Overview of Blohm + Voss Dubai
In 1996, the brother of the Sultan of Brunei, Geoffrey Bolkiah, ordered a yacht from Blohm & Voss. Construction was done in conjunction with the shipyard Lürssen .. In 2000 the Sultan, angered by his brother's huge spending, ordered him to sell the yacht. At that time only the hull and superstructure were finished. She was bought by the Emirate of Dubai and transferred to the Platinum Yachts. In order to reach the 26 knot speed, the yacht was equipped with at least 4 MTU (single shaft unit) engines with 8000 hp. With a cruising speed of 23 knots, she has an unrefueled range of 8,500 miles. Yacht designed by Andrew Winchis the quintessence of elegance and comfort. She can carry 24 passengers. Her main attraction is the central spiral staircase which is a true work of art. The upper two decks are dedicated to the owner and his family. Once on board, the Dubaï is like being transported to one of the palaces of «1001 Nights». The helipad can accommodate a helicopter «Sikorsky S76» with a capacity of 12 people.
