At 141 m (463 ft) in
length, the yacht Yas is one of the largest yachts in
the world. She is built at Abu Dhabi MAR to a
design of Pierrejean Design Studio in Paris and
delivered to her owner in 2013. Yas was originally
a Dutch navy frigate. The original steel
superstructure of the frigate was replaced with a new
superstructure of composite materials. Two MTU
10,500hp diesel engines can propel her up to 26 knots.
Yas can accommodate 60 guests and a crew of 56.
This 36" long model was commissioned by
the company that designed the
real YAS, Privinvest--A world
leader in naval shipbuilding
present in over 40 countries. It was started in February and
completed in July, 2016.
Happy with the result,
the company commissioned one
more which was delivered in
March 2017. Here's a
comment from an executive: "Yesterday
I had a look at the model.
I have to tell you that I am
very impressed and pleased that
you made the small adjustments.
The model looks great in all the
little details. you are an
excellent craftsman and model
builder. With kind regards
Johan V. PISB"

opened up the Yas model and the A and A model.
They looked wonderful well done. Only I can't find
the forward mast for Yas anywhere can you let me know
where it was packed?... Would you be interested in
making another WP18 model for us at all?
both models as you are really an excellent craftsman...
The more I look at the models I realize you went to
great effort in details which
on model scale is almost impossible to accomplish.
Kind regards, Johan V."
