Alia Yachts in Antalya, Turkey, has begun construction of the 172-foot Alia Sea Club superyacht. The 499GT yacht features a simple yet sleek exterior design, nearly vertical bow, and flexible general arrangement designed by Azure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture in the Netherlands.
This new project is another glowing 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, We are looking forward to working with Azure Yacht Design. – Gökhan Çelik, president of Alia Yachts
The steel and aluminum Alia Sea Club boasts a large covered tender bay on the main deck, which will accommodate a 13-meter luxury guest tender, an 8.2-meter crew tender, a submarine, two wave-runners, two sailing dinghies, and two sailing catamarans. The superyacht will also feature a fully certified helideck and a 50-square meters storage area on the lower deck, where a complete inflatable waterpark will be stored in addition to other toys. The water sports center will include a showroom space for storing diving gear equipment, sea-bobs, various surfboards, and electric bicycles.
The yacht is fitted with two guest cabins, one large master cabin, and luxurious relaxation areas where guests will be able to relax and unwind after their water activities. The bridge deck and sundeck, for example, are perfect for hosting parties and social events. The yacht can accommodate up to 10 guests and 12 crew members.
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. 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. – Onne Logger, Azure Yacht Design Director
Currently, the yacht is under construction at Alia Yachts. Delivery of the Alia Sea Club 53m is scheduled for the end of 2023, which represents once again a very fast build time of just 24 months.
