this needle-shaped, H-type yacht was manufactured by the Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Corps during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Based on the yacht superstructure developed on the planet Nubia, the 47.9-meter-long Naboo Yacht was created for Senator Padme' Amidala's personal use. It was capable of speeds near 8,000 kilometers per hour in atmosphere, and was equipped with a Class 0.9 Nubia 150 hyperdrive core. This speed allowed Senator Amidala to quickly reach her destination, but proved to be a problem for the N-1 escort fighters that were assigned to protect her. The Naboo Yacht required a pilot and co-pilot to operate, with deck space for an optional navigation or communications officer and a shield operator. A pair of astromech droids completed the crew, providing navigational redundancy. However, the ship was specifically designed to be operated by a single pilot, for those times when Senator Amidala needed to travel quickly and discreetly. Like most Naboo craft, the Yacht was plated in gleaming chrome, and was unarmed. The shielding systems of the Naboo Yacht were jointly developed by the Naboo and the Gungans, providing nearly instantaneous activation in case of emergency. The central quarters used by Senator Amidala were located in a shielded capsule, which could be ejected from the craft if necessary to escape capture.
