The Yas was launched from the ADM Shipyards facilities in Abu Dhabi in December 2011, bumping the Al Salamah from the number six spot. The Yas was the largest launch of 2011.
The steel hull originally belonged to a Royal Dutch Navy frigate built in 1978. The redesign, by the Pierre Jean Design studio of France, features a distinctive narrow hull paired with a lightweight glass superstructure.
The Yas features a swimming pool and spa, a helipad, a highly advanced audio-visual entertainment system, a garage for water toys, as well as a door made of carbon-fiber functioning as a boarding or swimming platform.
Yas also sports an eco-friendly fuel based engine to reduce its carbon foot print, and has SONAR, SATCOM, and night navigator on board. It can accommodate up to 60 guests, and a 56-strong crew.
