Dubai the Arab dream

 Third largest private yacht in the world after Azzam and Eclipse, Dubai, designed by Andrew Winch Designs and launched by Blohm + Voss in 2006, in addition to the size,  (162 meters long and developed on seven bridges), stands out for the interiors made by Platinum Yachts (now Platinum Yachts Fzco).

 The company based in the capital of the United Arab Emirates was responsible for the engineering design of this truly immense yacht. Dubai is a project that kicked off on commission of the Prince of Brunei and it was implemented through a joint venture between Blohm + Voss and Lurssen which was then acquired by Platinum Yachts in 2001 for His Highness Sheik Mohammed Rashid al-Maktoum. During the exchange of shipowner, the project passed entirely in the hands of Blohm + Voss. Many particularities of the interior décor are extremely rich and opulent. Among the most egregious, next to the particularly vibrant colors of the mosaics illustrating environments and the choice of textures, as evidenced by the large red sofa placed in the center of the main hall, there is a circular staircase that connects the upper decks with the steps made of crystal that change color.
