Based in Turkey, Alia Yachts has a stellar reputation for crafting uncompromising superyachts in the 60 meter size range for the most demanding clientele. This 16 meter model was supposed to be a one-off, but as soon as it was launched, orders began flooding in. Dixon Yacht Design’s naval architects created a craft that would be quite at home in a James Bond movie. Essentially a compact superyacht, it’s remarkably beautiful from all angles while also quite practical. The unique bow entry provides a signature appearance, flowing effortlessly to the helm area, galley and salon which are shielded from the sun by an expansive hardtop. All the way aft, the sunpad and teak-accented swim platform allow easy access for afternoon dips. Down below resides a very comfortably-sized stateroom with en suite head, as well as a compact galley for midnight snacks. Powered by twin Volvo 650 engines linked to IPS pods, the 16 meter has an impressive top speed of 35 knots; AliaYachts.com.
