With a 1,001-square-foot (93-square-meter) sundeck, Ruya makes it hard to believe she is just shy of 136 feet (41.3 meters) LOA. Deck space along those lines is much more common aboard larger yachts. It’s just one of the things that makes the custom megayacht, whose name translates to “dream” from Turkish, a true dream come true for her owner.
Particularly, the owner wanted a long-imagined yacht to take his family on travels around the world. Simultaneously, he wanted a relatively simple, timeless, and of course practical interior layout and overall design. Alia Yachts worked closely with Sam Sorgiovanni to ensure the styling as well as interior design met these commands. Composite construction allows Rüya to show off some fine curves outside. Also outside, as well as throughout her three decks, the stylish superyacht makes the owner’s party of 12 feel as if they’re at a casual resort.
From the sundeck, with a 10-person hot tub, to the beach club, guests have plenty to enjoy. Rüya shows off bamboo tiles for overheads. Even the air ducts and speakers have camouflaging-effect bamboo treatments. Soles, meanwhile, incorporate inset subdued-tone rugs, for a tactile and visually contrasting effect. The woods underfoot are Tasmanian oak, which also covers walls. Again, for tactile and visual interest, the wood is steel-brushed and then satin-varnished, to bring out the textures even more.
Take a look aboard Rüya, keeping in mind that this “small” superyacht has an incredible volume of 499 gross tons. Furthermore, she boasts a reported 4,116-nautical-mile range while her Caterpillar engine package is powering her to her economical cruising speed of 10 knots.
