The Owner of the motor yacht AL WAAB II wanted to use his yacht as a ‘home on the sea’ for his family, and this principle was the key influence on the entire design. The accommodation sleeps up to 12 guests across 6 en-suite cabins, including a spectacular split-level master suite on the upper deck. Guests onboard have an abundance of outdoor space to connect with the environment, and there is a spacious beach club.

Vripack provided the design and engineering for the build, which was completed in only two years despite the setbacks created by the pandemic.
