by Raphael Montigneaux
The launch of the first IAG 100 was scheduled for the end of 2011, and it has now duly taken place at the yard based in Zhuhai, China. Called Electra, she's the second build from IAG Yachts.
RINA Classed, this 31m composite yacht is built to a design by YD&AS, the Italian company who are also responsible for the IAG 127.
Her interior layout comprises a lounge with a separate dining area in front of the wheelhouse. Eight guests are accommodated in four cabins on the lower deck, including a full-beam master suite, a VIP and two twins.
On the technical side, Electra is powered by twin MTU M93 engines giving a top speed of 27 knots, a cruising speed of 21 knots and a range exceeding 2,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Sold to a Chinese owner earlier this year, Electra is scheduled for delivery in the near future. Intended for cruising in Asia, the yacht will appear at various local boat shows in the Spring.
