ADM Shipyards Launch "Yas" Project Swift 141

ADM Shipyards in Abu Dhabi launched Yas formally project swift 141 last week. Yas enters the list of the worlds largest privately owned yachts at number 6, measuring in at a length of 462ft (141m). Her interior and exterior design was the work of the Pierrejean Design Studio in Paris, with a strikingly graceful exterior of fluid curves and volumes, and a spectacular structural covering of glass. She will have a cruising speed of 20kts and a max speed of 26kts, quite amazing for a yacht of this size and volume. Her fast speeds are down to her fast hull shape which was adapted from an old UAE navy frigate. Her superstructure is the largest composite object of its kind ever built.

She can accommodate 60 guest comfortably on board, where they will be able to enjoy this spectacular yacht. This yacht has broken all the boundaries in yacht construction and design, and pushed the bar so high that it will be hard for other shipyards to reach. At the recent launching ceremony, Johan Valentijn, Privinvest Executive Board member and Industrial Manager in charge of the project said:

"Our international team of experts, subcontractors, and suppliers has accomplished one of the great challenges in modern yacht building, and set in place a major milestone in shipbuilding technology and art that will be difficult to surpass"
