Ruya is our feature on today’s Superyacht Sunday, a 41.3 meter motor yacht built by Turkish yacht masters – Alia Yachts. Launched in July 2015, this is the latest vessel from the shipyard and was commissioned by experienced owners as a go-anywhere superyacht.
The yacht is built to 499 GT Lloyd’s Register and features a range of tropical inspired finishes with massive spaces on its tri-deck layout. The sundeck for example has a generous 93 square meters size and a jacuzzi for 10, not to mention the huge open main deck sitting areas.
The foredeck area and bridge deck aft both offer endless views for guests who choose to unwind on these locations. The owner wanted an interior that reflects the tropical climate and his wish came true through the use of numerous materials such as bamboo, exotic woods and unique leather with custom designs.
The owner’s suite is located on the forward of the main deck and is a culmination of the exotic interior with rich materials and custom finishes on the wall elements. There are large windows allowing for natural lighting in the cabin as well as a large walk through bathroom. Four additional guest cabins are located on lower deck allowing for a total of 10 guests and a crew of 9.
The beach club can be accessed via a submergible staircase where guests can relax and take part in various water activities including swimming and underwater explorations. Sorgiovanni Designs was responsible for both the interior and exterior design teaming up with Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Ruya is powered by two CAT C32 ACERT engines rated at 1000 bhp each and two additional Kohler generators rated at 125 kW each. That said, Ruya can achieve a maximum speed of 14 knots and a range of 4,116 nm while cruising at an economical speed of 10 knots.
