The owner, an experienced yachtsmen who has owned several boats across a range of sizes over the past ten years, was clear on his brief for his all-new 60 metre; a high-performance expedition yacht for go-anywhere global travels that can accommodate a large family for long periods at a time.
With an interior volume of 810 gross tons and generous exterior spaces, the family will be able to enjoy extended cruises without having to return to shore for provisioning or refuelling. With an Ice Class hull, there is nowhere the yacht – set to be delivered in 2024 – won’t be capable of accessing.
The upper deck master stateroom enjoys the best views on aboard, positioned forward and high above the water. The suite includes a large walk-in wardrobe and dedicated owner lounge overlooking a private foredeck. A further six guest cabins reside on the lower deck: four VIP doubles and two twins. An elevator connects all levels from the lower deck to the sun deck.
“It’s fantastic to have the opportunity to bring an experienced owner’s globetrotting vision to life. Their dream is to cruise the Seven Seas together with their large family, and while our portfolio comprises a growing number of yachts designed to be residences at sea, this new project truly emphasises the freedom felt from sailing the world while feeling at home.”
BART M. BOUWHUIS, CO-CREATIVE DIRECTOR
The sprawling lower deck beach club is equipped with a massage room, dive store and steam shower, alongside a gym and chill-out zone. As on Al Waab, semi-transparent side panels create a wind-protected area and close connection to the water.
“Coming hard on the heels of Al Waab, we are thrilled to once again collaborate with the same team on another innovative and inspiring new build,” says Gökhan Çelik, President of Alia Yachts. “Turkey is fast becoming a hub for building globetrotting superyachts. Add to that Vripack’s renowned explorer heritage and SF Yachts’ expertise and this promises to be yet another excellent new build project.”
Close attention is also being paid to technical and logistical requirements to ensure the yacht is as easy to operate and maintain for the crew as possible. For example, the spacious galley and crew salon/dinette is on the main deck forward, where there is also a technical room with access to the side-loading tender garage.
The new 60-metre project is scheduled for delivery to her owner in 2024.
“The owner and his family have already planned so many trips in every part of the world. The new 60 metre will mean they can travel around the globe in comfort, safety and style, and we can’t wait to help turn that dream into a reality.”
