The Sheikh’s super yacht took just one year to come to fruition at San Lorenzo’s shipyard in Italy. It was then shipped to the Middle East via special cargo transport from Genoa, before passing through the Suez Canal where it entered the Red Sea. The yacht finally arrived in Dubai after about 15 days transit.

So what can you expect from this luxury super yacht? On the lower deck, there are two double and two triple cabins, which can accommodate up to ten guests in lavish surroundings. Her crew quarters can accommodate 6, as well as the capatain. Two MTU 2775 HP engines provide guests with great performance and comfort whilst on board, with a cruising speed of roughly 25 knots.
