16.8m day cruiser
Turkish yard Alen Yachts builds some very stylish vessels. One of them is the 16m Alen 55.
The yacht’s timeless, traditional design has built-in practicality. Her centre console, walk-around deck and deep bulwarks create a safe, spacious environment where guests are ‘in’ rather than ‘on’ the deck.
Up to eight guests can comfortably sit at the extending table, near the open kitchen. At the shaded helm, the controls include the latest navigation equipment and a button to operate the hidden, custom-made anchor mechanism. Behind the aft sun-bed, the hydraulic gangway also doubles as a convenient swim ladder.
The design of the yacht’s interior can be customised to the owner’s requirements. A crew cabin or extra bedroom can be included, the lounge sofa converts into a double berth and the cabins have generous storage space. Teak flooring, leather wall panels and lacquered surfaces produce a warm, natural ambiance.
The Alen 55 can be used as a megayacht tender or as a day cruiser. Power is provided by two Volvo D13 diesel engines, each delivering 800 hp. Top speed is 35 knots, while she can fast cruise at 30 knots.
