Ancona, October 23
Presented as a world première at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show, the 40-meter superyacht “L.A.U.L.”, from the EXTRA 130ft Alloy series, stood out for her harmonic lines and incredibly considerable volume making her one of the most comfortable boats of her category.
Measuring 40 metres in length and made entirely of aluminium for a European shipowner, L.A.U.L. is the flagship of the EXTRA Yachts line developed in the following models: 76, 86, 86 Fast, 93, 120 Alloy and 130 Alloy.
A peculiarity of EXTRA Yachts owners is that they constantly seek to live strong emotions at sea, both during navigation and at anchor.
Maximum comfort is also guaranteed by the very large indoor and outdoor spaces stemming from the creative talent of Francesco Guida, whereas L.A.U.L. naval architecture is the result of the cooperation between Studio Rogantin and the technical office of Palumbo Superyachts.
EXTRA 130 Alloy doesn’t go unnoticed thanks to her 40 metre length and 8.4 metre width providing a 390 GT interior volume.
An impressive number of advantages make the EXTRA 130 Alloy the perfect superyacht for socializing and entertaining with family and friends.
The exterior profile emphasizes her strong personality, setting herself apart for the refined play of contrasts between the clear and soft white surfaces and the elegant dark windows.
The contemporary style in shades of grey and white of the outstanding interiors is specifically designed to maximize space and make it comfortable so to facilitate guests’ entertainment and to enhance the unparalleled panoramic view from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the main salon.
Stepping on the main deck, a large C-shaped sofa furnishes the sheltered area before the glass door leading to the large saloon fitted with a bar, a leather sofa with chaise lounge, armchair and small tables, all signed by Minotti. An extendable round table seating up to 12 people with Poliform Guest seats and a Mesh / Luceplan design chandelier put the final touch to the living area.
At bow, the full-beam master stateroom takes centre-stage. To ensure maximum privacy, the bedroom entrance is preceded by an anteroom conveniently arranged as a study with a Cassina sofa, a desk with armchair and a Nahor Mahari Joy floor lamp. The large walk-in closet is equipped with a vanity set with seat. The doors are made of laminated glass with Nya Nordiska decorative fabric interlayer. The bathroom, appropriately equipped with a double sink and a large shower in the centre, is cladded with white-grey marble.
The layout of the main deck also includes a professional galley with 3 column refrigerators and a lift.
Outdoor, the upper deck boasts a dining area with TV, bar, large sofa and chaise-lounge as well as a large sunbathing area and several seating facilities. At the bow, the versatile C-shaped sofa can also transform into a large sun pad suitably provided with two up/ down tables and a hot tub for maximum comfort and privacy.
Indoor, this bridge houses a comfortable Minotti living room dominated by a giant screen, a pantry, the helm station and the captain’s cabin.
A noteworthy feature is the internal staircase cladded with ‘silver shine’ slate stone.
The lower deck comprises four cabins including 1 VIP, 1 twin and two double guest rooms, all with private bathrooms.
To complete the atmosphere, carefully selected paintings by Cristina Menni find aboard L.A.U.L. the perfect showcase for this outstanding emerging artist’s personal style, and offer an insight into her creative mind.
The crew area, located in the forward lower deck with direct internal access, has 4 cabins that can accommodate 6 people.
A hydraulic retractable mechanism opens the transom door to reveal a large garage housing a 5.4-metre tender and a jet ski.
