ADM Launches Yas Superyacht, the world’s 6th Largest Yacht
It is said that the vessel was ordered by a member of the Arabic royal family. The boat, called “Yas”, is one of the most luxurious vessels today. The hull of the yacht is built in such a way that it offers great hydrodynamics and speeds, while the boat’s highest velocity is thought to be around 26 knots.
Using beautiful lineage and curves, with superb glass-covering and creating a gorgeous ambiance throughout its all length, Pierrejean Designs projected the vessel, both on the exterior and the interior. The yacht is propelled by diesel power engines, with the help of variable-pitch propellers, assuring ecological fuel-consumption, transoceanic autonomy and an average cruise speed of 20 knots.
The boat can assure accommodation for 60 guests and a 56 staff-crew throughout its stern platform, outdoor spa and pool, a garage for water-sports machines and gadgets plus a carbon-fiber bridge-like door that can be a swimming platform or a boarding bridge. The thrusters, single-stern and dual-bow, can provide dynamic positioning for its crew.
Furthermore, there is a set of amenities that are said to be the best aboard any yachts out there – an extensive audiovisual entertainment system – as ADM Shipyards declare. The list that follows this yacht, gadget-wise, is extremely impressive: long-range underwater sonar, FLIR and high-definition day cameras, Night Navigator, SatCom and ultimate-tech radars.
The boat is also the first ever built to comply with the private-vessel-standards of the latest UAE Large Yacht Code and it’s built under Classification by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). This magnificent work of beauty, engineering and design is still undergoing some finishing touches, and it’s expected to be launched during 2012.
