SLIPSTREAM is the first composite motoryacht to be designed by Dubois. Built by Warren Yachts of New South Wales, Australia, she is 43m of modern concept in terms of both her design and construction. With her black hull and silver superstructure she is a head turner and DNA is particularly proud of her because she represents all that the design company stands for:- advanced and thoroughly seaworthy naval architecture, an original but practical approach to space planning, good sight lines and a sleek, eye catching exterior design. The interior, designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, combined with exceptional craftsmanship, creates a very special atmosphere in which to relax.
