New Launch: Alia 55m

Alia has launched a new 55-metre.  Titled Al Waab II, this new Alia 55m is the first superyacht to be launched from the new two thousand ton capacity ship lift, part of a wider investment by the Antalya Free Zone into its yacht building infrastructure that includes bigger cranes and travel lifts as well as new hangars for superyacht construction and refit projects.  Notwithstanding the many challenges faced by Alia and other shipyards during the Covid-19 pandemic, the launch took place only a few weeks behind the original build schedule.  Alia 55m remains below the 500GT threshold by emphasizing the hull form and exterior areas, including a sprawling beach club. With design and engineering by Vripack and Dubai-based SF Yachts serving as the owner’s representative during the build, the yacht can sleep up to twelve guests in six staterooms and includes a lavish split-level master suite on the upper deck.  Once outfitting is complete, the new Alia 55m will undergo sea trials before delivery to her owner. The official World debut will take place late September 2021.
