Motor Yacht + 100 m
Wednesday March 29, 2017


Motor Yacht - Issham Al Baher - 116 m - Hellenic Shipyards - 1973
Thought to be a gift from Stavros Niarchos to King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, this yacht has now been renamed Issham Al Baher following the launch of Al Salamah in 1999.

Advanced in years, this one-time royal yacht has been passed one rung down the ladder of Saudi Arabian royal yacht ownership. However, it is possible that Issham al-Baher remains a state-funded vessel as the crossover between state and private funding among the Saudi royal family is unclear.
