Alia Yachts Launches 41 Metre Rüya

Rüya 1

The little known shipyard Alia Yachts based in Antalya Turkey has launched its latest build, the 41.29 metre full-displacement motor yacht Rüya.

The fully composite displacement motor yacht built to Lloyds Register and complies with the MCA LY2 was launched in late July 2015 following a build period of just over two years.

Rüya will now undergo extensive sea trials before attending the Monaco Yacht Show and delivery to her new owners in September 2015.

Built for experienced outdoors-loving owners, the design brief was for a spacious sub-500GT go-anywhere yacht around the 40 metre mark, with a timeless design that was both practical and functional.

Having drawn together a talented build team from around the world, this brief has been more than met in Rüya.

Sam Sorgiovanni, designed both the interior and exterior He told us, “There is no question that the volume and beam of the yacht creates the feeling of being on a much bigger yacht, with its fully custom design unique for a vessel in this size range,” he said. “The interior layout and sophisticated decor along with the exterior design combine to create a compact superyacht that defies its length.”

The naval architecture is by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and David McQueen of Australia-based Motor Yacht Build undertook project management.

Powered by twin Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines she is capable of a maximum speed of 14 knots, with a range of 4,116nm while cruising at 10 knots.

Rüya is an exceptionally voluminous yacht, with multiple usable spaces. Clean, flowing lines add visual length and ensure that the tri-deck design will make an elegant sight on the water.

Particular focus was placed on maximizing the outdoor areas, with the yacht boasting a huge 93m2 sun deck with full bar and 10-person Jacuzzi. The vessel’s aft storage hatches open up to create a practical sports area with a spacious swim deck and on-water Beach Club.

In keeping with the owner’s brief for a yacht that would facilitate relaxed living, the interior styling is that of a tropical beach resort. The interior feel is very relaxed, featuring natural materials and finishes.

Materials include textured woods, bamboo and other exotic materials, which combine to create a very tactile and sophisticated, yet sumptuous feeling interior.

Offering accommodation for 10 guests across five cabins, the yacht can carry up to 12 using two additional Pullmans berths.

The master suite is located on the main deck, with two double and two twin VIP guest staterooms on the lower deck. Ten crew use five twin berth cabins.
