About the St. David Superyacht

Custom built by famed Italian shipbuilder Benetti to Lloyd’s class in 2008, the St. David was awarded ‘Best Charter Yacht’ by the Robb Report in 2009 and was also a finalist in the World Superyacht Awards of the same year. The St. David underwent an extensive refit in 2017, which included the installation of the latest audio-visual entertainment systems. The 60-metre superyacht was designed inside and out by Andrew Winch, who crafted a low, streamlined and curvaceous shape reminiscent of Italian supercars; in other words, the perfect yacht for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix!

On-Board Luxury

Moored in a privileged berth at Yas Marina, the St. David will offer three decks for watching the on-track action, all of which are connected by a grand staircase with a skylight that provides natural light throughout the vessel. The design enhances social interaction on board with open, spacious and functional areas for guests to interact and enjoy the unique trackside atmosphere at Yas Marina Circuit.

Features include a vast sundeck offering shade for relaxation and alfresco dining, main deck bar with large entertainment area and a bridge deck veranda. You won’t miss any of the on-track action thanks to an innovative screen on the sun deck that projects two-way images. By night, the entire deck is transformed into a private nightclub where a state of the art audio-visual system will electrify some of the most exclusive yacht parties at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Inspired by the best hotels on the Italian Riviera, the interior of the St. David offers modern luxury and innovative design. On the main deck, the saloon boasts a full wet bar and entertainment centre with comfortable seating that leads into a formal dining area. The custom-made dining table seats up to 12, allowing all the on-board guests to dine together.
