Alia Yachts in Turkey has delivered the 102-foot Virgen del Mar VI, a full-displacement yacht with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.
Exterior design on the 235-gross-ton raised pilothouse yacht is by Omega Architects in the Netherlands. Interiors are by British-based Redman Whiteley Dixon. The main-deck master stateroom spans nearly 250 square feet with glass doors to port and starboard that access a private terrace forward. Four additional guest staterooms are belowdecks.
“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,” Alia President Gökhan Çelik stated in a press release.
The shipyard hasn’t built a production series in the past, focusing instead on custom yacht construction. That appears poised to change thanks to interest in yachts similar to Virgen del Mar VI.
“Virgen del Mar VI started as a one-off project, but we have letters of intent to build further units with fully customizable interiors,” Çelik stated in the release. “We’re also developing a 37-metre and 50-metre version based on the same platform.”
More about Alia Yachts: Çelik founded the yard in 2008 with business partner Ömer Koray. Alia can build in carbon-reinforced composites, steel and aluminum. Virgen del Mar VI is the shipyard’s 10th delivery in a fleet ranging from 80 feet to nearly 200 feet length overall.
