The new Arabian 100’ leaves the Boatspeed yard

Boatspeed Australia has nearly completed the building of yet another state of the art 105 ft trimaran yacht. This yacht is one of the new Arabian 100 Class for Oman in the Middle East.

It only took six months to complete the mainhull, beams and floats. The yacht has been sent as components to Oman where it will be assembled.

A number of Boatspeed staff will fly out in approximately a month to carry out the assembly alongside apprentices from Oman Sail.

All of the parts were shrink wrapped in plastic on Monday 6th April and transported that evening. The long load was taken by road to Newcastle where it was loaded on board a ship bound for Salalah in Oman.
