The unusual-looking superyacht Yas has returned north for the first time since being moved to the Middle East to be completely converted from a world-cruising warship into the modern and luxury superyacht we see today. Yas is currently hauled out at Blohm + Voss where she will undergo a refit and maintenance period at the German shipyard in Hamburg.
