World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 (State-Owned) #3: Isham Al Baher
#3: ISHAM AL BAHER—379'0"
This yacht was used by the late King Fahd from the 1970’s through the early part of this decade; since she’s usually in Greece away from the public, it’s long been difficult to obtain information on her. Since we haven’t read or heard of the current Saudi king either donating her to another family member (as has been done before by royals) or selling her, for now we’re still considering her a state yacht.
Y: 1973; B: Hellenic Shipyards, Greece; N: Maierform; H: Steel; E: 2/4,360-hp Pielsticks
