized curved glass. A large part of this cockpit can be shaded by a retractable bimini top.
Inside, the Foster&Partners touch is immediately recognisable with the minimalist interior comprising curves. The standard version offers a large lounge forward, with a central kitchen and a day head. Aft, a full-beam master cabin offers all the comfort for a night far from the yacht. Another version is available with a smaller lounge area and a second guest cabin.
On the technical side, the Alen 68 is powered by twin 1,550hp MAN engines giving a top speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 41 knots.
The first Alen 68 will hit the water before the end of the year.
