Superyacht Dhafir in Dubai Creek Marina
Pictured here in the Dubai Creek Marina is the 40.50 metre superyacht Dhafir. This classic Feadship was built at the Dutch company’s Royal Van Lent facilities in 1980, and was commissioned along with the 51.25 metre Abu Al Abyadh by a client in Abu Dhabi. The commission's came at a time when Feadship’s presence in the Middle East was escalating, marked by the successes of the 64.64 metre Al Riyadh and the 48 metre Daria.
Featuring naval architecture and exterior design by De Voogt Naval Architects, the steel and aluminium vessel is powered by twin MTU 12V652 1,570 hp engines. Since her delivery, specific details have been shrouded in an element of secrecy.
