In conjunction with the imminent opening of its new facilities, the shipyard has expressed a clear focus on expanding its new build and refit proposition, with plans to rank among the top yacht building facilities in Turkey.
“This expansion will help us achieve three key objectives,” says Gökhan Çelik, founder and president of Alia Yachts. “Firstly, it will increase our production capacity and allow us to work simultaneously on more projects. Secondly, it will enable us to accommodate larger projects than our existing sheds currently allow. And last but not least, it will help grow our focus on the refit sector.”
Having delivered a total of four yachts over 30m since 2012 with a cumulative LOA of 167.8m, Alia Yachts currently has three vessels under construction, including Nazomi II, which has begun construction on spec at the shipyard and scheduled for completion in 2021.
Furthermore, Alia Yachts currently has a further three superyachts under final contract negotiations.
