Yachting Developments have begun the new year with the launch of the 33-metre all-carbon sportfisher, Al Duhail, whose build was first announced in early 2018 following the yard's delivery of the world’s largest full-carbon sportfisher, Lanakai. Having been launched safely onto the water, she will now travel to Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour to undergo final finishing work ahead of her sea trials in February 2020.

Inside, features are to include accommodation for up to 10 guests, including an owner's suite, four staterooms and two crew cabins, decorated with light oak wood, white panelling, cream carpets and coloured soft furnishings.Photo: Yachting DevelopmentsPhoto: Yachting DevelopmentsHull 1017 will be powered by twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L 2000 HP engines to cruise at 20 knots and reach a top speed of 30 knots.Photo: Yachting Developments“Al Duhail has been a very enjoyable project to build and we have relished working with these experienced owners,” says Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments. “Our specialist composite team made use of full carbon epoxy construction to achieve the desired weight and performance – as a result, she is sure to be fast and economical on the water.”
