Alia Yachts 60m superyacht Samurai is set to woo the audience at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show

The Alia Yachts flagship has received little publicity since her launch in 2016. Now Samurai's power and poise is set to woo the audience at the Monaco Yacht Show in September (25-28).

"We've been sitting on the superyacht industry's best-kept secret for the last three years," says Alia President Gökhan Çelik. "In terms of overall design and construction quality, Samurai demonstrates what we're capable of and I'm delighted we finally have this opportunity to show her off to the yachting world."

With exterior styling by Omega Architects, naval architecture by van Oossanen and interior design by Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD), Samurai combines top northern European design with Alia's proven yachtbuilding capability.

The low-rise exterior profile with its bold vertical windows, elegantly arched superstructure and long aft overhangs exudes power and grace. But her sleek lines disguise a high-volume interior of 1050GT, most of which is housed inside the hull.

Besides the engine room, the lower deck is dedicated to a spacious beach club and gym with fold-down transom door and side platform, a tender garage with room for two custom tenders of up to 7m, the crew quarters, crew dinette and pro-spec gallery.

Natural light and sea views

The main deck provides accommodation for 10 in four guest cabins and a full-beam, forward-facing owner's suite. The staterooms, open-plan main salon and dining room benefit from natural light and sea views thanks to the full height windows. A stairway on the aft deck provides direct exterior access to the beach club below.

As well as the wheelhouse and captain's cabin, the bridge deck provides space for ample alfresco lounging with dining for a full complement of guests, a fifth guest suite, and a panoramic lounge on the open foredeck.

Based on natural materials and neutral tones, the interior design by RWD is tastefully sophisticated but also warm, welcoming and functional. The flow between flexible and airy entertainment areas enhances a kind of loft-living conviviality, while also guaranteeing privacy and intimacy when desired.

Samurai's visual impact is matched by her performance. Powered by twin MTU 16V4000 M73L engines (2,880kW each), her patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) by Van Oossanen provides a top speed of 21 knots and a transatlantic range of 4,250nm at economical speed.
