Sneak Peak Onboard Alia Yachts’ Virgen Del Mar VI

Delivered to her owners in July 2018, the 105 foot/31 meter pocket superyacht Virgen del Mar VI is one of Alia Yachts’ most exciting projects to date offering incredible space and amenities for her modest size. She has a full displacement hull and aluminium superstructure and comes in at an impressive 235 gross tons with a versatile cruising range of 4500 nautical miles. Although Alia Yachts usually concentrates on custom superyacht production, the remarkable reception Virgen del Mar VI has received has led the company to expand into a semi-custom series based on her design.

The key requirement on the brief from her new owner was that Virgen del Mar VI should feel bigger on the inside than on the outside. Exterior designers Omega Architects and interior designers RWD have achieved this with ease by incorporating flowing interior and exterior spaces and large windows which enhance the spacious and open feel in her communal areas.

Principal Designer Frank Laupman of Omega Architects explained that, “we gave Virgen del Mar VI a distinctive raised pilothouse profile and dressed her in strong horizontal and vertical lines to emphasize her length and reflect her sturdy, resolute character.” In addition to her bold exterior lines, Virgen del Mar VI also boasts a collection of stunning outdoors spaces like the large sundeck and extendable swim platform which are ideal spots for relaxing with friends and family.

Other highlights include her 22.5 square meter owner’s suite located on the main deck which boasts its own private terrace and her cozy main lounge which is perfect for winding down with a drink or two while her owners and guests enjoy stunning views from the large windows. There is also an exquisite formal dining area for entertaining or simply enjoying delicious family meals created by the talented crew.

Alia President Gökhan Çelik commented, “There are plenty of 30-meter yachts out there, but most are production boats and none of them offer quite the same volume and degree of customization or bespoke design features. There’s nothing quite like her in her size on the market.”
