Alia Yachts in Turkey has delivered an 85-foot Bill Dixon design to the owners. The custom project is built in aluminum and composite, and has interiors by Alia in collaboration with CT Mimarlik.

The owner wanted an open-plan boat for contemporary living inside and out. Features on the main deck include a terraced deck with fold-down bulwarks and foldaway sliding glass doors at the covered lounge area.

Accommodations are for three guest staterooms on the lower deck, including the master stateroom forward. The owner could have ordered four staterooms on board but wanted spaces that were larger.

“This is a super-cool boat,” Gökhan Çelik, president of Alia Yachts, stated in a press release. “From the crisp exterior lines to the modern interior styling, she’s very modern with an unwavering attention to detail as found on our superyachts.”

Power comes from twin 1,350 hp Volvo Penta engines for a reported top speed of 22.5 knots and a range of 800 nautical miles.

What else is in build at Alia? The yard has eight projects under construction up to 196 feet length overall.
