PROJECT ALUNA 127, is a full displacement ocean-going yacht which can be used as a support vessel with impressive load capacity or as an expedition vessel offering colossal deck space.

With her steel hull and aluminium superstructure, she can cruise far and wide at 11 knots and with a maximum speed of 15 knots. The most striking feature of PROJECT ALUNA 127 is that her superstructure is located forward, enabling guests to enjoy an exceptionally spacious aft deck.

Like her little sister Aluna 87, Aluna 127 model also has a design and function approach that can be called “Multi-Purpose”. While she has all the features of yachts of the same size, she can also function as a yacht support vessel with the ability to carry many toys on board.

Aluna's most striking exterior feature is that the superstructure is close to the bow and houses the owner's cabin with a large private terrace, his/hers bathrooms and the wheelhouse.

Another unique feature of the Aluna 127 is that she can carry a tender up to 12 meters long on the main deck. Along with the 12m tender, two jet skis and one 5m jet tender can be carried. The Aluna 127 also allows a 4-person "touch and go" helicopter to land, thanks to the large deck area. Accessing Aluna 127 wherever she cruises is effortless, with no more last-mile problems.

The interiors of Aluna 127 are also an indication that yacht comfort is not compromised. The boat 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 stern, there is a decent size of beach club/gym area with extra space for toy storage. A workshop that will serve the yacht support vessel feature and a storage area allowing all loose furniture in the open deck be stowed away are also in this area.

A separate multi-purpose lounge area is on the main deck beside the main saloon and dining area. This area can be used as a video game, TV room, or area where the owner can have private meetings.

The yacht has a crew capacity of 7+1, and crew areas are separated by a separate circulation on the lower deck forward. The crew is connected to a fully equipped galley through a comfortable crew mess. The hull of the Aluna 127 has been designed for optimum fuel consumption and maximum performance. Due to the 12m tender operation and the touch-and-go helicopter, the engineering teams made detailed studies on dynamic stability. Aluna's hull will be steel, and the superstructure will be aluminium.
