The brand new 41-metre motor yacht RUYA splashed at the Alia Yachts shipyard in Turkey on July 21, 2015. Sam Sorgiovanni was responsible for both the exterior as well as interior of the striking go-anywhere superyacht RUYA, expected to be delivered to her new Owners in September 2015. Subsequently, she will be showcased at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.
“We have kept a low profile to date, because building high quality custom yachts has always been our main focus,” says Gokhan Celik, President of Alia Yachts. “And this approach has paid off. Thanks to referrals from our clients, owner’s representatives and designers, buyers with custom projects know how to find us. As a result we are now building four custom yachts ranging from 30 metres up to 80 metres and we have some very serious enquiries for yachts over 40 metres.”
RUYA yacht is an amazingly voluminous vessel, with multiple usable spaces. Spanning over three generous decks, she boasts a huge 93m2 sun deck with full bar and 10-person Jacuzzi. Moreover, the aft storage hatches open up to create a practical sports area with a spacious swim deck and on-water Beach Club.
“There is no question that the volume and beam of the yacht creates the feeling of being on a much bigger yacht, with its fully custom design unique for a vessel in this size range,” said Sam Sorgiovanni. “The interior layout and sophisticated decor along with the exterior design combine to create a compact superyacht that defies its length. The exceptional build quality executed by Alia Yachts is equal to the best and is a credit to the skill and craftsmanship of all involved.”
The interior styling of RUYA superyacht is that of a tropical beach resort. The atmosphere aboard is very relaxed, enhanced by natural materials and finishes. Materials include textured woods, bamboo and other exotic materials, resulting in a very tactile and sophisticated, yet sumptuous interior.
Built to Lloyds Register and MCA LY2 compliant, luxury yacht RUYA can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 well-appointed cabins, with two additional Pullmans. There is a gorgeous master suite on the main deck, as well as two double and two twin VIP guest staterooms, all positioned on the lower deck. The vessel also features five crew cabins, sleeping a crew of 10 members.
Van Oossanen Naval Architects and David McQueen of Australia-based Motor Yacht Build were responsible for the naval architecture of luxury motor yacht RUYA. She is run by twin Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesels, reaching a top speed of 14 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots.
