The yachts, which might appear to be traditional Qatari dhows, are fitted with advanced equipment as one would find onboard a modern superyacht, with a luxury interior designed by Garlant Marco to match.

The yard reports that two superyachts have already been launched, a 30.35 metre and a 31.20 metre version, with project number 3, a 33.20 metre superyacht, currently under construction and is set to be delivered later this year.

In contrast to the traditional image of the vessels, Watermarkdesign makes use of high-tech 3D scans of the hull to be able to develop an interior which can be presented as a 3D rendering to the owner. The next step is to build the interior spaces in the pre-assembly factory in Italy, which is then shipped to Qatar for installation.

The yachts can accommodate between 8 and 10 guests, depending on the interior layout.
