    I think we can see construction pics of one of the new Swift yachts in build by the Abu Dhabi Mar company. They are located in the gallery section of the website. Also since acquiring Nobiskrug and controling influence in French builder CMN,they are trying to have majority ownership of Blohm and Voss also?

    The first superyacht from them to be launched will be the Swift 141-meter followed by the 135-meter. Abu Dhabi Mar is building superyachts up to 200-meters long. These two yachts are styled by Parisian Pierrejean Design Studio.

    Both yachts will have a top speed of 26 knots. They are all custom built on hulls acquired from the Royal Dutch Navy that were cut and fashioned to meet design specifications. Abu Dhabi Mar also has two other vessels under construction, a motorized Dhow and an aluminum catamaran.

    I was at the yard a few months ago. As you approach, it looks more like a maximum security facility than a boat yard. High walls with barb wire fence and security gate. Standing next to 141 you realize the size of this guy, it is very impressive. The 135 sits in the water with the superstructure removed waiting in line to be next.

    A lot has been going on behind the scenes but I believe that it is the 141 pictured above for launch this year. There were plans to convert a second frigate into what we have been hearing as the Swift 135.

    hmm... I am not sure. Can anybody help me understand why that thing on the deck reminds me of an airport?

    If you look at the ADM section (approximately the first half of the vid..) you will have some idea of how "Yas" may appear on the inside, if those visualizations are anything to go by...

    Why is "Yas" taking so incredibly long to be finished?

    Hardly any information available on this intriguing yacht.........

    Yep, I have been asking for a long time. No one seems to know anything and this boat has been launched for so long now she should definitely been finished.

    I think I am in love. That is really something. I can't get the pierrejean site to load fully, so I have only the frontpiece photo, but WOW.

    Makes me forget all about Plumduff.:rolleyes:

    The Front page isn't loading for me either. All it is saying is 'Load' with a circle animation going around.
