The new 56m Modern Dhow design at this year's Abu Dhabi Yacht Show

AM Shipyard launched their new design of the 56metre Modern Dhow at the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show 2010. Her naval architecture is by Sharp Design with Abdullah Al Masaood, her exterior design is also by the same designer, however in collaboration with Guido De Groot. Her interior design is by Sharp Design also in collaboration with Guido De Groot. The production of this magnificent design should commence this year under the management of AM Shipyard.

The newly designed Modern Dhow has been designed for the owner of Al Masaood group, which is also the owner of AM Shipyard. The vessel was designed specifically for the challenging conditions and environment for maintaining the conditions of superyachts in mind, this proved that the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show was the perfect place to showcase this unique yacht.

There is no teak decking or stainless steel on board due to adverse effect from sand in the region. Modern Dhow will not feature many toys or tenders as it will mainly remain static and will not charter out.

Woessner was quick to acknowledge that the Dhow has been designed specifically for her owner. They have many other models for clients that might have other requirements and indeed have different varieties of the Dhow model, both larger and smaller.
