A chic beach house aesthetic on her decks and award-winning Australian outback-influenced interiors make the 136ft (41m) Ruya the perfect charter yacht for those truly looking to get away from it all. Built by Alia Yachts in 2016, this sleek superyacht boasts a vast amount of outdoor living space and gorgeous internal decor styled by Sam Sorgiovanni which picked up an award for Interior Layout & Design at the 2016 ShowBoat Design Awards.


As soon as you step aboard, it’s clear that this is a boat built for enjoying life al fresco. Highlights include the spacious 93sqm sun deck which is kitted out with a 10-person jacuzzi, BBQ, leisurely bar and shaded outdoor dining area that’s just made for long lazy lunches with friends and family. It’s also the ideal spot for staying fit and maintaining your morning workout routine while onboard thanks to the dedicated gym equipment and awe-inspiring views.


One unmissable feature of Ruya’s exterior amenities is the impressive hydraulic swim platform, which is loved by adults and children alike. This fun feature gives direct access from the beach club straight into the sea which makes it a great spot for the little ones to splash around safely, or for adults to take a quick dip after a languid sunbathing session. There’s also a huge selection of water toys available for guest use and the yacht is even an RYA-approved training center should you wish to pick up a new skill while onboard or enjoy license-free use of Ruya’s toys under the expert guidance of her crew.


When it is finally time to step inside and enjoy a little downtime, you’ll find Ruya’s interior spaces just as inspiring as her outdoor living areas with a warm, homely and stylish vibe throughout. Designer Sorgiovanni has chosen to use materials like bamboo and Australian oak and tactile, textured furnishings to invoke a connection with the natural world. The interiors have also been designed to make maximum use of natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows in the main lounge and the dining room which give awesome views out over your surroundings. Other highlights include the movie room which boasts an 80-inch screen and top-of-the-range sound system for relaxed nights in.

Onboard there are a total of five guest cabins, which can accommodate up to 10 charter guests. On the main deck you’ll find a roomy full-beam master suite which includes a his and hers bathroom and a dedicated private office should you need to keep up on business matters while cruising. The remaining cabins are located on the lower deck and are configured as two twin rooms and two double rooms. Her talented crew are on hand to take care of every detail throughout your charter experience and have earned repeat rave reviews thanks to their hard work and impressive dedication to offering a guest experience that is truly unforgettable.


Ruya is available to charter through Burgess Yachts from US$168,000 (€175,000) per week plus expenses.
