The boat draws the attention of everyone in Ibiza. The megayacht ‘Radiant’ is 110 meters long, more or less the same as a football field. But what stands out in this boat are the strong security measures. Two water cannons high power capable of reaching any target at 100 meters, weapons that emit waves of low frequency sound or a support boat exceeding 75 knots, are some anti attacks. And that is to protect the billionaire Abdullah Al Futtaim, owner of the boat valued at 240 million euros, it seems little.
In addition to safety, Radiant overhangs the advances in “green” propulsion as it is equipped with filters that manage to stop 95% of the particles in the exhaust of the main engines. Thus emissions are avoided when the yacht is anchored during maneuvers in ports, harbors, bays and navigations at low speed. The Lurssen shipyard was the author in 2009 of this new system.
The boat has 8 cabins that can sleep 16 guests who are 24 hours a day attended by 44 crew.
Abdullah Al Futtaim is considered the richest man fourth Arab Emirates. His fortune was forged in the automotive world as it is the exclusive distributor of Toyota and Honda in their country. In the network of more than 65 companies which owns franchises include Ikea, Toys ‘R’ or Marks & Spencer and construction businesses.
