[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he new EXTRA 130’ Alloy motor yacht renamed “L.A.U.L.” was launched at the Palumbo Superyachts shipyard in Savona on 4th September. Measuring 40 metres in length and built in just 15 months from signing the contract with a European ship owner, L.A.U.L. is the flagship of the EXTRA Yachts line and is the third to take to the water this year after the EXTRA 86’ Fast “Mini K” and the EXTRA 93’ “Ohanna”.
Extra 130 Alloy will be officially introduced to the market at the next Monaco Yacht Show.
The EXTRA line was developed in 2018 with its first 76-foot model immediately meeting great success at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018 where it was unveiled.
Today, the EXTRA range comprises the following models: 76, 86, 86 Fast, 93, 120 Alloy and 130 Alloy. EXTRA owners are always looking for strong emotions to live in full contact with the sea, both during navigation and at anchor.
The maximum comfort is guaranteed by the very large internal and external volumes stemming from the creative talent of Francesco Guida. The eye-catching design of the profile expresses its marked personality, immediately recognisable by its uniqueness. A refined play of contrasts between the clear and soft white surfaces of fiberglass or aluminium and the elegant dark windows.
The naval architecture of L.A.U.L. is by Studio Rogantin in collaboration with the technical department of Palumbo Superyachts.
“2019 has been an extremely significant year for the EXTRA range, with the delivery of three new models and the consolidation of the brand on the market” states Giuseppe Palumbo, Managing Director of Palumbo Superyachts. “The launch of EXTRA 130 Alloy L.A.U.L. in Savona fills me with pride because, in less than a year from the acquisition of the yard, we’ve managed to build a new-generation 40-metre boat and implement a robust activity related to the refit and maintenance of dozens of superyachts from 24 to 60 metres with a great economic impact on the local economy. We have integrated the workers, we have respected every single condition for winning the tender and our long-term strategy involves further investments on the site.”.
