“L.A.U.L.” is the first unit of the Extra 130 Alloy which has become Palumbo Superyachts’ flagship with her 40 metre LOA and 390 GT.
She hits the water last year in time to make it to the Monaco Yacht show. “L.A.U.L.” is the first all aluminium alloy build of this model built for a European owner.

“L.A.U.L.”, remains in terms of lines the same of the ‘Extra’ fleet’s which comprises the 76,86, 86 Fast, 93 and 120 Alloy superyachts all boasting large volumes and loads of convivial spaces which are dear to the shipyard’s and designer’s philosophy meaning Engineer Francesco Guida who’s been designing the company’s entire range. Studio Rogantin collaborated with the yard’s in house team in designing the hull’s lines. This yacht sports personality, which has been enhanced further with the white of the superstructure and glazed large glass window like ports.
The interiors’ decor is purely contemporary where the main colour schemes are grey and white. The main living room area is furnished with a large sofa and chaise longue, an armchair and low tables all by Minotti. Proceeding forward we find a dining area with an extendable table which offers a seating capacity of up to 12 around which there are matching Poliform Guest chairs, and a Mesh/Luceplan chandelier. Still on this deck there’s the owner’s large suite, with a study corner furnished with a sofa by Cassino and a desk with a Nahor Mahari Joy table lamp. The night area hosts a centrally placed king size bed, a walk in wardrobe and a bathroom enriched with marble lining. The suite’s doors sport Nya Nordiska decorations.
Four guest cabins are situated below deck as follows: a VIP, one twin and two doubles each one with dedicated bathroom en suite. The upper deck is divided between a modern bridge and helm controls area next to the captain’s cabin, and a Minotti furnished panoramic living room area with a large ‘cinema’screen .
The decor of the interiors comprises a selection of painted pictures by emerging artist Cristina Menni, while entertainment has been supplied by Videoworks and Sonos audio plants as well as video Apple TV 4K systems.
As every project design work that is initialled by Francesco Guido, this one has been carefully planned to offer plenty of room outside on deck where you will find a large “C” shaped sofa for guests to enjoy in the cockpit and an upper deck with two distinct areas one in the bow and the other in the stern. The first one offers a flexible lounge area with hydro-massage pool and the second sports a dining area.
Twin CAT 1,800 HP engines can propel “L.A.U.L.” to a top speed of 17 knots. Range at 12 knots is more than 3,000 nautical miles.
