About Dhafir

Feadship's remarkable series of successes in the Middle East continued after the launch of the 64.64m Al Riyadh and the 48.00m Daria, the latter receiving immense attention upon arriving in her home region. Feadship was now even more in demand - and Jan van Lent and Frits de Voogt made numerous trips to the Middle East. The primary destination was Abu Dhabi, where two boats were commissioned: the 51.25m Abu Al Abyadh and the 40.50m Dhafir.
