PROJECT:

MY FONERS
(FORMERLY FORTUNA]

Spanish-built superyacht MY Fortuna, formerly known as MY Foners, was launched in 2000 as the Royal Yacht of Spain. She was designed by DLBA with the goal of becoming the fastest superyacht in the world. The vessel was built by Izar Yachts and was originally named MY FORTUNA. She is propelled by three KaMeWa waterjets receiving a total of 16,800 kilowatts (22,600 HP) with two V12 MAN diesel engines and three Rolls-Royce gas turbines in a CODOG arrangement. DLBA conducted extensive research and development programs for the aerodynamic and hydrodynamic features of the vessel to facilitate successful operation as a luxury yacht with a speed capability approaching 70 knots. Subsequently, DLBA teamed with Humphree to develop innovative interceptor steering fins, with the goal of eliminating the parasitic losses of waterjet steering. Upon initial sea trials of Fortuna with the new technology installed, the yacht achieved 70.1 knots, and today remains the fastest luxury yacht in the world.
