Alia Yachts’ Flagship 197ft Samurai Debuts At Monaco Yacht Show

Turkish superyacht builder Alia Yachts are set to debut their flagship 197 foot / 60 metre Samurai at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show held over the 25th to 28th of September. This will be the very first appearance at an international yacht show for the striking superyacht which was launched three years ago.  Styled by Dutch designers Omega Architects, Samurai is sure to turn heads at Monaco thanks to her sleek exterior lines, eye-catching vertical windows, and elegant superstructure.

Thanks to her impressive 1050 GT volume, there’s plenty of space both inside and outside for some serious downtime. Al fresco highlights include an airy beach club, large swim platform, and tender garage which can accommodate two tenders of up to 23 feet. Her sun deck boasts a deck jacuzzi and plenty of sun loungers for chilling out with a good book or simply working on your tan.

Her sumptuous interior spaces have been styled by prestigious British designers Redman Whiteley Dixon who have worked with a neutral tones and metallic touches to create harmony and consistency throughout. One of the most impressive spaces here is the spacious full-beam owner’s suite which has a large lounge and floor to ceiling windows to maximise natural light. 

On the main deck there are an additional four guest cabins which mean that Samurai can host up to 10 overnight guests at any time. Social spaces are provided in the form of a roomy open plan lounge and dining room on the main deck and an al fresco dining area on the bridge deck. There is also a panoramic sky lounge with excellent views which is perfect for relaxing with friends or family and enjoying a good movie on the large TV screen. 

“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.”
