This is SAN, a 148-foot superyacht unveiled by Alia Yachts.

The Turkish shipyard has shared images of this majestic yacht ahead of the launch, and the yacht looks tremendous.

SAN is also quite clever from a technical standpoint.

SAN will be launched at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2024.

She features a fully open main deck that runs from the bow to the stern, with a superstructure covered in glass.

She also comes with a variety of modular features.

The dining table, for example, can transform into a cocktail bar and the sunbathing area can become some sort of intimate living room.

She has enough room for up to 10 seafarers, that’s the good news, but the bad news is Alia hasn’t released any images of the interior…yet.

SAN superyacht joins an elite list of glass ships

Most yachts don’t really use glass for anything other than the windows or the shower stalls.

In that respect, SAN joins an elite list of yachts that use glass as part of their structure.

The Icon‘, an all-glass flying yacht, is probably the most famous example of this.

Another yacht that uses glass in an unusual way is the Majesty 111.

This particular yacht actually won the award for Best Interior Design at the 2023 World Yacht Trophies because of that.

The yacht won the award partly because the interior is gorgeous, but chiefly because of the glass-bottomed pool, directly above the master bedroom.

About the Monaco Yacht Show

Monaco is the go-to place for yachts, at least in Europe.

This explains why Michael Latifi, father of former F1 driver Nicholas Latifi, spent a whopping $141,000 just to have his yacht moored at the dock for half a day.

The Monaco Yacht Show was launched in 1991 with a focus on superyachts over 20 meters – or 66 feet in length.

Like most shows of this kind, it started out as an event for brokers and buyers, but it evolved and became a lot more than that.

On average, it attracts 15,000+ visitors, with anywhere between 60 and 80 yachts worth billions on display every year.
