Verhaaren-designed ‘Project Das’...


This 37m 50-knot sportscruiser is for day trips in the Persian Gulf.

MARCH 2011

Gacey, near Besneville, France-based Verhaaren Naval Architects recently finished this high-performance 37m (121ft) ‘Das’ commission for the Middle East. She has been specifically designed for day trips in the Persian Gulf. Waterjet propulsion ensures safe shallow-water navigation and good manoeuvrability.
The superstructure is designed as one single open space with two large side-windows that allowing light to penetrate the large saloon. When anchored or moored, these windows can be opened for even better panoramic views and access to fresh air.
