Famed Mega Yachts ‘Alysia’ and ‘Lauren L’ to feature in first Abu Dhabi Formula 1™ Grand Prix
The highly anticipated Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, a first for the UAE, is set to garner huge excitement and anticipation from spectators across the globe and for visitors or residents. The event will be held from 30th October to 1st November 2009. For fans wishing to view the races up-close in a luxurious setting, both Mega Yachts are available for charter.
“Following the excitement and hype about Alysia and Lauren L during the recent yacht shows in the UAE, I’m extremely pleased that the Mega Yachts are making their way back to the capital. They are among the most prestigious in the world, and their presence during the Grand Prix will certainly mirror the lifestyle element of the races and the iconic Yas Island,” said 4Yacht Managing Director, Mr. Sam Al Abbasi.
Mega Yacht Lauren L is the world’s largest private yacht available for charter, and at a staggering 90m (296 feet), boasts an extensive guest area of 1,800 square metres (19,400 sq feet) and can accommodate up to 40 guests. Alysia, another highly impressive mega yachts available, is 85.3m (280 feet) long and features 2,400 square metres (25,900 sq feet) of guest-space, highlighted by the Main Deck - one of the largest entertaining spaces of any private yacht.
Entertaining on a grand scale is effortless aboard Alysia. Both yachts hold almost as many crew as they do guests, all of whom are dedicated to making life onboard a pleasure, including gourmet international cuisine chefs. Alysia and Lauren L have helipads onboard and as well feature vast leisure facilities ranging from the lavish gym, Jacuzzis, health & beauty centre offering varied services for relaxation and pampering, to waverunners and tenders for those with a passion for water sports.
The large number of Deck areas offer the perfect setting for outdoor relaxation; huge plasma screens and private-club like saloons and beautiful wooden clad book-lined walls of the library offer ideal indoor retreats. The ultra-luxurious master suites of both mega yachts are lavishly decorated and spread over expansive spaces of over 120 square metres (1292 sq feet), and the VIP suites and further guest suites are equally as extravagant.
“At 4Yacht Arabia, we are very excited to be providing our services during such an esteemed sporting event. We have already seen huge interest in the yachts from some high-profile clients in the region. Our guests will have access to luxury water taxi services to the mainland, limo and helicopter facilities. A stay onboard will ultimately become a once in a lifetime experience, with perfect views of the racing circuit, ultra-luxurious accommodation over the Formula 1 weekend. We aim to indulge those who wish to indulge, and offer the most unique way to enjoy the first Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix,” continued Mr. Al Abbasi.
