New Launch: Alia 36m Support Vessel

Alia has launched hull number 361, what is a 36 meter Support Vessel titled Phi Phantom. A sleek, muscular new predator the 36m custom support vessel comes from a design by Cor D.Rover with naval architecture by Dutch firm Van Oossanen. In May 2021 the Turkish yard painstakingly drove the fully aluminium yacht out of the building halls and lifted it into the water in Antalya using a 200-tonne travel lift. Phi Phantom, part of the Phi Project, is a superb example of the yard’s metalworking skills. Destined to support the custom superyacht Phi by Royal Huisman, this Alia 36m Support Vessel reflects many elements of the larger yacht’s design. The hull was to have no fairing to finish it, so the plates had to be very accurately bent in three dimensions, then welded without creating the slightest distortion. It is flawlessly painted in the exactly same matt blue-grey as the mothership. She also shares the horizontal grille work at the bow and echoes the swooping shearline of the larger vessel. This 36m Support Vessel is built to cross oceans carrying the tenders and toys that the mothership has no garage to stow. The key here is a 9m HS Marine crane capable of lifting 5.5 tonnes out of the water and onto the vast 150 square-metre aft deck. It has more than enough power to handle the 14m gentleman’s tender currently taking shape at Spirit Yachts, as well as the Axopar 37 Suntop. A hydraulically operated lazarette under the deck stores further toys in a protected environment. But the super support yacht is also a technical marvel in other respects. Every system is overspecified, so as to be as reliable as possible. From pumps and piping to hydraulics and electrics, everything is designed to be as bombproof as possible. With a patented Fast Displacement Hull Form by Van Oossanen and twin Cat 1900hp engines, Alia 36m Supper Vessel has a range of 4,200 nautical miles at twelve knots cruising speed. Flat out, she’ll do 21 knots to match the slim, easily-driven hull of the mothership. The interior is designed to be as functional as possible, although finished to superyacht crew standards. There are berths for up to six crew, but the boat is classified for handling by just three. It means that there is extra space on board, and one of the cabins has been designated as a guest cabin, with a little more volume and a desk. After doing final sea trials Phi Phantom was delivered to her owner in June.
