Yachting Developments has announced that 34.3m/112ft luxury sportfisher yacht AL DUHAIL has been delivered to her Owner before cruising on to her homeport in Qatar.
Her launch took place on the 22nd of January 2020 in Auckland, New Zealand, before she was officially received by her Owner in February when she undertook a massive 8,000 nautical mile maiden voyage to Doha.
The experienced Owners were looking to upgrade from their previous sportfisher, also named AL DUHAIL. Constructed with a lightweight carbon fibre hull and superstructure, M/Y AL DUHAIL is designed for accessing shallow waterways to reach fishing spots other larger vessels struggle to get to. Warwick Yacht Design created her sleek exterior profile and her understated interiors are the work of the shipyard in collaboration with the Owners’ team.
The modern, neutral rooms use light oak with a natural grain and a semi-gloss finish with walnut detailing. Upholstered panelling in places such as the bed headboards and colour accents in deep blue and mustard add a touch of home away from home. The accommodation sleeps 10 guests over 5 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 2 double cabins and 2 twin bunk cabins. There is also accommodation for a professional crew of 5.
Also of note is the large cockpit designed for fishing and diving expeditions, and the area is equipped with tuna tubes, live bait tanks, a game chair, ice slurry machines and extensive freezer storage to name some of the additions.
A pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines produce a top speed of 31 knots for zipping between islands, a cruising speed of 20 knots and a range of 2,000 nautical miles at an economical 10 knots.
