Best of the Year: Alen 68 by Alen Yacht

Alen Yacht invites you to have luxury experience in this wonderful 68-foot motor yacht designed by  Foster + Partners. How this yacht can be described in a few words? The fast, agile, elegant or spacious? Yes, Alen 68 perfectly combines the elegant social spaces of a cruising yacht with innovative design.

This new forward-looking yacht designed by Foster+Partners, London-based  architecture firm which is behind Hearst Tower in Manhattan and the futuristic 30 St Mary Axe skyscraper in London. The Foster & Partners team and the shipyard developed a vessel with a streamlined exterior and maximised deck space due to the yacht’s 20 percent volume advantage over rivals, creating more walk-around deck space and more scope for innovative design.

Interior design of the Alen 68 emphasises the sense of flying across the waves with sweet summer wind. The luxury yacht is wrapped in a soft palette of bleached oak and yacht furniture is upholstered with white leather. Strips of LED lighting run along the yacht interior’s white-leather walls, providing illumination and lending the areas a spaceship-like quality.

The midship owner’s cabin features a double-size bed, a chaise longue, and an en suite bathroom. The rest of the below-deck space can be configured either to house a large lounge with a wraparound sofa at the bow or to accommodate two additional cabins. A surprisingly spacious tender garage located aft of the owner’s cabin is capable of storing a large tender, personal watercraft, and paddleboards.
