The new royal yacht Fortuna this summer.

The new Spanish royal yacht Fortuna comes out of the water today at the end of her first summer season in service in Majorca. Built in Cadiz, but designed by the North American Donald L. Blound with the interior designed by the Italian Celeste Dell Anna, she arrived in Palma on June 19, just in time for the Spanish Royal Family's annual summer break on the island at Marivent Palace and one of the first people King Juan Carlos showed round the new luxury yacht was the Aga Khan. At 41.8 metres, the Fortuna made an impressive sight on her final sea trials and throughout the summer she has been closely monitored by engineers as the final alterations and improvements have been made. Now out of the water for the winter, she will have a full service and the first check after her first season at sea. The 35.4 ton Fortuna is said to be the fastest yacht in the Mediterranean with a top speed of around 120 kilometres per hour and at a cruising speed of 48 knots, has a fuel capacity to travel 600 nautical miles, roughly 1000 kilometres. With a large sun deck, accommodation for eight guests and an ample dinning area with an oval table with seating for ten people, there is plenty of space on board.
