The first Extra 130 Alloy motor yacht, named L.A.U.L., was launched on September 4th at the Palumbo Superyachts shipyard in Savona, Italy.
The flagship of the Extra Yachts line, L.A.U.L. will make her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show later this month.
L.A.U.L. was designed inside and out by Francesco Guida with naval architecture by Studio Rogantin in collaboration with Palumbo Superyachts. Her profile contrasts white fibreglass and aluminium surfaces with dark windows, while her interiors are designed to optimise space and better connect guests to the sea.
An al fresco dining area can be found on the upper deck, complete with TV, bar, a sofa and chaise-lounge as well as a large sunbathing zone. The main deck forward is equipped with a swimming pool and sunbathing area as well as a relaxation zone with a c-shaped sofa. Inside, her main saloon features floor-to-ceiling windows offering sea views.
She can accommodate up to ten guests in five en suite cabins, comprising a full-beam master cabin on the main deck, two doubles a VIP and a twin. The crew area can sleep up to six staff in four cabins.
Moving aft, a hydraulic retractable mechanism allows the transom to open, revealing the large garage housing a 5.36 metre tender and a jetski.
Power comes from two 1800hp CAT engines offering a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 15.5 knots. When trimmed back to 12 knots she has a range of over 3000 nautical miles.
L.A.U.L. is the third Extra to hit the water this year after the Extra 86 Fast Mini K and the Extra 93 Ohanna.
Also under construction at Extra Yachts are two new Extra 86 superyachts, both of which are for sale and scheduled for delivery in 2020.
