Platinum Yachts of Dubai converted a small passenger ship into a private yacht, named Dubawi (also the name of a stallion, the offspring of the famous Dubai-based Millenium). The grand-scale undertaking was second only to Platinum Yachts’ largest project—Dubai (No. 2 on the list in 2012).
In 2001, Platinum Yachts acquired the enormous unfinished carcass and 250 containers full of spare parts and worked four years on finishing this giant. The Andrew Winch-styled Dubai, features a 10,000 sq.-m painted surface finished in Awlgrip Snow White, and stylistic enhancements in stainless steel around portholes and large windows.
