With exterior design and naval architecture by Bill Dixon and luxury interior design by Alia in collaboration with CT Mimarlik, the new 26-metre 0110 was delivered to her experienced owner who wanted an open-plan boat for contemporary living on the water both inside and out.
This brief resulted in a walkthrough layout on the main deck from the terraced deck with fold-down bulwarks, through sliding glass doors that fold away completely into the superstructure into the covered lounge and helm station, and then through a forward door onto the foredeck lounge area.
The main deck is on one level and the combination of fore and aft openings means that the entire boat is connected and there is always a refreshing breeze wafting through the boat.
Four guest suites are customary on yachts this size, but the owner stipulated just three cabins on the lower deck, including the forward master stateroom, so the accommodations are more spacious and comfortable.
The terraced aft deck leads down to a swim platform with an integrated Opacmare Transformer for easy access to the sea, as well as for launching and retrieving a 5.2-metre tender.
The staircase lifts up to reveal a garage for toys like Seabobs and paddleboards. “This is a super cool boat,” says Gökhan Çelik, president of Alia Yachts.
“From the crisp exterior lines to the modern interior styling, she’s very modern with unwavering attention to detail as found on our superyachts.
“And, with a beam of nearly 7.3 metres, she’s also uncharacteristically roomy for her length.”
0110 is fitted with twin Volvo Penta 1350 engines for a top speed of 22.5 knots and a range at an economical speed of 800 nautical miles. For extra comfort, especially at anchor, she has two Seakeeper gyro stabilisers.
Alia currently has eight projects under construction up to 60 metres in length.
