FrontRunners: Living Larger
Like its 42-foot predecessor, the Alenyacht Alen 55 (www.alenyacht.com) has a topside area swathed in teak and a hull constructed entirely of composite materials. The $1.1 million overnight cruiser features belowdecks sleeping quarters for as many as five guests and a foldable amidships table that can seat 10. The 55-footer can reach a top speed of 36 knots. Alenyacht, a Turkish company, is working with the London design firm Foster + Partners on a 68-foot model, which it expects to launch by the end of the year.
