Project: Alen 68

Alen Yacht has joined forces with renowned international architects Foster and Partners to create the project for a new 68 flagship. Merging innovative technology from land construction with boat building expertise has created a fast, agile craft combining the elegant social spaces of a cruising sport yacht with the fun of a day boat. The Alen 68 has twenty per cent more volume than most comparable sport yachts, creating more walk-around deck space and a scope for fresh design thinking. In a break with tradition, the flowing contours of the hull are not hidden by furniture but exposed to reveal the smooth lines of the yacht. This creates space for a flexible interior with a layout of three cabins, or a loft style interior with one owners stateroom to midships. Alen is offering two different design choices for both main and lower deck layouts. Finishing choices are a refined palette of materials including bleached oak, white leather and white onyx. Power comes from twin MAN 1550hp engines with estimated top speeds of 45 knots.
