Alia Yachts sell in-build 173ft yacht


Alia Yachts has sold the in-build 173ft (523m) Alia Sea Club (pictured), for an undisclosed sum. The vessel is set to be delivered to its owner by the end of 2023.

Onne Logger, director, Azure Yacht Design said: “We developed the project from the conceptual phase in early 2021 and we’re now part of the owner’s team responsible for the exterior design, general layout and the overall project development.”

Utility is the yacht’s primary focus, according to the shipbuilder. The vessel has  a 538sqft (50msq) storage area on the lower deck in addition to the tenders, toys and helicopter deck. The yacht will also accommodate up to 10 guests and 12 crew members.

Gökhan Çelik, president, Alia Yachts said: “We are looking forward to working with Azure Yacht Design.  This new project is another confirmation of our know-how and specific skills in building one-off, full custom yachts that are also designed to be fast, versatile and efficient.”

The steel and aluminium yacht includes a large covered tender bay on the main deck. The bay will accommodate a 42ft (13m) guest tender, an 26ft (8m) crew tender, a submarine, two wave-runners, two sailing dinghies and two sailing catamarans.

Our aim was to create a yacht able to carry a large number of tenders and toys while keeping the styling motifs and onboard features of a luxurious superyacht,” said Logger.
