Turkish shipyard Alia Yachts has unveiled its latest 60m superyacht, Samurai, which recently launched from its facilities in Antalya.
She features naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and exterior design by Omega Architects, with interior design completed by Redman Whiteley Dixon.
According to a statement by Alia Yachts, Samurai features strong horizontal lines and an “organic evolution of the wheelhouse deck superstructure into the aft overhang of the main-deck.” She is based on the Fast Displacement Hull Form, a result of extensive research over 20 years by Van Oosanen.
Alia describes Samurai’s interior as “powerful, sophisticated styling”, and a “direct result of diligent research, experience and a dedicated team whose focus was to create a functional and flexible space. One of her highlights is certainly the great synergy between inside and outside, creating interesting and refreshing spaces.”
The main deck of Samurai features guest cabins and a large master owner’s suite, as well as the principal saloon and dining. All guest suites also feature full-height windows, which allow natural light to flood the room.
The lower deck provides crew accommodation quarters as well as the main galley, engine room and tender garage aft, with 7m and 6.3m Smuggler tenders. At sea level, there is a beach club and gym, designed to maximise access to on-the-water activities.
Samurai “stands apart in terms of engineering and performance”, Alia revealed, able to reach a top speed of 21 knots. She is powered by twin MTU 16V4000 M73L engines of 2,880 kW each, with a range of 4,250nm.
