A Dubai Prince parked his Maritime Rolls Royce in Motril Port one night last month after sailing in from Puerto Banus. It's his own; he's not borrowing it from Daddy.
Hamdan Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and the UAE, owns this monster; one of the biggest in the world, with a length of 141 metres and space onboard for 60 guests and 56 crew – beats an afternoon on the Isle of Wight Ferry!
Most of the passengers sauntered off to Granada for the day disguised as mortal beings (but to little effect) to have a nostalgic peek at some mislaid, family, real estate from a few centuries back.
This mega yacht, which started off life as a naval asset, now has blue tinted windows, giving it a snazzy appearance. Not much is made public about what it looks like inside but we can rule out Steptoe & Son’s bone yard. We do know that it has several pools, a spa, a heliport, a bar and pretty impressive cabins.
Going back to its origins, the yacht started off life as a Dutch frigate (Hr Ms Piet Heyn F-811) as back in 2003 the Dutch Government sold two of them to the Arab Emirates, little did they know that somebody would staple a couple of decks on one, slap some super-hip tinted windows on it and turn it into a salty, stretch limousine on steroids.
