33 Metre Sportfish Superyacht Al Duhail Launched
The yacht was launched on January 22, hitting the water in Hobsonville before travelling to Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. Al Duhail will now undergo finishing work before undertaking sea trials.
The all-carbon sportfisher features naval architecture and exterior design penned by Warwick Yacht Design. The interior meanwhile was developed in-house by Yachting Developments in collaboration with the owner.
The owner’s brief called for a “simple, elegant” interior, with key materials including oak wood, white panelling and cream carpets, with “pops of colour” in the soft furnishings.
Accommodation on board is for a total of 10 guests in five cabins, comprising a master suite and four guest cabins. There are also two crew cabins on board.
Power comes from twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L 2000 HP engines for an estimated cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 30 knots.
Managing director Ian Cook said: “Al Duhail has been a very enjoyable project to build and we have relished working with these experienced owners. Our specialist composite team made use of full carbon epoxy construction to achieve the desired weight and performance–as a result she is sure to be fast and economical on the water.”
