Two of the largest superyachts built in the UAE have made this year’s list of the world’s Top 100 largest Superyachts. Abu Dhabi’s ADM Shipyards’ Swift 141 motor yacht has been placed at number 6 on the prestigious top 100 superyacht list, while the 162-metre megayacht ‘Dubai’ retained its ranking as the world’s second largest superyacht.

 Ex Dutch Royal Navy Frigate Transformed by Abuhabi Mar into an astonishing Gigayacht SWIFT 141

SWIFT141 Superyacht – Abu Dhabi MAR’s Frigate Transformation

May 11, 2010

What is the most talked about aspect of ADMShipyards is not only their determination to become one of the top builders, but also their first project, the SWIFT141 superyacht, based on a sleek and modern design created by Pierrejean Design Studio in Paris. The first remarkable aspect (of many) of the newbuild is that the steel hull originally belonged to a Royal Netherlands Navy frigate, which was later purchased by the UAE Navy. The second is that when launched later this year the SWIFT141 will rank among the largest yachts in the world, and her long, narrow hull, with a top speed of 26 knots, will surely be among the fastest. Third, she will be topped by the largest composite-built yacht superstructure ever built, which includes more than 700 square metres of insulated glass.
