Aluna 127 - Explorer Yacht or Support Vessel
Ocean Independence lists Aluna 127, an unusual and versatile yacht in its portfolio built by FDC Yachts in Bodrum.
Especially among younger generations, there is growing demand for large yachts to be used as a luxurious tool to create memorable experiences and explore secluded areas. With the Aluna 127, Ocean Independence lists a yacht that is ideally suited for this purpose.
The yacht, designed by Red Yacht Design, has superstructures that are pulled far forward and a correspondingly large aft deck on which, among other things, large tenders or helicopters can be transported in order to be able to explore very remote areas.
While a twelve-metre and five-metre tender can be stowed, along with jet skis and several toys, the aft deck can also be used for large events. This configuration makes the Aluna 127 suitable both as a stand-alone explorer and as a support vessel for much larger yachts.
The 38.80-meter-long and 9.10-meter-wide Aluna 127 is a project of Turkish shipyard FDC Yachts in Bodrum, and her design is by Notilus Yacht Design. In the engine room of the yacht, which is made of steel and aluminium, two 1150 hp CAT diesels are installed, each of which provides a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots. At 10 knots, the 54,500 litres of diesel in the tanks are enough for 3500 nautical miles of non-stop cruising.
The interior and the layout of Aluna 127 have also been developed by Red Yacht Design. The yacht can host 10 + 2 guests on the lower deck in spacious and comfortable cabins while offering the owner a private terrace on the upper deck. On the main deck, owners and guests can use a so-called multi-purpose area in addition to the salon and dining area - it is suitable as a TV or gaming lounge or even a meeting room.
Eric Trupheme, CA consultant of the Aluna 127 at Ocean Independence, says: "With the Aluna 127 we have a new type of yacht in our portfolio that comes across as very multifunctional and modern. I am sure she will generate a lot of interest. The build time is also only around two years."
