Oh YAS, it's in Dubai!

June 4th, 2024

Probably the fastest superyacht afloat, MY YAS has been spotted enjoying Dubai waters this past winter season 2024.

The MY YAS is not your ordinary superyacht, oh no. The 141m motoryacht YAS is a converted navy frigate. Her original name was HNLMS Piet Hein when she was deployed in service with the Royal Netherlands Navy in 1981. At the time of her launch, the vessel had an overall length of 135m. She was later sold to the UAE Navy in 1998 and put in service until she was decommissioned in 2005. 

She was then acquired by Abu Dhabi Royal Family who moved her to Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) and converted her to the marvel she is today. She was extended by 6m and of course completely restyled inside out thanks to the work of Pierrejean Design Studio.

Superyacht YAS has been photographed in Dubai waters during the winter season just infront of the world's only 7 start hotel, Burj Al Arab.
