A prestigious milestone for Alia Yachts, achieved under the sign of comfort and high performance.
Atlantico is far more than a chase boat or a cruise ship. She has style, attitude and can be easily used to explore shallow bays or inaccessible islands while offering both exhilarating speed and strong feelings, to meet her owner’s requests.
It is well established that a chase boat must complement the mother ship, but Turkey’s Alia Yachts has gone one step further. In delivering the 27 m Atlantico, Alia has managed to extend the mother ship Atlante, taking advantage of the platform designed by the Italian Pastrovich Studio.
“Across its 27 metres, Atlantico offers an extendable beach club, huge forward lounge, protected saloon and exquisite interior,” says Gökhan Çelik, President of Alia Yachts. The complex project combined naval architecture from Lateral with Alia’s shipbuilding knowhow. “The idea with Atlantico, from the real beginning, was to create something innovative and unique that could fully satisfy our needs: a fast and comfortable chase boat which can also be used independently. The initial concept was to try and break conventional boundaries of width, proportions and liveability of a support vessel,” says the owner of Atlantico and the mother ship Atlante.
“Through a tight collaboration of those involved, the outcome is a fast open-plan platform by the sea with no compromise on quality, style, innovation and performance.”
First of all, the hull needed to be capable of high speeds, so it was designed with Volvo’s most powerful IPS1350 engines, generating 3000hp. This makes it possible for Atlantico to plane despite her size. It also gives her very sea-kindly motion, even in heavy seas; two Seakeeper 26 gyro stabilizers keep her steady at rest.
With a teak deck, pale-coloured sofas and sunpads contrasting with the dark glossy columns in the deckhouse, Atlantico subtly reinterprets the feeling of the mother ship. The comfortable mood continues below, where there are two impressive double cabins with large free-standing beds. Gloss white walls contrast firmly with the dark, lavish wood of furniture and bulkhead panelling, all cleverly lit by indirect light.
There are all the amenities required of a large yacht.
Such as two sophisticated shower rooms and a very capable crew galley aft, together with accommodation for four crew members.
