UAE boatbuilder Al Shaali Marine has recently announced the launch of its flagship yacht, the 39m AS130. It is built from a GRP hull and superstructure to a design created in-house by the firm, and features a maximum beam of 8m.
The yacht can accommodate 12 guests over six cabins that include an owner’s cabin, three doubles and two twins. Six staff are accommodated in the crew quarters.
Interior features of the yacht include a 40-inch television with Bose 38 surround sound system in the saloon, and two full-height refrigerators to ensure plenty of stock for long voyages at sea.
Guests will have access to plenty of exterior amenities, with an open sundeck complete with cocktail bar and hardtop Bimini, while the aft cockpit also offers comfortable shade from the sun. Dining for ten guests is provided on the main deck, forward of the open-plan saloon area.
Power is provided by two 1,320hp Caterpillar C32 diesel engines that propel the vessel to a top speed of 24 knots. A fuel capacity in excess of 20,000 litres ensures that owners can expect a cruising range of more than 900 miles.
