Ala 8 (which means “wing” in Italian) the open according to a young design studio, Satura. Ala 8, 7.99 meters long, is the first model presented by Ala Yachts, a new brand but based on the experience of the two partners – Edoardo Ceccarelli and Gianluigi Falso – who have been working in the nautical sector for decades.

Ala Yachts presents Ala 8: the young open boat

This boat is just…open! Satura Studio, a very active and young Italian design studio designed this open boat with an innovative and versatile style.


The main feature is the two folding lateral wings. If we add to the cockpit the area obtained with the wings opened we find with a wide aft area, 3.45 m, almost one and a half times the “normal” size of 2.55 meters. And by closing the wings the boat can be towed.

Ala 8, the pure open

So on an eight-meter open, we find a much larger space to exploit. But the boat doesn’t end there, of course. At the bow, there is a small sofa and a table which is counterpointed by a small seat on the deckhouse that allows you to have privacy even when the boat is on the dock.

The bath, underdeck, guarantees privacy during a day at sea or if you organize a dinner or a cocktail with friends. The driving seats are integrated into the kitchen cabinet.

The sundeck is equipped with a double cushion for those who want to lie on the wings and enjoy the sun on the surface of the water. The engines, exclusively outboard, are at the customer’s choice with a maximum power of 400 hp. You can choose single or double motorization thanks to the careful design and experience of the engineering studio, MBMarine.


Ala Yachts conquering the Mediterranean

There are already several examples sold and in the production of Ala 8. After the exclusive distribution agreement for Spain with Nautica Mengual and for southern Italy with Orange Yacht of Naples, the first Ala 8 will be launched in early summer, coinciding with the presentation of the new project Ala 10.
