BRAND NEW 2016 SUPERYACHT JOINS THE BURGESS CHARTER FLEET

The 41.4m (135.87ft) motor yacht RUYA has joined the prestigious Burgess charter fleet and will be available in the Mediterranean from spring 2016.

Delivered to her new owner from Turkish shipyard Alia Yachts in January 2016, RUYA, meaning ‘dream’ has caught the attention of the global superyacht industry securing two awards at the ShowBoat Design Awards 2016, and with her thoroughly inspired interior and a fresh, sleek and streamlined profile, it’s not hard to understand why.

RUYA’s interior was created by Australian-born designer Sam Sorgiovanni who masterfully weaved outback-influences throughout. Utilising indigenous products such as bamboo and Australian silky oak, her neutral interior is accented with touchable soft furnishings and hints of terracotta, browns and creams. Thought-provoking art work features throughout too, offering reminders of the beautifully diverse Australian landscape and culture. The designer’s brief asked for a casual, family-orientated yacht and this is evident in the large saloon that encourages social interaction. Located on the main deck, the separate dining area offers seating for 12 where expert chef New Zealander Rhys Barrington delivers fine dine options.  His expertise doesn’t end there either, up on the sundeck the barbecue is the perfect al fresco dining option for balmy Mediterranean evenings.

RUYA’s sundeck is the hub of the happenings on board with a large jacuzzi, bar and lounging area. For those who like to stay active there is a complement of gym equipment too that can be brought out on deck. Without doubt, RUYA is a fantastic family option and her bursting water toy chest simply confirms this. When at anchor take to the Sea-Doos, waterskis, wakeboards, SeaBobs, paddle boards, snorkelling gear and fun inflatables.

Her sleeping quarters are spread across two decks with the full beam master cabin located on the main deck. It offers a separate office plus en suite with heated floors. Below deck a further two double and two convertible twin cabins are found each offering heated floors and luxury bath products.

State-of-the-art technology features throughout with a PLEX movie system and a dedicated movie room in the upper saloon plus IPod docks and Apple TV found in all guest areas.

RUYA’s expert captain Australian Ms Casey Burrows is a wealth of knowledge on chartering in the Mediterranean and boasts nine years sea-faring experience. Both Casey and the experienced crew of eight are all experts in their field and united in offering an exciting and truly memorable superyacht charter.
