60m Superyacht SAMURAI

Award-winning luxury yacht by Alia Yachts


A Showboats Design Awards 2017 finalist, M/Y SAMURAI debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2019 for the first time since her launch in 2016. She is a sensational 60m/197.10ft luxury yacht SAMURAI, available for charter in the Western Mediterranean in the summer, cruising in regions including the Balearic Islands, the French Riviera and Italian Riviera, and the Amalfi Coast or the Caribbean in the winter months.

She sports a sleek exterior profile with a crisp and clean feel in her white hull and superstructure contrasted by large tinted windows. Her naval architecture comes from Van Oossanen and the exterior styling is the work of Omega Architects - two highly regarded names within the luxury yacht building industry.

The lower deck has a broad and deep swim platform for guests to spend as much time close to the water as possible, and it joins with the equally spacious beach club for convenient relaxation and entertaining in the shade.

Generous exterior lounges to the aft can be shaded by removable bimini canvases that allow the outdoor areas to be used in less clement conditions as well as bright sunshine.

The sundeck sports a massive forward Jacuzzi surrounded by spongy sunpads, and below the hardtop there is plenty of seating for alfresco dining and lounging, served by a nearby wet bar.

The beautiful interiors designed by critically acclaimed British studio RWD are modern and minimalist with an Asian motif created in the white, black and red colour scheme in conjunction with geometric artwork on the walls and delicate vegetation associated with the Far East. Floor-to-ceiling windows let the light pour in to the guest accommodation and main salon on the main deck, while the skylounge benefits from even more light and greater views from its elevation.

Elongated sofas and chaise loungers are placed around large square coffee tables, which have glass tops to reflect the light and contrast with the matte textures and darker tones in the room. The formal dining area seats up to 12 guests around an elegant square table, with the large windows providing excellent views of the location while the spotlights and main lighting in the ceiling will allow guests to choose the right ambiance for the occasion after dark.
